Course Description

You work for years on your business, but you only sell it once!

That is in itself a problem.

No rehearsals, no practice, no experience!

And, only one shot at getting it right.

The difference between right and catastrophic can cost you a fortune, some times literally millions of dollars.

As an adviser, I have been there many, many times in the last 28 years. I have seen good, sometimes even great. And I have seen downright awful! (Of course, that was good news if I was on the other side at the time).

So this course is for you, the Entrepreneur who is considering selling his/her business!

These are my real insights from my experience, pulled together to help you understand some of the pitfalls of the sales process which will hopefully prepare you for your company's sale.

You don't have to follow my advice here, but you have nothing to lose by checking it out and then using what works for you!

Above all, I want your company's sale to be a success. Hopefully, this will help. And if it does, even a little bit, the value multiplier for you could still be worth thousands of dollars.

Come, join me today, enroll in the Course and discover how you can maximise the value of your business in a sale!
