We Exist To Help Business Owners Build Transferable Value, Exit On Their Own Terms and Conditions, and Leave Their Desired Legacy.


ENNIS Legacy Partners is a fee-only consulting firm serving small business owners ($3 - $20 million in revenue) and leaders of non-profit organizations.  All planning begins with clarity of the owner's core values and financial, family, business, philanthropic, and legacy goals. We then identify planning gaps, make recommendations, and help you coordinate the critical touch-points between major planning areas and needed expert advisors.  We can also act as Project Manager for a comprehensive exit plan.

Our competitive differentiators include:  1) Comprehensive, objective, and values-based advice and planning for both personal and business exit readiness.  2) Willingness and ability to act as Project Manager for a comprehensive exit plan.  3) Creation of a strategic financial plan for the business.
