Today I’m cleaning up from the second blizzard in five days. Canada is awesome.
I still wanted to take the time to write my weekly e-mail though because being stuck inside has give me the chance to do more work on my latest project.
You know, most small business owners spend all day working in their business managing staff and serving customers. They don’t get many chances for a break. If these people suddenly had to sell their business, do you think anyone would be willing to pay money for the privilege of being tied down to a business that required non-stop attention? I’ve seen it too many times.
You see, I've been helping people for years to sell their companies and oftentimes I need to work with them first to make it sellable. This usually means fixing broken business practices, implementing organizational structures, job descriptions and workflow management.
It’s impossible for a business to grow and for the owner to step away if the basic framework of the business as a money-making machine is not built.
That stuff sounds hard and time consuming, but it doesn't have to be.
Over the years I've actually developed a 13-step process to make it easy to systematize a business - even while continuing to manage the day-to-day operations.
It doesn't take a special consultant or a team of professionals. It just requires a plan.
Right now I’ve started recording the modules for my new online course called Build a Business That People Will Want To Buy. See the introduction module here: https://youtu.be/j2I7dhXp7eo
This program will be helpful to business owners and to new entrepreneurs starting up or those who wish to buy a business some day.
