Welcome to The ABWA Oceanside Charter Chapter

July 26, 2016

Guest Speaker - Mr. Paul Forsberg

No One Plans to Fail, But Almost Everyone Fails to Plan Their Business Exit Strategy

If you’re like most business owners, you got into business because you thought it would give you:the freedom to do what you want, the opportunity to make the kind of money you deserve, and the ability to eventually retire on the fruits of your labor.

Unfortunately, the sad truth is, only 4 out of 100 businesses are ever sold at the asking price, 16 out of 100 are sold at a 30%-50% discount, and an astonishing 80 out of 100 go out of business in liquidation sale. Dreams shattered, fortunes disintegrated, jobs lost and lives ruined.  It doesn't have to be that way!  As the owner of a business brokerage and consulting company, Paul Forsberg helps business owners come up with a realistic business exit strategy so they can sell their business properly and profitably.
With 35 years of experience buying, building and selling businesses, Paul has a wealth of knowledge that he will share in his presentation, including:
  • The 5 fundamental elements of every successful business, how you can apply them to your own business and make it more profitable.
  • The 8 scientifically proven value adding activities you can begin using immediately to increase the value of your business without increasing sales, or working any harder than you already do.
  • The critical importance of developing a business exit strategy so you can sleep better at night knowing that if any unfortunate circumstances might pop-up, you can get out quickly and profitably.
Please join us on Tuesday, July 28 for Paul's insightful presentation!

     As a small child, I would often play with the neighborhood kids and have fun. Back then, life seemed to have no worries. We would often play in the woods and visit an area on top of the hill behind my home where the land had been cleared and apple trees had been planted neatly in horizontal rows. I clearly remember the border of trees that surrounded the patch of land, almost as if it was there for our pleasure. To us, it was truly a magical place, where we could lie on the grass for hours staring into the sky, watching cloud formations and creating dreams of our future. We were happy...Read more
