About the Book

A one-of-a-kind book that shows business owners how to prepare their business for sale for the most money and business buyers how to determine if they are getting a fair deal.

This book addresses a looming baby-boomer issue: how to sell or transfer the business they worked so hard to create as retirement age approaches for millions of business owners.

Presents 60 strategic moves and hundreds of tips and ideas that a business owner should implement or risk losing significant value or even their entire company's worth at the time of sale.

This 304-page softcover book has been described by advance readers as "a much needed contribution to the subject of business transfers," "a superb resource for business owners" and "an extremely valuable book that covers virtually everything a business owner needs to know to properly prepare a business for sale."

This book contains hundreds of practical ideas and tips that the reader can immediately put into action. What's more important is that all of this information cannot be found in any other book or in such an easy-to-understand and easy-to-follow format. Mr. Brown's expertise is in taking complex issues and presenting them to the reader in lay person's language.

For the reader who owns a business, "Preparing Your Business For Sale," will help them get ready for the inevitable - one day, whether planned or not, their business will be sold. This business transfer to a family member or sale to a stranger can be a successful transaction if the reader knows what to expect.

"Preparing Your Business For Sale" introduces strategies on how a business owner can prepare their business to maximize its sales value. It includes a simple but powerful business valuation method, a complete treatment of family-owned business succession planning, a guide to selecting professional advisors who will put the owner's interest first and numerous checklists on selecting the most likely buyer, identifying tax consequences and much more.

This book is a "bookstore quality" publication that has not been created as an Internet-only information product. Your satisfaction is guaranteed.
