Seller Readiness™ targets the emotional challenges of transitioning your business. We help you with the “people” side of the transaction, the side often missed and essential to a successful sale or transition.

  1. Succession planning
  2. Executive/management team development
  3. Family/business transition assessments
  4. Creation of a road map of prioritized actions (that are not overwhelming)
  5. Pre-due diligence
  6. Preparing you and your team for the new future

Over 50% of owners who try to sell their business alone will fail.

Businesses that go straight to market sell for only 70-80% of the original asking price.

75% of former business owners regret selling their business.
