Business owners have the vast majority of their wealth invested in their business. It is critical that you know the value of your business. This is even more important when business owners are 3 to 4 years from retiring. Knowing the value of your business is the first step to growing your business value. Then you can get small business coach training from Alan or if you are a manufacturer, from the SCMEP. Start early to work on your business; don’t wait until some event forces you to sell when the value is not there.” Chuck, CEO, Manufacturer Consulting Organization

The primary thing that we were looking for was to maintain our employees’ jobs. This was important since my father, who was the founder of the business passed away 15 months ago. Our overall goal was to make this company something that would’ve been respectable for my dad. I cannot say that was not a little nerve-racking for all of us. But everything went extremely well. We feel like Empire performs one of the best brokerage and coaching services you can find in this area.” Rusty, President, Textile Distribution Co
