The essential guide to selling your business--and walking away with maximum wealth Nearly every entrepreneur dreams of one day selling their business for big bucks, but far too many aren't aware of exactly what it takes to do so. The sobering truth is that it's very easy for the entrepreneurs who don't know what they're doing to walk away from a sale without the financial freedom they hoped for. In fact, only about 20 percent of businesses for sale will successfully transfer to another owner! In Walk Away Wealthy, Mark Tepper--a leading authority on wealth management and financial planning for entrepreneurs--shows you how to build a strong exit plan, an absolute requirement if you hope to get the full value from a sale. Tepper's twelve secrets debunk myths and deliver practical advice as he walks you through what most people don't know (or refuse to believe) about the process of planning their exit. And although it's best to start planning the exit as early as possible, the book also delivers advice for those who may have waited too long and feel lost in the face of a rapidly approaching sale. Selling the business you worked so hard to build can be a confusing and intimidating proposition. Let Mark Tepper clear away the misconceptions, steer you clear of common mistakes, and help you walk away wealthy!

Why does an entrepreneur struggling through 80 hours a week only make half as much as another working no more than 40? What actions determine whether you end up with a small business pulling in five figures a year or a billion-dollar behemoth blazing a path to market dominance? As an entrepreneur, you're told the secret to success is working hard and fighting your way to the top. But what if this advice came from all the wrong people and places? What if there was more to the success stories you read in magazines, watch on TV or hear on the radio? Uncovering the true secret to success is marketing expert Charles E. Gaudet II's obsession. Gaudet discovered nearly every great organization - whether Apple, Nordstrom, Zappos, FedEx or Disney - follows a stunningly similar formula. And surprisingly, this approach defies the principles followed by most entrepreneurs running businesses today. Gaudet finally reveals why some businesses find growth opportunities in any economic situation and others balance on the edge of failure. His research shows many small business owners seek out success strategies from other small business owners and, for this reason, most remain small. Fortunately, today's advances in technology and media level the playing field, allowing small businesses to compete using a "big-business playbook," even when they don't have a big-business marketing budget. Inside The Predictable Profits Playbook, you'll learn time-tested lessons from leading small business owners and discover how to: Succeed in a down economy Become the preferred provider sought by only the best customers Swipe market share from your competitors Increase margins while growing demand Multiply your prospect-to-sales ratio Boost customer loyalty and build a raving fan base Create predictable and rising profits from one month to the next Become known as a business of excellence The Predictable Profits methodology avoids gimmicks, schemes or stunts - and you won't need to outspend your competitors. Instead, you'll focus on optimizing your existing marketing dollars and delivering the greatest advantages to your customers. Some entrepreneurs want to experience growth and others just wish for it. This book is for the motivated entrepreneur committed to making growth happen."

As exemplified by Apple and Google, maximizing the wealth of organizations involves what Joseph Schumpeter described as “creative destruction.” This occurs when scientific or technological breakthroughs lead to the launch of a radically new product or service at a time when there often is little or no evidence of the existence of an identified market opportunity. The world is currently involved in the third Industrial Revolution and academic research and real-world case studies have validated the fact that the management of technology-driven entrepreneurship is a somewhat different process to that of market-driven entrepreneurship. The existence of these differences generates the perspective that benefit exists in identifying managerial guidelines that can be of assistance in ensuring the success of technological entrepreneurship projects in both start-ups and existing businesses. Hence the aim of this text is to draw upon academic theory and real-world case materials as the basis for defining 86 key managerial guidelines for optimizing the outcome from involvement in technological entrepreneurship.

It's exciting when entrepreneurs hit big financial success! At the same time, they are left with many questions. "What are my next steps?" "Who can I ask for help?" "Am I missing out on valuable information?" They are managing millions of dollars in personal assets, and the professionals in their lives--accountants, attorneys, and investment advisors--are often inexperienced in working with high-net-worth entrepreneurs. Jim Dew has advice on protecting and maximizing wealth after big financial milestones. In Beyond a Million, Dew, a wealth manager, shares his twenty-three years of experience helping entrepreneurs preserve their expanding wealth. He offers answers to important questions regarding taxes, risk-taking, lawsuit protection, investing, and financial team building. In the past, a strategy called "family office" has only been accessible to the ultra-rich. Jim Dew shows elite entrepreneurs how to use these same billionaire strategies in their businesses. This is the entrepreneur's playbook for expanding wealth, freedom and time.

Get the real guidance you need to create and build your first startup company from founders who have been there many times before. The first run printing of The Startup Playbook SOLD OUT! So, we revised, expanded, and improved this second edition, including a new foreword by Brad Feld, author of Venture Deals. We still give our personal, how-to guide for building your startup from the ground up. You’ll find a collection of the major lessons and shortcuts we’ve learned that will shift the odds in your favor. We’re sharing our tips, secrets, and advice in a frank, founder-to-founder discussion with you. We make no bones about our bias. We’re on your side, the founder’s side. While venture capitalists, investors, and accelerators/incubators can add great value in the startup ecosystem, this book isn’t about their points of view. We’ll tell you where our interests as founders diverge from those on the other side of the table—investors, bankers, advisors, board members, and others—and what to do when that happens. The Startup Playbook is not a recipe, it’s not a template, it’s not a list of tasks to do. It’s our insider’s guide to starting a company and running it successfully in those critical early months. Between us, we’ve started over a dozen high-tech software companies and raised over $500 million in investment capital. We’ve acquired over thirty-five companies, had three of our startups go public, sold six of them, and we made billions of dollars for shareholders. We’ve also invested in over eighty startups, advised and mentored over two hundred companies and actively worked with venture capitalists (VCs), incubators, and accelerators to help launch many other new startups. We’ve had plenty of failures, too. And we’ve probably learned more from those than from the successes. We share those lessons as well. The Startup Playbook is full of our advice, guidance, do’s, and don’ts from our years of experience as founders many times. We want to share our hard-earned knowledge with you to make success easier for you to achieve. This book is extraordinarily fresh and exciting. In an accessible, straight talk fashion, this book is a manual, and an inspiration. The Startup Playbook is smart and avoids the "I am so smart" over-writing endemic to the genre. Read this as it is presented. You'll be doing yourself a tremendous favor. - Amazon Reviewer
