The day/s before you now
Treat her with love and joy
She is a fine strong person
This precious living day
She is young and old
She is warm and cold
She is here for you
She will hold you well
Make love with her
You’d be a fool to turn away
She is here, she is yours
She is wise, she is hers
She has dawned on you; this epic day
Do not underestimate what she can do
Give thanks for her as you make your way
Give thanks for the power and the kindness
Of this precious living day/s
Top of the festive season to you and yours…
Now that we’ve had a chance to catch a momentary breath, thought it worth sharing with you what we learnt from the GFC as a gauge to how this current situation may play out:
- Beat the Rush! Unfortunately, there will be business failure fallout due to what’s happening but not just yet. Quality business to buy is available now and will be for the continued foreseeable future, or at least until the distressed ones start hitting and clouding the market. Being in front of the Buying pack will work in your favour.
- Buyers continue to look to buy businesses, with our inquiries over the last week the highest they’ve been in some time.
- Buyers do so because it is a good time to seek out opportunistic acquisitions of quality, or looking out for perceived bargains, or even for Income Replacement due to job loss.
- Granted, it may take a little longer to transact, and all your risk-averse advisors will say the time is not right, but the longer time a business is in the market, it will give continued exposure, meaning more Buyers can come forward.
- The market will take time to settle. You as the Buyer therefore may need the Owner to be around longer than first intended. This can be good as it will give some certainty of mutual support in sharing the risk, as well as the possible option of a reduced agreed payment upfront as well.
- A good business it will stand out. A good business will always find a Buyer.
- All of that said — nobody knows how far away waiting for a “better time” will be…

Win Charles’ Books. Hope and Life, my journey as a disabled woman living in a Non-Disabled world. Smile with Dictation
Recently I had the good fortune of being able to have a chat with the very talented Win Kelly Charles on the PODCAST Ask Win!
Unsurprisingly, the conversation got to the Exit part, where I asked what plans she had in place should she decide not to continue with her business and books etc.. She surprised herself by not being able to answer this! She had spent so much time setting up her business over the years, and more recently her Trust, that what should happen to it if she wasn’t around had not entered her mind as something in need of consideration. She assured me she will address this, pronto!

Here’s the question that stopped Kerry Ann Nelson, organiser of the Business Builders Bonanza dead in her tracks: “How can you not, as a Business Owner, know what your Business is Worth at any given time?” So she asked me, as an ex-Business Owner turned Business Value Analyst, Exit Strategist and Broker to Business Owners of Australia, to talk about this very topic as part of the “Sales and Cashflow” topic on August 11.
Building a Business into an Asset (as well as a Cashflow vehicle) may result in it being possibly the largest asset you’ll ever own, if not second after your home. So by NOT considering all angles may result in all the blood, sweat, tears, time and money you’ve invested resulting in close to nothing!
According to recent statistics from the “Centre of Women’s Business Research USA”, only 3% of women-owned businesses reach $1million revenue or more. Highlight women who are also the primary breadwinners, that % is even lower. I am proud to feature in both categories.
Blend this breadth of experience and execution together with having sold my 7-figure business (plus two smaller ones) and subsequently assisting many others to do the same since then, you can see why Kerry Ann sought me out to discuss this further in the context of Sales and Cashflow.
Come on August 11 and learn how establish the true value of your business, how to increase that value with a strategic plan you implement over time, and how to develop an exit strategy that allows you to GET OUT as profitably and seamlessly as possible whenever you are ready.
This is the MUST DO Event for Business Owners with their end game firmly in mind. Register today and we’ll see you here https://rebrand.ly/SALESANDCASHFLOWMEETUP
