Do you have a plan? How many people buy a house without an appraisal? How many people buy a car without checking the Kelly Blue Book or Edmunds? Many business owners think they know what their business is worth, well good luck with that. Without an appraisal it's only a guess, and it's a guess you never prove right or wrong. It's also a guess that can cost you much more than an appraisal. Would you use a "rule of thumb" to buy a house or a car? The answer is of course, "No." A valuation considers your financial performance, your synergies, your competitive environment, and the economic and political climate in which you operate? Get ahead, by planning ahead.
Do you have a plan? It is important to know that you have the right processes, policies, and controls in place to prevent fraud. Do you suspect fraud already?

At what point did you start thinking about the need to secure the future of the firm, customers or patients, and your employees. Do you want to leave a positive legacy, and fund your retirement at the same time, or will your business simply fade away when you depart -- voluntarily or involuntarily? Succession Planning is much more than a simple life insurance policy. It is a complex weave of transferring the owner's hard-earned goodwill to capable management. Get ahead, by planning ahead.
Do you have a plan? Making the right decisions, all the time, is simply impossible. However, making the best decisions can only come from being fully informed.
