Too many business owners have an inflated view of what their business might be worth or no idea at all! There are a large number of tangible and intangible items which contribute to a market evaluation – and owning the business for a number of years or working very hard over those years are not the most important. In order to plan for growing the business, obtain a loan, or sell the business, it is critical to get the range of market values so that you can make the best-informed decision for you and your business.
