Book: “Built to Sell- Creating a Business that Can Thrive without You” by John Warrillow
This discussion will be a combination of a book review and a seminar on Exit Strategy. The author is planning to attend our discussion via Skype from Europe. Gary Smith, Attorney with Wishart Norris Henninger & Pittman P.A. is joining us as well. Gary is an Exit Planning expert and a contributing designer of the EvaluSys Exit Planning diagnostic.
Do you want your business to grow and prosper without sacrificing the freedom to live the lifestyle you want? Do you want to build a company that you can cash out and sell one day so you can retire comfortably or go after your next big idea?
In Built to Sell, we discover that these two ideas are not mutually exclusive. The idea that you have to work your fingers to the bone for years to build a sellable company is flawed. In fact, the opposite is true. If you want to sell your business for the maximum amount of money, it needs to be designed to thrive without you – so the next owner can continue to grow and profit from your hard work when you’re gone.
Inside Built to Sell, you’ll find out just that: how to create a fast growing, profitable, scalable business that will give you the flexibility and freedom you became an entrepreneur for in the first place. And how to leverage that automation and profitability into a big cash buy out when you’re ready to move on to your next endeavor.
As a reminder, you don’t have to read the book! The facilitator will share the main principles from the book with the group.
Tom Bixby, CEO and Founder of EvaluSys, will facilitate this stimulating discussion.
For an excerpt of this book, go to:
During this roundtable we'll:
· share our own experiences in this area in our businesses
· share best practices from our own personal experience or from industry thought leaders
· share ideas on how to improve the area within our businesses to fuel growth
Note: We are looking for people to facilitate book discussions, so please don’t hesitate to contact me if there is a book that you’re passionate about and would like to share with the group. We are currently looking to fill the 2013 calendar. The meetings take place the second Friday of every month, so pick a month that suits you for 2013!
