Kevin Weir - If it is Hard to Turn The Key, You Will Not Get Top Dollar

Kevin Weir, Action Coach, discusses a common problem of many small businesses - lack of processes and systems that make it hard to transition the business.


Kevin: When you're trying to sell a business, it's a lot harder to sell a business if it isn't a turn-key operation. If somebody wants to walk in and buy a business and all the systems are sitting in the owner's head, that potential buyer is going to place a discount on that business, because most people who are investing in business aren't going to want to just purely operate it on an ongoing basis. A lot of people who are wanting to buy a business want to be able to have some level of ability to let it operate buy itself. The less systems you have in the business, the bigger the discount. So, what we do, is we help them develop and systematize the business such that it can work without them, because our definition of a business is a commercial, profitable enterprise that works without you, the business owner. To the degree it fits that definition is the degree that you're going to have a much more valuable business.

Terry Hawkins - Why Wait to be Great? (L2417)


Terry Hawkins, Founder and CEO of People in Progress Global, has been helping businesses build and use powerful systems, as well as shape workplace cultures, for over 25 years. Terry has been listed as one of the top 60 motivational speakers in the world and is also the author of “Why Wait to be Great? It’s Either Now or Too Late.” Originally finding success in Australia, after moving to the US, she found her old ways weren’t working. This led her to essentially restart from the ground up, and she has since come out the other side with a stronger business and even greater sense of purpose. 

Her passion is making a difference, and in Terry’s interview, she emphasizes the importance of having very clear goals and passions. She dissects the process of mastery and cites routines and well-structured processes as key players in goal achievement. While Terry’s personality helped her business growth in Australia, she found it to be exhausting and not effective in America, which sparked her to reconsider business as a system of processes. Rather than putting people on a pedestal, Terry encourages leaders to put tried and true processes on a pedestal, and let trusted people run the processes. A business may seem highly successful, but Terry’s information may help you break your own perceived glass ceiling and achieve levels you hadn’t previously thought possible.

Elizabeth spent the first phase of her career working directly with business clients, but for the last 15 years or so, she has been dedicated to helping advisor deliver better outcomes to their clients.

In this interview we discuss the answers to these questions:


Are business owners doing more or less planning for the future during the COVID-19 pandemic?

What would you say are the ways that the current situation for owners is the same as it was during the Great Recession, and in what ways are things different today?

A lot of business owners are more busy and more stressed out these days, and if we assume that's true regardless of geography and industry, are you seeing any trends or bright spots that would help a business owner take steps today that move them toward whatever it is they want the future to look like?


BEI has a massive amount of content for both business owners and their advisors available for free at BEI's website, which is ExitPlanning.com.

Business owners can also ask their most trusted advisor for a plan that is powered by BEI's planning platform. If they want to find an advisor who is specially trained in Exit Planning, business owners can go to ExitPlanning.com and use the Find an Advisor tool under Resources. Or, to get started in thinking about the future, business owners can take a look at BEI's most recent book, which is called ExitPlanning: The Definitive Guide. You can go to ExitPlanning.com/definitiveguide (or even to Amazon) and get the book. It comes with online self-assessments and checklists that business owners can use to start to map out their futures.

And for professional advisors, we suggest that they go to ExitPlanning.com and follow the blog, listen to BEI's podcast (it's called Why We Plan) or learn more about BEI's tools and resources for advisors.

Juan Ortega - Your Business Coach Sees Things You Can’t (F1017)


Juan Ortega explains business coaching, why it works, and why your company should consider it. 


One of the things that we've all learned through different research and studies that have been done is that 80% of the chance of us getting our next customer is going to be from a customer that we've already met or serviced at one point. Only 20% of those next sales are coming from people we've never met. Of that 20%, almost 90% of that is coming from referrals, so it might have been someone that I've never met, but it's coming through somebody that I've done business with. So, what I ask my business owners to do is, do a mini-research study in your business. If you find that 80% of your business is coming from your existing clients and referrals, then devote 80% of your resources and allocate the time and money to focus on it. So, it needs to be equivalent to the business that's coming in at the moment.

Hans Sperling - Use Caution When International Buyers Come Calling

Hans Sperling, Attorney - Sperling Law Corporation discusses some of the precautions he helps his clients think through when International Buyers approach them for purchase of the business.


Hans: I mean, I think, even in domestic transaction when you kind of see the money from working a long time to find a good buyer, people want to strike while the iron's hot. A lot of what we do is say, let's slow down a little bit and make sure we do this right. But, with international, as your saying, it's that much more risky. Yeah, they could be trying to get your intellectual property, that's very common, we protect you from that. And the other thing is, if you're manufacturing or you have some technology that might be sensitive, I mean it's not necessarily obvious, it's not necessarily a missile, it could be there's magnets, lasers, sensors, all kinds of things you might not think of as being military sensitive. There's a whole other area of the law that covers that, so that could be an issue. There's also something called a foreign corrupt practices act, which, when you're dealing internationally, you have to be very careful, because in some cultures, they might not look like bribes, but gifts and so are common, and you have to be really careful to stay on the right side of the law, especially US law.
