Financial advisors – you make your living helping others achieve their financial goals, but have you ever wondered what your own business is worth? As professionals who are in the business of helping others plan for the future, it is easy to let our own goals sit on the sidelines. Join Elena Volkova and Albert Hakim, as they help you understand exactly what your business is worth and how to maximize its value for the potential sale, just in case you ever want to do it.

In this workshop, Elena and Albert will teach you:

  • What it means to own a business (incorporated or not);
  • What assets are most valuable to your potential buyers;
  • How to grow and protect your most valuable business assets, like intellectual property, trade secrets and client lists; and
  • How to assign value to your business.

Ready to change the way you treat your business?

With this knowledge, you’ll understand the ins and outs of your business in the same way that you help your clients understand theirs. Because when you get clear about what drives the value of your business in the eyes of other people, you have the incentive to pay attention to THOSE assets and lines of work first and foremost…

And when you pay attention to those assets, the value of your business will keep going up in the eyes of your potential buyers.
