Secrets to Planning Your Successful Exit Strategy

If the adage is true that knowledge is power (and we think it is)—we can guarantee you will walk away empowered by our May 6th broadcast.

A few weeks ago Ray Pagano and Gary Anderson told a story about a very happy ending to Ray’s exit strategy for his family-business.  But that is not always the case.  Especially not in this economy—-but the picture is not as bleak as you might imagine.

Our guest on Thursday, Mark Dayman of Cap-Val LLC, will share his expertise as we discuss how to develop multiple exit strategy options.  With his guidance, you will learn how to have more control of your exit, will better understand the factors that drive value and price, and will learn how to reduce your risk—all from the perspective of a business valuation expert.

Listen live at 1:00pm on Thursday May 6th–or if you can’t be with us then–you will be able to download the full broadcast  on this site after the show airs.
