HOW TO INCREASE THE VALUE OF YOUR BUSINESS
SIX STEP PROCESS TO BUSINESS OWNER WEALTH BUILDING
STEP 1 – Entity Structure, Infrastructure and Personal Risk Analytics
Is your business a C-Corp, S-Corp, LLC. Partnership or Sole Proprietorship? Should it be? Is all or most of your business debt personally guaranteed? Must it be? This step focuses on structural risk mitigation and value enhancement for the business owner. Establishing a strong business identity that gradually reduces or eliminates the level of personal risk, minimizes taxes and increases a business owners ability to obtain new sources of credit and funding through business credit development is key to building and protecting wealth.
