Event description

Description

You’ve worked hard to build your business, but now you’re thinking about an exit plan. Finding a buyer isn’t always easy, so we’ll share some of the more creative strategies for successfully transitioning to new ownership. We’ll help you see how the timing of your exit, the valuation of your assets, and your plans for the future all fit together.

Exit planning combines finance, retirement, insurance, estate and business planning. The Business Guides is one of the few accounting firms in the region to focus on this service. Our team has professional certifications in exit planning, financial planning, and valuation.

We have helped with the transition of more than 200 small businesses.

As a bonus for this seminar, we’ve invited some successful transitioners to share their exit planning stories.

Business owners who have at least a 3- to 5-year window for stepping out of their business.

You may reserve up to two seats when you register.

Employees are welcome to attend without the business owner.

Yes, if you create a free Eventbrite account, you may log on and edit your order information on the Tickets page anytime up until the day of the event.
