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.

Are you 45-55 years of age and realising there is no Job future for you?
Well, not at the level you want at least?

It’s becoming more apparent that once you’ve been retrenched from the high-paying gig, any time after 45, it’s not easy to replace it. Given Tony and Joe want us working until 70, that means there is approx. 20 years of earning you’re not participating in, unless you come up with a better plan.

The answer to that plan, I believe, is to buy a business.

Not only are you not waiting 2 years to make money (which is, on average, how long it takes to make money if you started your own thing) but you are also buying into revenue. Even if you did nothing else but maintain status quo, enabling you to understand the business from the inside, you’re creating revenue and keeping some of it. And if you did that for say 6 months, before you start tinkering with it, you would then be in a position to have locked the revenue in whilst getting ready to increase it with initiatives you’re ready to roll out.

You just can’t do so with any other medium…

So, the concept of the turnaround specialist has been introduced but I’m not so sure how well it’s been received. Regardless, I’ll make the introduction because I do have the all-clear and lets see what pans out.

BS49 Home Help…
Due Diligence – done. Client confirmation – done. Acceptance by Franchisor – done. Contracts now in the hands of lawyers.

BS53 Balloons! and all that goes with them…

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 through sourcing and contacting larger agencies. We’ve had some bites so time to follow up.

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. Vendor has given all-clear to 3 private parties who have indicated interest. IM has been sent.

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. An offer out of nowhere has been received though… curious!
