Seven steps to increasing

your business sale value

In discussion with Mark Fitzgerald-Cooke

Every small business owner will leave their business at some point. Unfortunately, only 5% of small business owners actually have an exit plan that includes; what this looks like financially and when the exit will occur.

Meet Gary & Mark...

After over 25 years in high-growth businesses delivering results at a senior level, Gary knew he could use his skills to help SMEs.

A straight-talking, no-nonsense Yorkshire man, he now helps business owners to have the freedom to choose how, when and where they work through a range of online and in-person programmes.

Having turned around his business and his lifestyle as a result, Gary now runs three successful businesses and it’s this experience he uses to help other entrepreneurs ditch the guilt, start earning what they are worth, and creating the ability to make choices about how they spend their time.

He creates what many hard-working business owners are missing – the freedom to choose.

Gary holds a key role in the Association of Business Mentors in the UK and regularly engages business and university audiences about building the right business to give freedom and choice.
