I met author Chris Snider at a Exit Planning Institute meeting here in San Diego. As I listened to him speak, everything he was saying resonated with me personally and professionally. How many of you reading this blog entry have businesses and are making an effort to build the value in the business, but it seems to be a struggle? Believe me this is not uncommon, it happens more that most business owners think. Dealing with the challenge of building value in your business, not just working for an above average salary with nothing left in the end to sell.
In Chris’s new book “Walking to Destiny-11 Actions An Owner Must Take to Rapidly Grow Value & Unlock Wealth” he points out the reasons why business owners don’t not build value, and the solutions to building great value in your business. Chris is the designer of a process called the “Value Acceleration Methodology” which is the formula that he developed and can help any business owner build value, and sell their business when they decide to transition for a value that they expect and are happy with.
If you are a baby boomer and own you own business chances are you are going to have to make the decision to create your succession plan very soon. In the next 20 years over 20 trillion dollars in business value will be sold, transferred to the next generation or merged with other acquiring company. This is a huge problem, and opportunity for you the business owner to take action and create value now so you get the most for your business when you choose to sell.
I would encourage you to listen to this podcast with Chris, for he is one of the leading experts in the field of exit planning. His organization Exit Planning Institute help advisors get certified as CEPA’s (Certified Exit Planning Advisors). Enjoy this great interview with Chris Snider the author of “Walking to Destiny” it’s worth your time to read his book and if you have a business and are attempting to create greater value this book is a must!!!!
I think this is the fourth time I have interviewed Michael Gerber, and each time I set down to speak with Michael I am amazed as how vibrant and alive he conveys his compelling message about entrepreneurship. In his newly released book entitled “Beyond The E-Myth” Michael takes the reader beyond all previous iterations of his E-Myth message to a place that will transform the reader.
Michael states that we need to think of our small business as prodcuts that need to be packaged and sold. We can no longer be the one man or woman operation expecting to break through the ceilings of complexity. If we are to grow we need to think of growing our organizations into business with a 1,000 employees, it is not necessary that we accomplish this goal but we need to shift our thinking that we are going to be larger organizations.
Michael know that the best entrepreneurs have a dream, a mission and a vision. Knowing what they are and remaining focused on your dream, mission and vision are key components in transforming your business and your own personal life. Michael also believes in having a Great Story and being able to articulate your message is one of the key to success–a Great Story is always about going beyond the ordinary and achieving greatness.
If you have an interest in transforming your business into one that will as some point not need you and will run without you, then you need to listen to my interview with Michael Gerber about his new book “Beyond The E-Myth” If you want to learn more please click here to be directed to Michael’s website where you can learn more about his workshops and events.
