How sellable is your business?

Companies with a Value Builder Score of 80+ received offers valued at 71% higher than the average business, based on an analysis of more than 40,000 businesses.

Value Builder System™

If you’re like a lot of entrepreneurs, you assume your industry and its size will determine the value of your company. While size matters, eight other factors impact the value of your company more than your industry. In fact, after analyzing more than 55,000 businesses, The Value Builder System™ has discovered getting these eight factors right can lead to acquisition offers that are more than twice the industry average. Likewise, we have seen examples of companies getting less than half the industry average multiple because of a weakness in one or more of these eight areas. To see how your company scores, you can complete the Value Builder questionnaire and get a report on how you’re doing in each area.

Does The Value Builder SystemTM Work?

The Value Builder SystemTM is a scientific methodology proven to increase the value of your business.

After analyzing over 40,000 businesses, the average Value Builder Score is 59 out of a possible 100. If we look at the acquisition offers these businesses have received, the average offer is 3.5 times pre-tax profit. The Value Builder users who have improved their score to 90 or greater – by following the system – are receiving offers of 7.1 times pretax profit on average.

I’m So Tired

I’m So Tired

“I’m so tired.” This is our common refrain right now, from CEOs to across the work spectrum. Why is everyone tired? Three things in particular: Zoom fatigue, long hours, and our COVID environment. Fatigue is, unfortunately, our default operating mode right now. The sooner we name the mental drain, the sooner we can address it. How do you combat it, in your life and in your organization?

Want to be a great athlete, I mean business leader?

Want to be a great athlete, I mean business leader?

What do you have in common with a professional athlete? If you’re an effective business leader, there’s actually quite a bit of overlap. Training, coaching, and competitive intelligence determine who is successful both in sports and in industry. From skills development to the role of a coach, business leaders have lessons to learn from athletes. 

2021 Ahead! Are you ready?

2021 Ahead! Are you ready?

COVID is an accelerant. Whatever were the major trends were in your industry at the end of 2019, take them forward ten years, and that is where the industry is now! As we look toward 2021: where are you and where should you be?

COVID continues to accelerate changes in business models

COVID continues to accelerate changes in business models

COVID is changing business behavior forever. CEOs are changing leadership styles, companies are more inwardly focused, and many companies are pivoting to stay afloat. Huge changes are taking place in time scales that previously were unthinkable. However, this work is coming at a cost to employees. There is a huge disconnect between management and employees on how the company is dealing with them. That needs to be addressed.

Are we losing (the best) half of our workers?

Are we losing (the best) half of our workers?

COVID is causing women to leave the workforce at four times the rate of men. This trend has negative consequences for women, businesses, the economy, and the country. Prior to COVID, women accounted for just over 50% of the workforce, but that number has fallen. Fallen employment opportunities and salaries will discourage women from rejoining or entering the workforce. However, they now account for the majority of our undergraduates, law school and medical school graduates. Thus we could lose our best and brightest. We need adjust

The stimulus has ended; what does that mean for the economy?

The CARES Act Stimulus has ended, and the improvement in unemployment is slowing. Two-thirds of the U.S. economy is driven by consumer spending! As aid ends and more people run out of savings and credit, consumption will slow. Slowing consumption affects every sector of the economy. Falling spending will hamper any recovery, and Congress needs to act if you want a better 2021.

Are We At the Top?

Are We At the Top?

The stock market has corrected some, but things are still frothy in the financial world. Unfortunately, when things are frothy, the economic forces of gravity come into play at some point, and the pain ensures. Why do I think things are at the top?

Need to Escape, Flights to Nowhere!

Need to Escape, Flights to Nowhere!

We are struggling in the COVID world of working more hours, with more conference calls, little time to turn off and recharge. However, breaks are more critical as we need downtime from deadlines and stress, and to recharge.

A Different Mindset

A Different Mindset

As someone who didn’t grow up in the U.S., I have a different view of time and certainty. When I arrived, I was always amazed at how people planned for longer and longer events that were way out into the future, but with a certainty that everything would go to plan.
