Succession Planning: It's Never Too Early

Date: 
Friday, March 1, 2019 - 12:00pm to 1:00pm

Speaker: Darrell Goertzen, Business Advisor at Venture Connect

Join us for a 1-hr Lunch N Learn session from 12:00pm-1:00pm at the Chamber of Commerce (visitor centre) boardroom, 2533 Port Alberni Highway. 

Every business will sell at some point; even yours. And when it's time to sell, your business will become one of hundreds of other businesses on the market needing a buyer. How will your business stand out and gain the interest of a buyer? It's a buyer's market now and this is expected to be the situation for many years to come. You need to be prepared and have your business positioned strongly to appeal to potential buyers. The financial payoff can be significant and your emotional strain reduced when your business is correctly prepared. Even if you don't plan to sell for years to come, it's not too early to start. It's interesting that we detail our cars and stage our homes yet many business owners fail to do the same with their business. Invest an hour in your business, know your options and be prepared to get the most from your business sale.
