I am an ABI (Accredited Business Intermediary) with the ABBA (American Business Broker’s Association) and can guide you through the process

  • How much business is your worth?
  • How do you maintain confidentiality while selling so your customers and employees don’t get spooked and create problems?
  • How can you find buyers for your business?
  • How do you screen those buyers to make sure they are qualified?

“Do It Yourself” is a wonderful way to start. Business is an iterative process requiring nuanced change and adjustments especially early on.

Eventually, you run into the plateau of your abilities. An outside perspective can help get you to your goals.

Have you exhausted the help you can get from books, podcasts, internet searches, advice from friends, feedback from other business owners, and advice from family members?

Is it time to reach out to a trusted advisor who has been there?

Who Is Lucas Walker?

If you are an entrepreneur my story probably sounds a lot like your own.

Waking Up

Growing up, I didn’t even know entrepreneurship was a choice.

After working for other people for a couple of decades, I suddenly woke up to the fact that my employers didn’t care about me beyond my ability to earn them money.

I decided I wanted my dedicated efforts to directly affect MY future, not just benefit someone else. I trusted in my work ethic.. If I was going to fail, at least I would fail on my terms.

But how do you even start a business?

Trying to get answers to my business questions was nearly impossible. Instead, I found bad advice, partial information, and distractions.

The frustration I felt became the concept of what my own business would be.

I would use my special talent for learning, simplifying, and implementing new information to make starting a business easier for others.

They could focus on their craft while I would focus on learning and teaching them the universal concepts of scaling a successful business.

I became the entrepreneurial guide I wished that I would have had when I left the corporate world!

My business was started!

In 2016 I started my consultancy, learning as I went.

I focused on practical solutions that matched the psychology of the business owner taking into account what they actually WOULD do, not just theoretical “best practices.”

(If my assistance didn’t help they wouldn’t be able to afford to keep me on as a trusted advisor for long! There wasn’t any room for error. Everything HAD to work.)

At first, I was only a few steps ahead of them on their journey.

Between consultations, I would voraciously learn so that by the next time we met I would have additional helpful information at my fingertips to solve their specific problems. I felt like Indiana Jones running in front of the boulder, just barely staying ahead of my client’s needs.

How Can I Help?

Now I have helped over 100 business owners transform their dreams into reality while continually learning myself.

I have noticed similarities in the obstacles these entrepreneurs face and my experience across a wide range of businesses has become a major asset for helping my clients solve their problems.

I demystify complex business information into easy-to-digest concepts. An enlightened owner can see the punches coming!

Clients tend to exclaim things like, “My business is fun again!” and “I don’t feel like my business runs me anymore, I feel like I run my business!”

And nothing could make me happier!

I love the work I do helping other motivated entrepreneurs craft their dream lives.
