Our 7 Step process creates a blueprint for you that provides you with clarity.  

We collaborate with business owners (& their advisers) whose business is generating over $2,000,000 in revenue and are within 8 years of an exit.  Yes within 8 years; these things take time and you have to prepare in advance.

 Our process helps you stay in control while you continue to have a business and personal life. We do the heavy lifting.


On the day of your transition, will you be absolutely certain that you will be able to sell your company:
• for the amount you want • to the buyer you chose • within your desired time frame?   

 We work collaboratively with internal and external partners to: 

• Advise the owner on strategies to maximize the value of the business pre-sale

 • Conduct tax mitigation planning to maximize net proceeds

 • Ensure owners and their families are personally and financially prepared for the next phase of their lives.    

This is the biggest financial event of your life! Don't you owe it to yourself and all other stakeholders (your family, employees, vendors and clients) to prepare for the next phase in your life? That's what FINISHING BIG is about. Find out how ready your business is by getting your Exit Readiness Assessment. Go to our home page and scroll down and click on the ExitMap logo.
