Lakewood Ranch, FL, January 22, 2015 --(PR.com
)-- John Warrillow, author of the best-selling book "Built to Sell: Creating a Business That Can Thrive Without You" and a contributor to Inc.com, will speak to a local audience of business owners on building business value Tuesday, February 3, at noon.
Sponsored by CornerStone Business Solutions of Lakewood Ranch, the presentation, titled after the book, will take place as a webinar on the Internet. CornerStone Business Solutions owner Tom Howard, a local business broker and Certified Value Builder™, will host the presentation and serve as a panelist.
"The ultimate test of the value of your business can be found in a simple question," Howard said: "Would someone want to buy your company?" The presentation will provide proven methodologies to help owners build the value of their business, whether they want to sell now, develop a long-term exit strategy, pass along a valuable asset to their families, or simply increase the value and profitability of their business.
Speaker Warrillow is the creator of the Value Builder System™ and Sellability Score™ and has a new book being released February 5, titled "The Automatic Customer: Creating a Subscription Business in Any Industry." His business columns appear regularly on Inc.com.
"Our mission is to help a million people create sellable companies by 2050," Warrillow said.
The complimentary presentation is open to local business owners. The first 25 registered participants will receive a complimentary copy of either of Warrillow's two books. Every participant is eligible for a free Sellability Score assessment, and 26-page report with insights on how potential buyers might evaluate the business, along with detailed information on eight key attributes of sellable businesses.
The results of the assessment can serve as a blueprint for developing a value-building plan for the business. An analysis of more than 6,000 businesses shows that companies with a Sellability Score of 80 or more (based on a scale of 1 to 100) receive offers that are 71% higher than the average business.
