Book Site: Fulfilling the Potential of Your Business
Per the book: Creating business value is not easy. The facts are sobering: Out of 27.3m US enterprises, 26.7m are employing less than 20 people and only 5,000 to 10,000 US enterprises are selling out for $10m or more each year. Now not everyone wants to build a business to sell but it would be nice to have the option. It would be nice to know that all your hard work as an entrepreneur is actually building value year after year.
However unless you build your business aware of the perspective of the acquirer, the private equity player, or the investor then there is a danger you are going to be a busy fool. You are potentially going to work really hard on the wrong stuff and you are going to miss huge areas of relevance in building business value. Entrepreneurs are not fulfilling the potential of their businesses.
This book aims to deliver an operational blueprint in 9 parts covering the key areas of your business, to help you transform your vision into a remarkable business.
