YOUR BUSINESS MAY BE WORTH MORE THAN YOU THINK

If your company produces revenue but makes little to no profit, you are leaving money on the table

Should you sell your business?



It depends... Do you want to? Do you need to? Have you thought about it? Whatever your answer is - it is a correct one. It is entirely up to you what you do with your business. After all, you are the business owner, and no one should be telling you what to do.

A different question: should your business be sellable?

Well... Let's see. What makes a business sell-able?

The company should be profitable, stable, and growing. Potential buyers will look for a company with rock-solid financial records, unique product or service, employee dedication, customer satisfaction, and it's ability to survive economic downturns.

Should your company have all that? Good question.

Should you sell your business after you've achieved all that?

Still up to you...

Seven ways to unlock your business' hidden value

  1. Get paid to promote your product or service – turn your customers into salespeople.
    Think of the last time you bought something so outrageously good you just had to tell someone. Or the time you got service and were treated like royalty. How many times did you tell that story? Imagine your customers paying you to get your products or services and then going out of their way to tell everyone they know about your company. Happy customers are your best sales force - and they paid you to do it.

  2. Hire/retain best talent – help your employees earn more to increase your profits.
    Create a nurturing and exciting environment for your employees and watch their productivity skyrocket. Not only will it increase your profitability enabling you to raise their compensation, it will also turn your team into volunteer recruiters and proud promoters for your business.

  3. Looks do matter – make small changes to see big results.
    Your company’s physical attributes say a lot about you and do a lot for your business. Clean and organized design, whether applied to building, website, or brochures has an enormous impact on a prospect's decision to become a customer or move on.

  4. Automate processes to increase productivity and reduce costs.
    Evaluate and optimize all the tasks your team performs and document them in detail for all new hires. Work audits reveal inefficiencies and enable you to improve quality. Procedure manuals cut down on training time and ensure complete and accurate transfer of knowledge.

  5. Buy the right company to instantly increase your bottom line.
    If you needed to clean your house, would you try to invent and build a floor-sweeping device or would you just go to a local store and buy a broom? It’s always exciting to create something new when it doesn’t yet exist. Sometimes however it just makes more sense to buy a company that already has what you need and can immediately create income.

  6. Remove risks by removing dependencies.
    To begin with, the word “dependency” itself triggers caution in your mind, doesn’t it? Being able to depend on your friends and loved ones is a great thing. Depending on anything or anyone too much is not as good for business. Making sure your company can survive changes in factors outside of your control significantly increases the value of your business.

  7. Cooperate – create packages to cross-sell.
    Think of a product or service that would complement yours. Can you approach the company that sells it and create a package giving your customers a chance to save time and money. You both can promote it and increase market outreach. A win-win-win.


Not only will taking these steps increase your bottom line, it will make your company a lot more attractive to potential buyers when the time comes to sell. The more attractive the business – the better chance you have of getting your asking price.

We have creative financing options available

There are many reasons why things could go wrong: economic downturns, natural disasters, fraud, relationship break-downs, among many others. Sometimes things can get so bad that bankruptcy may seem like the only option. although it may provide some protections for the business owner it has many implications: a 10-year record preventing you from opening another business, potential personal asset loss, emotional agony of watching your creation perish and employees lose their livelihoods just to name a few. There is a better way. We can help restructure your debt, keep the business doors open and continue to provide jobs. We will work with you to create a path to removing personal guarantees and protect your personal assets. Consultation and service are strictly confidential. This program is applicable to businesses that fit following criteria:

  • Debt is considerably higher than business valuation
  • Fair market value of assets is at least $500k
  • All other options have been exhausted
  • Business is still operating albeit at diminished capacity


Truth be told, hardly ever will you find a business owner thinking about an exit when everything is working fine. Only when something is missing or is not quite right will a person really consider an exit, which may be just the thing to provide a perfect solution.

Some of the reasons an entrepreneur may think about selling:

  • Financia freedom
  • Retirement
  • Health concerns
  • Personal circumstances
  • Time
  • Other interests


Whatever the reasons may be, it is always a good idea to make sure that your company

  1. creates enough income to support your lifestyle and your employee's livelihoods
  2. is desirable and valuable enough to potential buyers when the time comes to sell


We can help you achieve both.

Lana believes that by making several changes, some smaller than others, entrepreneurs can dramatically improve their chances of desirable outcome. She partnered with Scotty Schindler, an entrepreneur himself who started and sold a very successful real estate business in Australia to write a guide to those who seek similar results.

    The book is written from a perspective of both the business buyer and the business seller. With many real-life examples and written in easy to understand language, it outlines the steps any business owner can take to not only make their company more sell-able but also better performing even if exit it not on the horizon just yet.
