Book Description

If you are a business owner, you have spent countless hours growing your business and probably only dreamed of how you are going to cash out one day, but how? Did you know that on average only 1 in 5 businesses placed on the market for sale, actually sell? This statistic only stands to get worse as the flood of baby boomer business owners consider leaving their businesses. Finding a holistic and unbiased solution is the single most important key to having a successful outcome. Proper planning and preparation are vital to actually getting the most for all of your years of hard work. In “Cashing Out of Your Business , you will find real life examples and advice on the critical steps you need to take now to protect and preserve your largest asset, your business. Did you know years of hard work could vanish in an instant if you do not have an adequate business ownership-transition plan in place? What would happen to your business, your family and your future if you could no longer manage your business tomorrow? Unfortunately, most owners are jolted by a life event and then it may be too late to make necessary changes and preparations.
With over 50 years of combined experience assisting business owners grow achieve and transition out of their businesses, the authors present a non-technical easy to read conversation on how to achieve your last great deal and cash out. Regardless of whether you are planning on leaving your business in the next twelve months, ten years or don’t even desire to leave at all, this information is vital to the continuation of your business and your personal future and security. Some of the key questions addressed in this book are;
• Why you need to act now to grow and protect your business wealth.
• What inadequate tax planning can cost you in your business-transition.
• Why you don’t necessarily have to sell to an outsider to achieve your goals and dreams and what transfer options are available to you.
• What to do to best prepare your business and yourself for a sale or transition.
• Will your business transition provide the cash to fund the life you dream of?

All owners, regardless of business size need to plan for their ownership transitions well in advance. This is particularly important for owners who are very dependent on their businesses for their financial security.
Don't wait for something to rock YOUR world. With proper planning, you will have more control over your future and have a much better chance of achieving your goals and closing YOUR last great deal

Editorial Reviews


The deal of my life would not have been consummated without Jane. She kept me on track, and the deal went through. Cashing Out of Your Business is right on. Thanks to her sage advice, I am now in a corporate heaven focusing on my golf game. --Robert Crosby

The real-life examples in Cashing Out of Your Business are eye-opening reminders that it's not too early to plan. The authors clearly lay down the steps to have a successful outcome--and what may happen if not properly done. They have been a big help in my process toward retirement. --Dave Dalpe

I though every case study in Cashing Out of Your Business was about me and the mistakes I made before I met Kathleen. Every business owner should read this book--now! There is so much to consider, and it delivers the information in an easy-to-read conversational style. --Floyd Salser

5.0 out of 5 stars Really useful info in an easy to read format January 23, 2014
You've owned a successful business and are now ready to either retire or move on. What do you do? Check out this little book, packed full of useful information on how to get the most from your business when you leave.

I own a business and, while not ready to cash out, was interested in this information for the future. The authors did an outstanding job of presenting facts and giving options for almost every scenario out there. The book is filled with stories of success and deals gone wrong. Don't let the small book (only 70 pages) fool you, this would be a huge benefit to someone looking to sell a business. The information would also be extremely helpful for someone just starting out so they already have the necessary measures in place when the time comes to cash out. Would definitely recommend.

I received this book free of charge from News & Experts in exchange for my honest review.
