Helping Owners Prepare Their Company For Sale
If you are thinking you would like to sell your business in the next five years, you should start planning today. About 80% of the businesses on the market in Canada will not sell in the first year. It is primarily due to business owners not realizing the need to plan for the sale of their business 3-5 years ahead of time.
As with a homeowner putting a house up for sale, any entrepreneur planning to sell their business, typically his or her biggest asset, wants to realize the highest possible return. However, a BDC study shows that many business owners who plan to sell and retire are not making the best moves to ensure that outcome.
On the upside, as a business owner, if you start to prepare your business for sale now, you will increase your opportunity of selling your business faster and get a higher dollar value.

Frequently Asked Questions
Why do people hire small business consultants?
Small business owners hire business consultants as a cost-effective way to bridge a gap in knowledge and skills within their company, or to bring a fresh, objective, and professional perspective to the company.
Optimization: In some cases, your company may have grown very quickly and you know there are lots of things you could be doing better - but you don’t even know where to start. A business consultant can bring a fresh perspective, evaluate areas of your business to determine the processes and procedures that will get you growing again.
To create the solution(s): In some cases, you may have a goal that you can’t achieve, either because there is a skills gap or because it is simply not within your company’s core competency. Hiring a business consultant can save time and money, and ultimately help you achieve a better result.
To find the problem(s): In many cases, a business may be exhibiting problematic “symptoms”, such as a decrease in sales, or cash-flow issues, and internal management is unable to pinpoint the source of the problem. In this case, a business consultant can review the symptoms to determine the root of the problem.
