Why do you need to have a Business Plan?

At some point, every owner leaves their business, voluntarily or otherwise. At the time, business owners want to receive the maximum proceeds from a sale to accomplish personal, financial, and estate planning goals.

Financial Benefits of Legacy Planning

We believe that there are four business principles that should shape a business owner's pre-sale or transfer approach:


Defining personal financial goals is an essential component of evaluating and managing the sale proceeds.


Addressing living standards and spending needs prior to the sale helps to ensure maintenance of one's lifestyle.


Orchestrating trust vehicles to help maximize sale value and fulfill financial goals.


Defining a post-sale investment plan before the sale to help implement strategies at the most opportune time.
