Value Realized

Why do you own a business?  At Benchmark Business Group we believe in, "Value Realized."  Owning a business should allow you the day to day freedom to live the life you desire.  In the begining that might mean eliminating frustrations from your business.  As your business grows it means providing you with financial freedom and freedom of time to pursue passions outside of business.  Then as your business matures it means being able to sell your business at maximum value so that your investment of time and money pays off.  Below are a collection of articles on "Value Realized" from our weekly Business Owner Insights.

Are You Protected?

Imagine for a moment that your biggest client wants to double, even triple, the amount of business they do with you. Your first reaction may be one of excitement. Or, maybe you have some concerns about fulfilling the order. But the factor most business owners don’t consider is the dependency...

When Life Happens

The fact is, life happens and you can’t always control when you might need time away from your business. Some events are exciting and happy such as extended time off to meet your first grandchild or a chance to volunteer overseas for a few weeks. Other events are trying times...

It's Time

Not having time to focus on change is a reality for most small business owners, but it's also something you can move past. All we have is time. It's how we choose to use our time that matters. Granted, this is easier typed than implemented, but if you truly want different results in your business then you have to change the way you spend your time.

Built to Sell is Built to Own

If you've followed along this month you know that we've focused on knowing how to increase the value of your business while you own it and when you're ready to sell.  We often encounter business owners that are uneasy talking about their eventual exit plan.  Some owners think it's too far away and they don't need to worry about it now.  Others want, but seldom have, a clear plan to transition the business to their children or employees.  And some plan to work up until the end (this one is just scary).

Are You Ready?

One of the most common remarks we hear from business owners here at Benchmark Business Group is, "I wish I would have done this sooner." The reality is, there is no perfect time to start redesigning your business. In fact, achieving "Value Realized" isn't a one-time occurrence. Rather, it is a way of doing business that once you start will pay dividends, today AND when you're ready to exit your business. The best time to start is now.

This week we're challenging you to think about double vision. Running a business isn't easy. You already have a lot on your plate and we're asking you to find a way to redesign your business. This requires you to have double vision.
