Everyone has their own reasons for starting and running a business, but for most people there are three motivating factors high on the list:
• The freedom to do things your way,
• To work with who you want, when you want, and
• Financial freedom
All too often though, the reality is different. The business is stressful to run, difficult to grow and all too dependent upon you as the owner. And, as a consequence of that, it’s not worth what it could be.
In this short talk, Tristan will outline why it pays to focus on business exit strategies from the outset.
You will learn how to recognise when you are in “The Owner’s Trap”, how to escape it and why freedom comes with having a valuable, sellable business.
And, when you leave, you will know the eight key factors that drive your company’s value and what you need to consider to gain freedom over your time and money so you can get back to the reasons you started your business in the first place.
