Mature: Elevate your growth potential!

This is your chance, financially speaking, to turn it into a well-oiled machine. During the maturity phase, growth may continue to occur, but the breakneck days of exponential expansion are typically in the past. This slowing down creates a time to fine-tune systems and processes that may have been stretched during the growth years.

Need for an “Exit Strategy” is on the Horizon
Given that you answered that you plan to exit your business in the next 5 to 10 years, it does seem that developing an “exit strategy” should be on your list of priorities in the near future. As you near this change, preparing for your next phase of life is essential. A big payday may be planned. This is the time to attach numbers to your desired lifestyle after this venture is done. Before you make any transactions, evaluate your options with your advisory team. Keep in mind your upcoming income needs and tax liabilities. My team and I are standing by, ready and willing to help you formulate your exit strategy. 

In the meantime — here’s a checklist, to get you started:

  • Establish an autonomous entity for innovation within the company
  • Develop a method to monitor ongoing market trends and competitive risk
  • Carry out market research to spot opportunities for acquisition targets or acquirors
  • Consider what “life after the exit” will look like for the entrepreneur
  • Review trusts and estate plans
  • Develop a succession plan
  • Consider family obligations and goals
  • Scrutinize new ventures with a careful eye
