Teaching you how to value your own business
The first step in any journey is to know where you started. If you know your business value today, you know what price to put on it. You are better prepared to improve it over time. We can help by providing a simple estimate or an in-depth analysis of your business value.
The second step to getting the best price for your business is finding the issues affecting your value. In the process of valuing your business we often come across these issues and can help put strategies in place to fix them. The result is a higher selling price in the future.
Sometimes a business owner just needs some advice . It may be a review of a business plan, or advising on an existing valuation. It may involve putting together a plan for raising capital.
We have put together several Educational tools so you can learn how to: I. Value your own business. II. Find the issues affecting your value and put strategies in place to fix them. III. Create a compelling business for sale proposition. These tools include online tutorials or in person workshops.

Business Value will be affected by the changing demographics
Willo Consulting is a boutique firm with a very specific focus. We value businesses. More specifically, we work with small/medium sized business to calculate what their business is worth today and we help identify and implement strategies that can increase this value in the future. The current demographic shift is putting added pressure on those wanting to sell their business. Supply will soon exceed the demand for them. Buyers can be selective and businesses that offer the best value will get the best prices.
