Everything starts with evaluating your business. It's a process.
I learned it in the trenches as an Entreprenur, Business Strategist, Coach, and former Business Broker. I'm sharing my personal checklist to get a heartbeat on the business and what it needs.
I'm also sharing my tool box and lessons learned, so you don't need to struggle. First step is to start with a clear big picture view (messy as it may be). Then map it out and get strategic about what you want and when.

Do you have a plan, because you never know. I personally found getting out of business much harder than getting into business, so consider all your options.
Exit is not failure. But if you are not prepared, it could mean you are leaving a lot of money on the table.
You are not going to live forever. WHAT IS THE END GOAL FOR YOUR BUSINESS?
Ideally, you are having this conversation from the day you open your business, and at least 5 years before you want out. It's a natural part of the business lifecycle and it requires you to be organized.
Get your business out of your head. Start planning for SUCCESS today.

Hi! I'm Sara
Mom and rider of ski slopes. Entrepreneur, Business Strategist, Coach, Mentor, Speaker, Thought Leader.
I help small business owners get organized to make informed decisions, raise capital and prepare their business for whatever is "next".
Setting them up for success, asking the right questions, increasing their business value and achieving the freedom they desire.
Ok. I am a BIG Believer in Dream Big and make it happen! I am on a mission to get more entrepreneurs organized and making better choices. It's about success, failure, and everything in-between with eyes wide open and talking about it.
How do you know this isn't just another waste of time offer / sales pitch to "help" - that may not be helpful? ... I was in your shoes, as a burnt out solopreneur wanting to scale and went through an exit instead.
As the founder, Business Growth Strategist and Certified Business and Executive Coach, I have been working with small business owners for over decade. Still a solopreneur, balancing life, my kids, staff, suppliers, and all the other balls in the air.
I get it.
But, it wasn't until I left my first business, went through the exit process for myself and then became a Business Broker (selling other peoples business dreams and their potential), that it really clicked for me and I saw the big picture, with all of the pieces. Good, bad and questionable.
It was eye opening, and in hindsight, had I known, I would have made some very different decisions along the way. But I didn't know what I didn't know, and I believed I was doing it right at the time. Lessons learned.
Ironically, I've heard the same thing from every entrepreneur I have worked with; "if only we had this conversation with you few years ago, I would have made those changes long ago."
Notably, those that I had met early on in their entrepreneurial journey have flourished! I've used this same framework across multiple industries with entrepreneurs at all stages of the business lifecycle. It works! I even guarantee it.
So, this is all about taking stock of your whole business to align your vision, increase the business value, hire the right consultant for the right issue, grow your team, expand operations, dream bigger and to be ready to exit when the time is right.
Be the CEO leader your business needs you to be. FEEL confident in your direction and next steps. Know what you don't know and have a much better idea of which questions to ask, or who you need to ask for help. And don't go it alone. Burnout, depression and isolation are not the way to reach your goals. (been there too!)
