Most business owners are planning on the sale of their business to fund their retirement… but most owners have no exit strategy in place! Even if retirement is years away, find out NOW what you need to do to get the highest price for your business. An experienced business broker can provide expert advice, formulate a staging and marketing plan, and find qualified buyers.

In this session you will learn:

  • Valuation/Process/Confidentiality

  • How to Increase Business Value to Sell for Top Dollar
  • Marketing & Negotiation

This presentation is for all business owners because all business owners should know the true market value of their business.

Their expertise is helping businesses successfully stage and sell!
