Grow to Sell – but NEVER Sell!

With all the industry talk of buying and selling management companies, Brad Larsen will detail out reasons to sell….and reasons to NOT sell. There is no better drill to make improvements to your business than taking the mindset that you are preparing to place that business on the market. Give yourself a timeline. Lay out a plan. Get your accounting in order. Along the way, this presentation will detail out specific actions with consequences in selling a business – and what to be prepared for with buyer integration, staff retention, federal & state sales tax, and tax avoidance strategies to consider. It may be the right option for you and there are plenty of purchasers! Discussing the flip side of that, Brad will make the case why you should never sell your business by empowering team members and creating a legacy income stream full of opportunities for your family and team. You will learn more about buying and selling a management company, and this presentation may sway you in one direction if you have ever been on the fence about the future of your business.
