Franchise brokerage services:

When a business buyer desires a Franchise, as a member of the International Franchise Professionals Group (IFPG) and a Certified Franchise Consultant I can help. My goal is to find the best fit possible for a potential Franchisee to increase the likelihood of their success. So I offer a science-based profiling assessment that does an excellent job of matching Franchisees with Franchises.

Business Value Building:

When an owner is interested in making sure that his or her business is sellable at the best price possible I can offer the Value Builder System™. The Value Builder System™ is a statistically proven methodology designed to improve the value of a privately held business. At the core of the system is The Value Builder Score™, an evaluation system driven by an algorithm that evaluates a business on the eight core value drivers acquirers take into consideration when buying companies. The Value Builder Score™ gives a comprehensive assessment of the "Sellability" of your business, whether you want to sell next year or just to know that you're building a valuable asset for the future.

After analyzing more than 30,000+ businesses, analysts at The Value Builder System™ have discovered that companies with a Value Builder Score of 80+ received offers that are 71% higher than the average-scoring business.

The Value Builder System™ is available exclusively through an experienced and authorized group of advisors, known as Certified Value Builders™, located across the globe.
