Here is what this book is not. It is not a get rich quick guide. It doesn't include any hidden secrets for becoming an overnight millionaire. If you are looking to flip businesses, you should probably look elsewhere.
This book is for serious business owners who are ready to work hard and want to build a business right. A reward for putting years of hard work into a business should be having the option to sell it. This book does a great job covering the details of how to lay the foundation from the very beginning.
I like to tell people that they should build the business to one day sell it. It doesn't matter if that is anything more than a pipe-dream right now. The fact is, if you ever want a chance at selling it, you need to be doing things 5 years out, 10 years out, and even 20 years out to help you make the sale and get the best price.
Jack Garson is a lawyer who has a lot of experience working with businesses and moving them through the process of selling. From his vantage point, he has picked up a lot of information about what buyers are looking for, what effects sales price, and what mistakes businesses commonly make that cause problems when its time for an exit.
The book, How to Build a Business and Sell it For Millions, is really two books in one. The first half is all about building your business correctly, and it really is a great primer on the things you need to focus on now to build a business that is structurally sound and will outlast you.Read more ›
For those that either want to start a business or who just started one, this book gives a great blueprint for those things you need to think about NOW, so that you can make sure you do create value. If you build your business without thinking of some of the author's points - I could understand how you would lose out on a ton of $$$ upon a sale.
Overall, the author does a great job with his examples on how things were done properly and some not so. It's written in an easy to understand way but also at a high level so that readers on both ends of the business experience spectrum can take away valuable nuggets of information.
