A presentation for Jim Hitchner’s Valuation Products and Services Wednesday, May 18th, 2022 1:00 – 3:00 PM EDT

Jeff got up from his hospital bed after missing most of tax season and felt better. So good that three days later he canceled the closing on his 7 employee CPA practice. Unfortunately Jeff spent the next tax season in the hospital too and did not have a practice to return to. While this sounds crazy and far fetched it happens all the time.

How do you keep your exit and succession clients from being Jeff?

Presentation Description: Starting and then following through – taking consistent forward moving action is the biggest issue with succession and exit planning. In this presentation we will review seven major pitfalls that reduce business value and at times stop the process altogether. Several of these are common errors made by professionals and several are traps into which clients commonly fall into. Emphasis will be on maximizing value while continuing to take actions to move the process forward. A simple exit plan template will be provided to aid in initial discussions with the client and to prompt them to take the first steps. Click here for more details from a similar presentation.

You will gain a better understanding of what it takes to get your clients to start – and successfully finish – a business or practice exit and succession plan.  If you provide succession planning, would like to add this service, or are just thinking about your own plan, this presentation is for you. This presentation is designed for advisors of smaller businesses with revenues typically under $10 – 20 million.
