Introduction

About Me

My passion is helping entrepreneurs and business owners obtain successful results with The Most Important Transaction of Their Life – the ownership transition of their business. I help my clients understand and craft imaginative alternatives and strategies to prepare for and accomplish a successful business succession transaction. I am flexible in my approach, which is necessary when dealing with the multiple issues and potential roadblocks that can pop up in such an important transition. My clients have owned and operated a wide variety of businesses, from low to high-tech, professional services, virtual, and bricks-and-mortar

My focus is on business succession, both external and internal transfers of business ownership. I help business owners prepare for business succession, including: inside sales to co-founders, where the agreements in place are very likely outdated and do not cover situations that are more likely to arise now than when they formed or acquired the business; sales to key employees or junior associates, who will need sufficient time to pay for a full buy out; a sale to outside third parties, where it is very likely that the business could create better systems to optimize the value of the business and its assets. And then I help those business owners accomplish the transaction.
