    EP 119: How to Sell when the Business Owner is the #1 Sales Person

    EP 119: How to Sell when the Business Owner is the #1 Sales Person

    One of the primary reasons businesses don't sell is that the business owner is the person with all of the sales relationships. Most buyers have to reduce the value or offer a risk-mitigated structure to get comfortable with the existing owner's role post-acquisition. I often lament about how, as dealmakers, we can address this sooner in the exit planning process.
    Enter ​Hunt Big Sales​' President ​Carajane Moore​. I had been introduced to her practice by several people who raved about work she had done. I asked her if we could visit about exits and I was taken aback that she was regularly addressing this exact challenge with some of her clients...with success!
    The podcast was excellent. Carajane shared tips for both sides of the transaction. For the exiting owner, she talked about when to start preparing, how to do it, and what success looks like. For the buyer, she laid out the due diligence strategy to determine the level of owner risk in the sale process. Lastly, we uncovered invaluable tips for both buyers and sellers in the realm of business transactions. From presenting oneself in a disarming manner to defining clear objectives, the key lies in establishing genuine connections and articulating unique value propositions.

    EP 118: Improvement Tips to Help Make Your Business More Saleable in 2024

    I regularly get asked about how best to prepare a company for sale. The first challenge is time. Most business owners understate how long it takes to get out. The second is what this episode is about - what little things can you do to make your business ready for sale. It takes time, but it is worth it when you enter the marketplace. If listening isn't your thing, the notes I worked on the show are on the website's blog.

    EP 116: Evaluating Company-Specific Risk: Telescopic Observation

    EP 116: Evaluating Company-Specific Risk: Telescopic Observation

    The "Telescopic Observation" provides an insightful overview of a strategic framework designed to enhance the SWOT (Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities, Threats) analysis by offering a more structured approach to examining an organization's internal and external environments. It emphasizes the need for a more focused, inclusive, and systematic methodology to better understand business environments and strategically plan for success. The framework, developed in mid-1999, has been tested across various organizational settings, proving its utility in bringing distant or complex aspects into closer, more analyzable view, akin to a telescope. This process involves a dual-matrix system that functions like a funnel, gathering and filtering information for effective analysis and strategy formulation, highlighting its innovative approach to strategic planning.
