In this episode, Gavin talks to Darryl Bates-Brownsword, an expert in working with business owners in order to help them get the most from their life’s work, so that they can exit on their own terms. Darryl discusses the ways in which you can ensure that your business is in prime condition for sale, allowing you to maximise the benefits for you when when the time comes to sell, and why branding might be far more important than you think. KEY TAKEAWAYS You only get to exit a company once, so we must focus on maximising the potential for each sale. With patience and preparation, we allow our life’s work to truly pay off. Not all businesses that go to market actually sell. It’s often assumed that selling a business is easy, but less than 50% of companies that are offered for sale, find an eventual buyer. Employee ownership is often seen as a last resort for owners struggling to sell their business. The strategy is, in fact, remarkably beneficial to both owners and employees, and should be considered long before all other strategies are exhausted. If we can make everyone in the business work to exactly the same process, and we become known for delivering this process to the marketplace itself, then the business becomes better known than the key individuals, making a sale far more attractive. BEST MOMENTS ’The first misconception is that it’s easy to sell a business’ ‘Risk management is the name of the game’ ’Thinking this is going to be easy – big mistake’ ‘What are the things that will add real asset value to your business, that will make it more attractive to a buyer?’ VALUABLE RESOURCES The Business Mastermind Podcast Succession + – https://successionplus.co.uk/about-us/ Darry Bates-Brownsword LInkedIn – https://www.linkedin.com/in/darrylbates-brownsword/?originalSubdomain=uk ABOUT THE HOST Gavin Preston Gavin is an inspirational Speaker, Business Strategist, Business Growth Mentor, Trainer and high-performance Coach.
