You are ready to transition
You want what's best for your amazing team
Let me help you move forward

Safeguarding Your Future while
Prioritizing Your People and Legacy

You have worked incredibly hard over many years to build your business, showing unwavering dedication and commitment. You have taken care of your company with great passion, creating something truly amazing. Now that you're thinking about leaving, it's only fair that you get a plan in place that recognizes the value you've built and takes care of your business and the people who have helped it grow. 

What I look for

People

Owner values employees

 

Owner looking to exit

Strong operational team

Key personnel who will stay on post-sale 

Business

B2B services

Low customer churn

Mission critical offering

Differentiated product or service

Financials

~$2-8M of pre-tax profit

History of profitable growth

Low customer concentration

$3M+ revenue for software businesses

No business will meet ALL of these criteria, and there is no such thing as the perfect business. Most importantly I'm looking to buy a business I can be a good steward of going forward.
