Are you a business owner? Do you expect the sale of your business to fund your retirement? If you answered "yes" to both of these questions you need to attend this seminar!

According to a 2016 BEI Business Owner Survey, 75% of business owners would leave today if they felt they could receive enough value to provide financial security.  However, only 17% of these business owners have created a written exit plan. 

This free seminar will: 

  • Examine the 5 alternative ways to exit your business.
  • Discuss the value gap - the gap between a third party assessment of the value of your business vs. your perceived value .
  • Outline the 8 steps to successful business succession planning.
  • Describe the 3 top legal strategies for building value.
  • Outline keys to unlock transferable value for your Business.
  • Explain the fears regarding selling your business that can keep you locked into NEVER retiring. 
  • Summarize the 3 steps to take now to unlock transferable value resulting in a successful retirement. 

This seminar is critical for business owners who would like to transfer their business within the next 10 years, and we suggest that your spouse/significant other join you as well.  Business transfer and retirement planning are emotional issues that affect your whole family.  It's best that everyone has the correct information to avoid misunderstandings in the future.
