Sell Your Business

With Lucas Walker Business Consulting As Your Trusted Advisor

Steps To Sell A Business

1.) Seller Inquiry

You and I schedule a short visit to begin to understand your goals and see if we are a fit to move forward.

Note: It is incredibly important to maintain confidentiality if you are considering selling your business! (If your staff or clients know it can negatively affect your business making it harder to run and sell).

2.) Options Discussion

If you want to move forward, the next step is to have a longer meeting to get more comfortable with each other.

During this meeting, we will outline the path forward so that you are clear on the steps to sell your business.

3.) Perform Business Valuation

The next step is to determine the value of your business.

I will generate a written, fully documented valuation of your business based on the information you provide.

We will agree on a market value to list and sell your business.

4.) Marketing Your Business

I create a 10-20 page Confidential Business Review (CBR) to market your business to vetted prospects.

I will find potential buyers and if they pass the screening process set up a Buyers/Seller meeting.

5.) Negotiate

Once the buyer makes an offer, I will act as a business intermediary to manage the back-and-forth negotiations until an “Offer To Purchase” is signed. The Buyer puts down earnest money which I hold in trust.

The Buyer now performs Due Diligence to verify the details of the deal.

6.) Closing Table

Just like when buying real estate, the deal and details are all agreed upon prior to closing, but until the paperwork is signed, the business has not been sold.

The Buyer And Seller can have their own lawyers present at the closing or I can use lawyer-prepared documents that have stood the test of time to assist in the closing if both parties agree.

Business Guidance To Get You To The Next Level

Each level of business growth has its own unique pain point. Save time, energy, and money by collaborating with an expert who has been there and knows the path forward.

Launch Your Business

Trying to figure out what you need to get a business started legitimately? What kind of structure do you need in place for future success? How much should you be pre-planning versus just doing it?

Grow A Successful Solo Venture

You have all the basic structure in place, but you are realizing being good at your craft isn’t enough to guarantee success. How can you increase your income to stay cash-flow positive without sacrificing your quality of life?

Build And Manage Your Team

Are you ready to start scaling your operation by adding leverage? How do you communicate your vision to other people? How do you maintain your quality when you aren’t the one personally doing the work? How do you keep the added expenses of your team from eating up more profit than they are earning you?

Become A Succesful Absentee Owner

You have a team in place but your hand always has to be steering the ship. How can you get to a place where you can trust your business is operating well and continuing to give your customers quality service without being involved in the day-to-day operations? What would your business need to look like to be ready to sell or pass down to a family member?

Frequently Asked Questions

Like so much of business, how to find an expert to partner with is uncharted territory.

How to get started?

Schedule a 1:1 meeting so we can get to know each other and see if we are a good fit. (Click “schedule” on the top navigation bar and you can book directly onto my appointment calendar)

This 15-minute meeting is at no charge. I just want to learn about what problems are giving you heartburn.

If they are things I can help with we can look at the next steps. If not, no problem and we can go our separate ways, or maybe I can refer you to someone more in line with your needs.

What Then?

Assuming we are a good fit, we will set up an initial consultation to get a better idea of the scope of work required to achieve your goals.

From this scope, we can come to an agreement on the terms to work together.

To deliver my service, I typically meet with clients one hour per week where we work on elements of your business to continually move the needle on your desired goals.

Prices & Fees

The compensation varies based on each engagement. Clients can either hire me for a project (i.e. solving one very specific problem) or for ongoing growth. You will always know the rates that apply to any service before being billed.
