If You Want to Earn a Capital Gain Someday: Six Things You Can Do Right Now
Enterprising business owners will find a wealth of useful advice in If You Want to Earn a Capital Gain Someday: Six Things You Can Do Right Now (2015), a new book from the partners of Bigelow LLC (Pete Worrell, Dave Linton, and Rob MacLeod) that has just been published by Blue Tree. This practical, hands-on book is filled with nuggets of information—and recommendations—from veterans of the private transaction market that any private business owner will be able to put to immediate use. Each chapter concludes with a compilation of thoughtful, focusing questions designed to inspire interested Entrepreneur Owner-Managers (EOMs) to discover their own answers.
This work is based on established foundational theory in finance, economics, and positive psychology, coupled with the authors’ years of experience working exclusively with hundreds of seasoned, successful EOMs. It takes an informed, battle-tested look at how the best EOMs shape their enterprises to continue beyond their personal ownership, and then, based on the tracks they’ve left, builds road maps that other future-thinking EOMs can follow. Empathizing with just how challenging it is to be an EOM, the book addresses some power shifts occurring in the private transaction market that allow private business owners to become infinitely more proactive in taking steps to assure the longevity of their businesses through planned management transition and, if desired, ownership transition.
