  • Minimize current taxes as well as those to be paid upon the transfer of ownership.

  • Resolve business continuity issues in a way that achieves an owner’s financial security and ownership goals regardless of whether an owner lives to see a planned exit or dies before reaching it.

Understanding the Common Perceptions of Exit Planning


When most owners, and advisors hear the term “Exit Planning,” they think about the actual ownership transfer process. They believe that the first Exit Planning step is to hire an investment banker to sell the business, or a CPA and lawyer to draft a sale agreement between themselves and their key employees or children.


These are certainly important steps in the Exit Planning Process, but far from the first ones. In fact, transferring ownership control is usually the last step in the implementation of an Exit Plan and usually occurs after years of planning and plan execution. In fact, the typical Exit Plan takes 5-10 years to implement in order to attain the owner’s exit goals.

Common Obstacles to Exit Planning for Many Business Owners

  • They need to improve the business first.

  • Other issues are more pressing than planning.

  • They have no successor.

  • They aren’t ready to act

We address and eliminate these roadblocks. The first step is listening to you and to begin the process of  Exit Planning by engaging you within a process that is in your best interest. 

Key Questions to Ask Yourself:

  • “What do you think you’d like to do after you exit?”

  • “How do you want people to view your business?”

By asking the right questions and listening to you, we uncover your barrier(s), by doing so, we communicate your interest with your agenda in mind rather than our own initiatives. We believe that we better serve owners by focusing on their current concerns, rather than on a securing an Exit Planning engagement for ourselves. Our client's come first.
