Started some of the renovation of the transferred website this week, with more to come. Best way is to step this out anyway, given I want to know what works and what doesn’t. I won’t know that if I do it all at once will I? Yes, I do need to double the numbers first off, to make it worth continuing the process, but systematically and consistently is the way to go.

Yet again this week, I spent time with two business owners, both complaining about the situation they’ve found themselves in. One, bought into a franchise that appears to be making it up as they go along. Not a bad thing in some respects given they will at least trial things and are not to set in their ways, yet! Means the employees of the franchisor are working really hard to rein it back in and keep a lid on all that’s being asked. Be interesting to see how this one pans out.

The other is a business owner of over 40 years, where the bum has fallen out of its market. Sad? Yes. The superannuation payout as dreamt? No. Alas, but what’s that we find? Items of significant historical value I hear you cry. Ready to sell to the right bidder. Perfect! Might just realise more than ever thought possible when selling the business as such. Now time to spend cataloguing what is valuable and get ready to go to market. As for the business, if the sale of these items come off as foreseen, then the business can close its doors in 18 months and all will be well with the world. Again, time will tell…

BS30 Online Venue Business
Completed Sellability Score
Not sure this one is going anywhere now… bugger!

BS49 Home Help…
Exclusive Due Diligence has commenced. As always, a few issues raised but none that can’t be sorted out. At least, I hope so!

BS53 Balloons! and all that goes with them…
One unsatisfactory offer touted, confirmation sought. The others are tempted by others… not sure what will happen. Might be a case of door closing too.

BS59 Niche Service Provider in Building Trade
via Sellability Score.
It’s all systems go! Advertisement is ready to fire.  This is a cracker for a white-collar wanting to get out of the office or a trade wanting to get off the tools.

BS60 Advertising and Events agency
(via Sellability Score)
Advertisement on websites. Trial Linkedin campaign commenced but wondering now if the ones chosen are too small. Can’t tell via a profile. Will need to find larger agencies.

BS72 Niche Bookseller and Training Provider
Waiting on finalisation of the IM.

Training provider
Assisting colleague by introducing the perfect buyer for his selling client. However, due to their own growth plans, this has been placed on the back burner. Others are putting their hands up initially but no-one really sticking it out yet.

Health Care Provider
Assisting colleague by introducing the Home Help interested party to their client, now that the authority has been signed. IM has been sent, so awaiting feedback.
