It really is personal … and not just business.

As a former business owner and leader I tried it all. Business coaches. Books. Homework. Strategic planning toolkits. Whiteboard planning sessions.

But what I discovered was that if anything was going to be different about my professional and business life … I had to change. It had to start with me, who I had become, and how different that was from my ideal life.

That’s what makes my process work. We start with you and your ideal life and then add in of the business planning tools to get your business where you want it to be … in congruence with your ideal life.

Ideal life.

The most important person and the starting point for building a more successful business … either to add value to the business and/or create more profits …. or to prepare your company for sale is … YOU.

Do you have the courage to be different? My success equation in helping businesses be better starts with business owners and leaders who realize that they are missing out on an ideal life.

I will work with you to help you discover what your ideal life is. Once you have a handle on what your ideal life is we can set realistic goals on how to bridge where you are today and what you need to do to get there.

When’s the last time you sat down and figured out the distance between what you hoped your ideal life would be and what you do day-to-day now?

Business Strategy and Transition.

The path to an ideal life for a business owner or leader is discovering what YOU can do to remove the obstacles that are holding the business back and implement strategies to add value to the business, and eventually transition out.

I have developed an entire set of business strategy and transition planning tools and will build a program to suit your needs.

Thinking about selling your business?

If you’re like most business owners, you don’t have time to think getting your business prepared for sale. You are immersed in the daily routine of operations. The business relies on your guidance for success and your attention is focused on this task. Then one day you realize, ‘I’m ready to sell.’

The catalyst for this realization could be any number of things: frustration with the job, mounting stress, or just simple exhaustion. Regardless, you’re now in a position where you need to figure out how to prepare your business for sale. Where are you going to find a good buyer? What if you can’t get the price you want? Do you have a proper succession plan in place? Now you’ve reached this point, you begin to see the difficulty of the task ahead.

Succession Planning can help you increase the value of your business and get it ready for sale.

Are you wondering what’s next for you?

Work is your entire life. The idea of leaving your business & your career makes you uncomfortable. You want to invest more time in your personal life, but you have become accustomed to the structure of work. You can’t imagine living any other way. When you picture your life without work, your future seems empty—but it doesn’t have to be this way. Your future can be full.

Personal Transition Planning can help you create a fulfilling life outside of your career or your business.

Creating a healthy balance between your working life and your personal life isn’t just important for business owners. Any career-focused executive or professional will need to establish this balance at some point in their lives. Here at Business Transitions Plus, we believe that everyone can build lives that are just as meaningful—if not more meaningful— than their careers. All you need is the right guidance.

Why implement Strategic Planning for your company?

Many business owners don’t get why strategic planning is important. They understand that increasing your company’s value is the end goal, but they’re limited by their definition of ‘value.’ What’s important to them are higher profits. They look for results that will be immediately reflected on their business’s balance sheet—but that isn’t always the best way to improve.

By taking a big picture view of an organization, it’s possible to see how different interpretations of this end goal of “higher profits” can lead to problems. Do all your employees have a clear idea of how to reach this objective? Are their strategies for reaching it united or in conflict with each other? There are many ways for lack of direction to impact the success of your business.

Strategic Planning can help you create a clear strategy that is communicated, understood and followed by your entire organization.  

Why is Business Value Planning important?

Every business has hidden value. Working in your own business every day, it’s often hard to see where this value can be discovered. What processes or procedures might be streamlined to reduce waste or inefficiencies? Are there opportunities to use existing products and services in new ways?

Business Value Planning can help you discover your business’s true value and take steps to create it in the future.

Business valuation and creation is an important step in the sale of a business. But it can also be beneficial for simply increasing your business’s profitability long-term. If you’re looking to uncover hidden values in your business, it’s important to bring in an outside perspective. An expert will be able to see inefficiencies more clearly—and quickly highlight areas where value creation can occur.
