Business Challenges

Nolan had been selling companies for over 13 years before joining The Value Builder System™ in 2017. However, his expertise focused solely on selling the business, and he did not have a clear methodology to help business owners build their company value. Having no method became a challenge when Nolan continued to meet owners who wanted to sell their company but were not prepared to do so.

With the number of those ‘not-quite-ready-to-sell’ business owners approaching Nolan, he discovered a lost opportunity among the 10+ referrals he had to turn away. To enhance his practice and help more business owners build value, he needed a methodology that would establish him as a Trusted Advisor – one that could help business owners prepare for a lucrative exit.

Why Value Builder?

Nolan joined The Value Builder System™ intending to demonstrate himself as the Trusted Advisor. Nolan’s key to success was leveraging the 13-minute Value Builder assessment, which provides an impartial report of how a business owner prospect is performing on the eight key drivers of company value. He would then leverage the engagement modules to evolve into a business coach who could offer guidance and advice on building company value – whether an owner was looking to sell, or not. Having the credibility of a trusted methodology was critical to the evolution of his practice.

The Value Builder System™ would also help Nolan establish a stream of recurring revenue – a business model that did not exist in his previous practice.


After only two years of incorporating The Value Builder System™ into his practice, Nolan has been able to establish a successful recurring revenue stream equating to more than $60,000 in annual income (or $5,000+ per month) for his business.
Because he’s added The Value Builder System™ to his practice, Nolan has been able to take on 60% more clients. His focus includes both sides of the ledger – those who are ready to sell today and those who are looking to grow. Nolan’s client conversion rate is a staggering 80%.
