    You Are Not Alone.

    If you have thought about leaving your business but don’t know how to begin, you are in good company. According to The BEI 2016 Business Owner Survey Report, 79% of successful business owners hope to exit their companies within the next 10 years. Unless those owners are familiar with The BEI Seven Step Exit Planning Process ™, it is doubtful that they will exit in style. In fact, the SBA observed, “At any given time, 40 percent of U.S. businesses are facing the transfer of ownership issue” and “the primary cause for failure…is lack of planning.”

    Three Elements of a Successful Exit

    To exit successfully, owners need :

    A ROAD MAP
    Exit Planning is a process that helps owners decide where they want to go and how to get there.
    EXPERIENCED GUIDES
    Owners must assemble a team of trained and experienced advisors to guide them through choices and decisions as they work toward their exit goals.
    IMPLEMENTATION
    Success depends on a disciplined implementation timetable keyed to an owner’s Exit Plan.

    Without experienced advisors, an Exit Plan, and an implementation timetable, the chances for a successful exit are slim.

    Are Your Trusted Advisors Asking You About Your Plans for a Successful Exit?

    Most advisors don’t because they simply don’t know that there is a proven Exit Planning Process. Good Exit Planning requires the coordinated efforts of a number of advisors – minimally, a CPA, attorney, and financial or insurance professional. Working together as your Advisor Team, advisors skilled in Exit Planning can help you achieve your exit goals.
