Building the value of your company gives you a killer advantage in the game of life. You can choose to sell if you get an outlandish offer or sleep well at night knowing you could sell.
The hallmark of a valuable company is one that runs without you, which means if you can create a business that’s built to sell, you also have the option to hold on to it without the stress of running your company day-to-day.
A valuable business is also a sought-after asset making it more likely that you get an unsolicited offer for your business. This gives you negotiating leverage when you decide to sell.
After analyzing tens of thousands of businesses, we’ve discovered eight factors that drive the value of your business:
Your history of producing revenue and profit combined with the professionalism of your record keeping.
Your likelihood to grow your business in the future and at what rate.
How dependent your business is on any one employee, customer or supplier.
Whether your business is a cash suck or a cash spigot.
The proportion and quality of automatic, annuity-based revenue you collect each month.
How well differentiated your business is from competitors in your industry.
The likelihood that your customers will re-purchase and also refer you.

I love The Value Builder System™ and working with my advisor, it’s been a great experience and has literally transformed the company.”
My Value Builder Advisor helped me increase my re-occurring revenue from 15% of total revenue to 75% of total revenue. All our expenses are now covered by re-occurring revenue.
Before I connected with my Value Builder Advisor, I was working 65+ hours a week trying to run my business…Now I only need to work 5 hours a week and my business is still growing.
As a trained scientist, any tool I use must be proven from all angles. The Value Builder System™ doesn’t lie. It forces you to be honest and then shows you where the opportunities are.
