    The Goose and Egg Strategy for Selling Your Business | Creating an Exitable Business (Part 3)

    The Goose and Egg Strategy for Selling Your Business | Creating an Exitable Business (Part 3)

    Did you know you can sell pieces of your business and still keep the primary entity?
    On today's episode, host Roland Frasier shares how business owners can have multiple exits without selling the main company.


    As a business owner, you don't have to sell your entire company should you decide to cash out or retire. Think of it like the goose and the egg analogy. The goose is your company; the golden eggs are independent entities that aren't tied to the larger business. These smaller entities can be sold, but the goose remains and could lay even more golden eggs in the future.


    Listen in to learn how you can develop the clarity you need to sell pieces of your business for massive money while retaining the parent company.


    IN THIS EPISODE, YOU'LL LEARN:
    What are exit-ready structures?
    The numerous types of business exits
    Why it's so hard to sell a proprietorship
    Entity choices in the UK, US, and Australia
    Main stages of business growth and evolution

    Preventing Your Employees from 'Quiet Quitting'

    Preventing Your Employees from 'Quiet Quitting'

    What is quiet quitting, and should business owners be worried about it?

    On today's episode, hosts Roland and Ryan tackle version 2.0 of the Great Resignation - quiet quitting. Despite the name, Roland explains that the term has nothing to do with actually quitting your job. Employees still show up for work but only perform tasks on the job requirements and nothing more. So no more going above and beyond, staying up late, or replying to emails on weekends.
    Some people view quiet quitting as a rebellion against hustle culture, while the older generations believe the concept is another pointer to Millenials and Gen Z's supposed laziness. Nonetheless, quietly dropping the responsibilities you believe are beyond your job description is not a sustainable solution. There are other better ways to achieve what you want, Ryan says.


    Tune in to learn more about the quiet quitting craze that's taking TikTok and the workforce by storm and what you as a business owner can do to address quiet quitters n your team.


    IN THIS EPISODE, YOU'LL LEARN:
    What is quiet quitting?
    The reasoning behind quiet quitting
    Telltale signs of a quiet quitter
    Understand employment is a mutually exploitative relationship
    How business owners can deal with quiet quitters
    The problem with mismatched employee expectations
    Why quiet quitting is a leadership problem
    Acceptable reasons for employee termination

    Keys to Creating an Exitable Business (Part 2)

    Will your business succeed after you leave? Can the new owners expect the business to perform at the same level or even better after you exit?

    On today's episode, host Roland Frasier goes through the benefits of having exit-ready structures in your business. To achieve the optimum value from an exit, you need to develop exit-ready structures. Even more importantly, you must understand that being exit ready does not mean you have to be thinking about exiting the business right now. It's just a measure to protect the value of your business for when you decide to sell.
    Value erosion can and does occur at various stages of an exit. Having exit-ready structures helps mitigate the risk and maintain the perceived value of the business.
    Listen in to learn more about the benefits of developing exit-ready structures in your business and create an attractive offering by strengthening its value proposition.
    IN THIS EPISODE, YOU'LL LEARN:
    The benefits of having a business exit strategy in place
    Plan for an exit through a capability assessment
    Ways to structure your business for a potential exit

    Dealing with Haters. Extortion and Threats

    Dealing with Haters. Extortion and Threats

    What would you do to mitigate the threat of an extortion attempt against your business?

    On today's episode, hosts Ryan and Roland go through the dos and don'ts of responding to online trolls, hate speech, and extortion attempts. This comes after a recent extortion attempt where some guy threatened the team with harmful reviews in exchange for access to a program worth thousands of dollars.

But, in most cases, they cannot hurt you. It doesn't matter if the threat includes some truth or not; you're always better off not engaging in their antics.
    Tune in to learn more about extortion attempts and how to stay level-headed when a scammer threatens your brand image and online reputation.
