Plan / lay the foundation

Before you can take off and grow you need to lay a solid foundation. That means operating under the right business legal structure, having a proper accounting and bookkeeping system, and establishing consistent branding. The proper legal setup can protect you. Without a proper accounting system you will never know where you are financially. Active Business Partners specializes in foundation building even if you have been in business for awhile it may be time to check your foundation.    


Growth is all about attracting and keeping “profitable” customers. In today’s world that means having an online presence and engaging in continuous online marketing. Because there is so much information about online marketing it can be very confusing. Keep in mind one size does not fit all and what is best for your business will depend on your specific goals. Active Business Partners can help you determine where your marketing will have the most impact.    

Sell / transition

At some point you will be ready to sell your business or transition to a different operating model. Just like the other steps, proper planning  is essential. Creating value in your business over time will have the most financial impact when you are ready to sell. Timing is key and many business owners wait too long to sell. Once you start thinking about selling it is probably time. Active Business Brokers is part of Active Business Partners and their focus is to get your business sold fast.

First, we perform a complete business analysis covering 18 key components. The results will determine where your business stands and where your business has the potential to go.    


Our coaches guide you through a proven process. You will be able to make some steps on your own and others may require expert help. Your coach can help you choose an expert consultant if needed.
