Ask yourself this question: do you know whether you are operating your business in an industry that will give you a capital gain or not? If not, why be preoccupied with Enterprise Value? One of the most powerful drivers of wealth creation in an enterprise is answering that perennial question. Most managers (and owners) manage their business annually, and in between year ends, by the month according to a forecast or budget. Few consider whether the ultimate destination requires them to be harvesting some value each year (an annual), or accumulating value in planning for a capital gain.
So many of you—our Entrepreneur Owner-Manager friends and your expert advisors— have asked us about ways to easily access and immediately use some of our experience as you think about building durable Enterprise Value and a capital gain someday. Here’s a short video illustrating a concept we call the Entrepreneur Life Arc. It will be familiar to our friends who have attended the Bigelow Forum. Hope you enjoy it.
Thatcher Wine grew up in an entrepreneurial household (upstairs from the business in fact). He tried a stint in a large consulting firm before he got fired (just kidding, before he was “called”) and became an founding entrepreneur in the tech sector of a startup that didn’t gain traction. Paid the tuition on that education, then moved to Boulder and slowly, the idea for Juniper Books began to germinate. Juniper is now a leading provider of curated libraries for both residential and institutional customers—some of them with Juniper’s artistic custom jackets. Juniperbooks.com.
