Understanding your unique needs as a successful business owner

76% of business owners would like to transition in the next 10 years and nearly 50% in the next five years. Between 80% and 90% of their wealth is tied up in their business*. 

As owners exit their businesses, whether by choice or involuntarily, wealth changes hands. These wealth transfers can have profound effects for the owners, their families, their employees and their communities.

What can you do to be prepared?

Dedicated team designed for owners

Business owners typically face a different set of challenges and obstacles than most as they think about retirement. With varying risks and more stakeholders involved, there are a number of factors that need to be addressed effectively.

That’s why we have developed an enhanced process for working together with owners to:

  • Maximize the transferrable business value
  • Prepare financially for a preferred lifestyle
  • Plan personally for their next act after exiting the business

How do I make a living once my paychecks stop?

Our driving principles developed over decades in working with owners are all geared to answering this question and addressing your biggest concerns.

We help business owners take the business that has funded their lifestyle, turn it into cash through a liquidity event and then put that cash to work supporting their desired lifestyle for the remainder of their lives.

Where do I start? I’m too busy…who can help me?

Preparing to exit a business can be daunting. We’ve created a team to be there for you, whether you’re just starting to think about transitioning, are in the midst of an exit or are already in your third act.

We run on EOS and our Senior Advisor team includes a Vistage member, three with the Certified Exit Planning Advisor® (CEPA®) designation, and one who Founded and is President of the Southeast Michigan Chapter of the Exit Planning Institute.
