Succession Planning or Selling the Business

Did you know your business is worth ½ of what you think it is?

What if you lose ½ of your company to your business partner or family member?

Is your business at risk? Could this happen to your company? It happens every day. Business owners sacrifice 30 years of their working life simply because they failed to plan ahead. You can prevent all of these problems by creating a succession plan for your business. Idea Firm can assist you in protecting and preparing your business for an eventual transfer of ownership.
