Let me introduce what I call the G.U.P., my unofficial secret formula for success.
G.U.P. consists of three sets of variables that all of us must discover and use in order to obtain the successful status that represents a successful life – by one's own definition. That includes building a successful business and completing a successful exit from your business to realize your dream. This is the full cycle an entrepreneur goes through. G.U.P. helps you use your internal North Star or road map to get there. Read on to learn how to be successful and realize your dream of financial independence.
“It’s my business, it’s my baby, it’s my identity...but, I am tired, and the business environment is not the same anymore. Isn’t there someone out there who will just buy me out?” You successfully started your business and created a comfortable lifestyle, but there is something you are still not sure about – what’s next? And how do you get there? Many business owners spend years in time and energy, working to build revenue, but fail to capture their business’s value along the way. They wait until “triggers,” including health issues, emotional and physical tolls, boredom, family situations, the need for additional business, tough competition, or economic changes force them into hasty decisions that may cost them. This book illustrates why you should expect a return on investment after the years of sweat equity and stress involved in being a business owner. You will learn step-by-step how to strategically renovate your business foundation, enabling you to position your company and get the $Value$ you deserve.
