LIVING THE ENTREPRENEURIAL DREAM
YOU’VE WORKED HARD IN AND ON A BUSINESS YOU’RE JUSTIFIABLY PROUD OF AND ALTHOUGH YOU’RE ONE OF HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS OF SMALL TO MEDIUM ENTERPRISES (SME), ONE THING YOU’RE NOT IS TYPICAL.
You’re driven by all kinds of forces. Leading contenders are:
- passion for your product, service or cause
- desire to change the world (or at least the parts you can influence)
- tenacity to see your business thrive
- determination to provide for your family now and later.
As a family business, you’ve probably sacrificed a lot in time, effort, money and emotion. You know all about late nights, weekends worked, missed holidays and going without. You’ve been through the ups and downs of business cycles, difficult customers, bad debts, staff issues, and the thousand other obstacles that stand between you and your business’s success.
Having overcome all, or most of them, you now find yourself with an established enterprise. You’ve been through the fire and emerged tough and tempered. You’ve covered all the bases. You’re poised for a leap to the next level. What could go wrong?
ARE YOU PREPARED FOR EVERY EVENTUALITY?
NO-ONE CAN PREDICT THE FUTURE. BUT YOU CAN PROTECT YOUR BUSINESS, YOURSELF AND YOUR FAMILY AGAINST SOME OF ITS WORST POSSIBILITIES.
- What would happen in the event that a business partner left voluntarily? Could you effectively pay them out without crippling the business?
- How would the business manage if one of the owners or key personnel became incapacitated with long-term illness or suddenly died? Could you cover the loss in income and resources?
- How would you value the business and negotiate an equitable payout figure in the unlikely event one of the owners exited involuntarily?
- Where would the business be headed if the estate of one of the business owners ended up being divided amongst five family members, how would we manage the impact of this change?
This is where Business Ownership Protection Specialists (BOPS) comes in.
Our reason for being is to bring you certainty in an uncertain world.
How do we do it? By protecting your lifetime of effort against turbulence resulting from unexpected changes in ownership and succession.
