Exit Planning

A Proven Exit Planning Process

With years of experience helping entrepreneurs and small business owners plan their exit strategies, KeyeStrategies has developed the optimal process for creating manageable exits when the time comes to part with your company. Our goal is to help you feel confident about your future while taking up as little of your precious time as possible.

Phase 1: Discover

In this initial phase, you’ll work with KeyeStrategies to assess business- and owner-readiness. We’ll use a variety of tools to gauge where you are and where you’d like to be when the transition is finalized. At KeyeStrategies, we know that the transition process weighs heavily on most business owners’ shoulders. That’s why we have deliverables that will help you develop a clear picture of your future, before the time comes to finalize your decision.

Phase 2: Prepare

During this phase, KeyeStrategies will help you gather the materials and information needed to begin building your nest egg. Excellent preparation with the help of an expert is absolutely crucial to ensuring your ability to maintain comfortable financial stability and that you’re able to continue caring for your family after you’ve exited your business.

Phase 3: Decide

The final phase of our program gives you the opportunity to decide on your next steps. Your anxiety about the transition has been reduced and the stress of maintaining your financial stability has been alleviated, giving you room to make the right choice for yourself, your business, and your family.
