Crash Course


What do I need to consider?


Business owners need to consider several important questions and seek answers as early in their business careers as possible:

  1. What is my “life plan” after my business career has ended?
  2. Do I ever want to really retire and yield control of my business, or do I seek liquidity?
  3. How do I protect by business and my family if anything happens to me or my key employees?
  4. How do I maximize the value of my business before sale?
  5. Who will run the business after me?
  6. What are the mechanics of an effective, tax-efficient transition?
  7. How do I extract maximum value from my business after so many years of hard work?
