The current market – misconceptions around COVID
There was a lot of unknown and even more speculation about what was going to happen in business immediately after the COVID lockdown. What actually happened caused a lot of surprises.

Getting Sale Ready
To get your business sale ready, my three biggest tips are improving your systems as best as possible so that the business operates without you but also having a strategy in place that the next owner or a new manager can hire the right person as best as you could. Lastly, have your financial data as clear as possible. You’re not selling to your buyer, you’re selling to your buyer’s accountant and other advisors.
