A Guide for extracting full value from your business.

Get Out Alive Books by Eighty20 AdvisorsGet Out Alive! is a guidebook for business owners who recognize that they cannot run their business forever, and wish to optimize their exit process.

It also serves as a calling card for any of the professional advisors serving business owners. The book addresses every aspect of the exit process, from realization of the inevitability of ownership succession, timing of the event, protection of the asset prior to the sale, optimization of the value of the business, tax issues, preparation for sale, selection of a broker, and execution of the sale. All this is covered in 10,000 words so that it can be read in an hour or on a commuter flight.

This is achieved by elimination of distracting anecdotes or extended technical discussions. The aim of the book is to make the reader aware of the issues that will arise and that should be planned for. We give enough information that the owner will be briefed to engage effectively with his/her advisors. The book is a 7 x 9 format and spiral bound to facilitate sharing and presentation of a single page to an advisor or an owner in order to provoke a discussion. From discussion to action – from action to results. Price $14.95 plus $2.50
