Exit On Your Own Terms And Conditions.

According to the 2016 BEI Business Owner Survey, 80% of business owners polled believe that a successful exit from their business will occur because of planning and action items they implement.  

HOWEVER, that same survey revealed that 83% of business owners polled did not have a concrete, written plan for their exit.  

We exist to change that statistic.  Our value proposition is comprehensive, objective, values-based advice and planning for an owner's eventual exit and desired legacy.

There is much at stake when you leave your business...

  • CONTROL - Leaving on your own terms and conditions. 
  • VALUES-BASED & LEGACY GOALS - Family Harmony, Personal & Business Reputation, Business Culture & Values, Care for Employees & Customers, Role in Community, etc..

The EXIT BASEPLAN is right for business owners who realize there is much at stake and they need a plan, but...

  • You don't know how to get started.
  • You are very busy and needing to focus on the day-to-day and do not want to add to your workload.

The Value Proposition includes:

  • Clarify owner-based goals and objectives and an appropriate exit route.
  • Expose reality regarding personal and business readiness for a successful exit.
  • Create a foundational plan with solutions for maximizing sellable/transferable business value and minimizing risk.
  • Exiting on your own terms and conditions.
