How Saleable is Your Business in 2014? How Saleable do you want Your Business 2014? What are you waiting for? GET YOUR SCORE…

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.

Most interesting week!

My past Consulting world is starting to make its presence felt. And it feels OK. When I sold my business 3 years ago, I thought Consulting would be the last place I would consider playing in again. And this would still be the case if I had not been contacted by two separate parties this week about doing a project or two. Both of reasonably considerable size too.

Interesting the timing on this too. The 3-year restraint of trade clause I agreed to abide by ends at the end of June, that is, in two weeks time. Is the Universe providing? Maybe, if you believe in such things. Or is it all serendipitous, who can say. I do find it worthy of observation and consideration nonetheless.

Who knows, these may not go anywhere. However, given they both tie in with my now well-tuned Exit Strategy filter, they could end up being a lot of fun. Looking forward to see what transpires…

BS30 Online Venue Business
Completed Sellability Score
Not sure this one is going anywhere now… bugger! However, I did have a conversation with a chap this week, who assures me he is the one to go in and turn this around. And maybe he is. Just need to introduce him in, once he supplies his snapshot of why he should be considered.

BS49 Home Help…
Due Diligence is now done, with some argy bargy about certain declarations which has resulted in a price revision. Nothing major but relevant nonetheless. Next, contracts!

BS53 Balloons! and all that goes with them…
Sadly this one has stalled. Not sure what else to do…

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. Given how close to end-of-financial-year it is, we’re going to wait a few weeks, get the 2014 numbers done and then go to market.

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. So have sourced larger agencies and will commence campaign this week.

BS72 Niche Bookseller and Training Provider
Finalisation of the IM confirmed. Contact details for key players collected. Courting them commences…

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. 3 private parties have indicated interest. Waiting on vendor to decide if he wants to play with any of them.

Health Care Provider
Assisting colleague by introducing the Home Help interested party to their client, now that the authority has been signed. IM was sent but neither parties were keen on this one.
