BUSINESS OWNERS: CREATE YOUR OWN GOLDEN PARACHUTES!
Don't let planning for the day you leave your business overwhelm you. You already have the tools to take control of your Exit Planning and to put dollars in your pocket. This book will show you how to use those tools and how to save time and money as you prepare to transfer your business.
Using real life case studies and progressive checklists, author and attorney John Brown shows you how to:
- Create and preserve value within your business
- Transfer ownership for maximum profit --no matter to whom you plan to sell.
- Integrate your personal, financial and estate planning goals with your business planning goals to maximize profit.
Whether you plan to transfer your business to a key employee, a family member or a third party, you need to plan now to make that transfer profitably.
The Completely Revised How To Run Your Business So You Can Leave It In Style, shows business owners how to undertake the Exit Planning process so necessary to a successful sale. When conducted properly, the Exit Planning process takes the owner from business ownership to financial freedom.
Responding to the needs of middle market business owners, John Brown completely revised the book in 1997 with the assistance of Joseph Durnford who authored several new chapters on Valuation and Business Sales.

Reviews from Readers
“Since finishing the book, I have taken many of the steps Brown & Durnford suggest. Already, I am more successful in reaching my profitability goals but I am also well on the way to doubling the amount of cash I can expect to receive from a potential buyer of my business. I am now aware of who those buyers are and that some of them are currently working for me. . . I recommend this book to every business owner. It is one investment in your business, your retirement and your family’s well-being that you cannot afford to overlook.”
-David Visger Ross Office System Supply, Inc. Tampa, FL
“I thought your other book was excellent, but this one is really, really great! Thank you so much for it. It seems so complete. If one ever should decide to make a transition and dispose of their company, this still would be a great management book--and not in the traditional sense--including such things as phantom stock plans, stock appreciate rights plans, etc. I will personally use it a lot.”
-Arthur R. Bauer, President, American Media Incorporated
"This is a book that will help those of us who are figuratively trying to put out fires while giving little regard to our futures. If you are starting a business, thinking of bringing in family members or loyal employees, or looking for a way to bow out gracefully: Get this book, read this book and act on the advice."
-The Denver Post
"The book is well written, easy to follow, and virtually free of technical jargon, but it is not a volume you will breeze through in a couple of hours. There is a lot of information to be absorbed and the reader should be prepared to underline, take notes or somehow mark pages to refer to as they develop their own personal plans of action."
