Building Value

Most entrepreneurs assume their industry and size will determine the value of their company. While size matters, eight other factors impact company value more than your industry. We use the Value Builder System™ to get these eight factors right. See how your company scores and get your personal report by completing the Value Builder questionnaire.

Exit Planning

We help business owners leave their companies in their own time, with complete control and maximum value. We help in building transferable value to enhance the final value. Exit Planning is nothing more than good business and strategic planning in the here and now, but with an end date in mind. It’s never to soon to start. We can help get you there.

Certified Valuations

As a business owner, you know the importance of regularly reviewing and understanding the value of your business. It’s a smart move to check the value of your business every three to five years and to take the steps necessary to increase value, if needed. We provide certified and informational valuations to help you determine the value of your business.

Compensation Strategies

To grow your business, you need a high-performance culture.  To create a high-performance culture, you need top talent.  To attract retain and reward your top talent, you need an irresistible value proposition.  And to create an irresistible value proposition you need a compelling pay offer.  From annual bonus incentives to long term reward plans we can help.

Financial planning as an employee benefit can help reverse this growing trend toward financial insecurity.


Common Questions

What do I do?
I help business owners who are too busy working in the business to be working on the business. I help them prepare their businesses for sale both now and/or in the future. I help them achieve a highly decentralized business so they no longer have to be the center of the business and have every decision flow through them. This equals freedom, fulfillment and financial abundance. We will work together with a focus on growing the business, so the owner is free to make the choice when and if they want to sell it. My clients build profitable, transferable businesses that are ready for all contingencies, attractive to buyers and very sellable.

How do I do it?
Using a proven process, the owner and I will evaluate where they are in detail and then begin improving every aspect of the business that a buyer would look at. After completing a simple Clarity Event, a small investment of time each month will create real and measurable results.

What is the cost?
After making a small investment in the Clarity Event, services begin at a base rate of $1,500 per month, which may vary depending on the size and complexity of your company. Surprised? Don’t be. My process is designed, and priced, for Main Street business owners of all sizes. I am committed to providing high-quality affordable services to ensure that my clients receive the best possible value for their investment.

What should you do next?
I’m an easy guy to talk to, and that’s what should happen next. You and I should have a simple conversation. We’ll talk about your business, what you want to accomplish with it, the pain points you need to eliminate and I’ll answer your questions about ways we can work together to create the results you want to see in your business. No obligation, no cost, no hard sell. Schedule a 20-minute conversation.

Want to wait and think about it longer?
Many owners who come to my company are stuck, burned out and unhappy with their business. They find themselves in the “Owners Trap.” Why would you wait to start making the business better? Reaching out is not you saying, you want to sell your business now, it’s you saying you want your business to work better, so you can be ready to sell either today or even never.


The Clarity Event

We use the Clarity Event to build an understanding of your business, its ebbs and flows, its “Valleys of Financial Death,” and, more importantly, how you feel about what needs to be done, fixed, repaired, scaled up, or rebirthed.

When we begin our work together, we assume you will want to check us out and experience our product and our deliverables along with our results without making a huge, expensive long-term commitment like other business improvement consultants will expect from you. We are different. Our Clarity Event process is designed to be completed in just a few months as we diagnose and prepare a series of deliverables that analyze, measure, and ultimately recommend a path forward for you and your business. The action items on the Road Map we prepare can be a DIY exercise, or you can choose an advisor to take you through the recommendations. If you hire us, we will guide you through our actionable Value Building Platform.

Our Clarity Event is priced according to the amount of work needed. Our fees range from $2,000 to $10,000 monthly for the 3 to 4 months it takes to complete the exercises in the process. It all depends on you and what you want to accomplish. Some owners come to us to solve a single problem, while some want a full diagnostic. You, the owner, decide.

The Clarity Event Deliverables

Below is a list of Deliverables included in the Clarity Event with clickable resources and brief description of each to help you get started. We will work together to determine the scope of help you need and will provide a summary report we call the “Value Builder Blueprint of Action.”
