Impact Advisors Group (“IAG”) uniquely understands two key metrics that impact most business owners:
1. The value of the business often makes up 80% (or more) of the net worth of the business owner.
2. 100% of business owners will eventually “exit” their business. It will either be voluntarily or involuntarily.
Unfortunately, much of the time, this outcome won’t be on their terms (timeline, net proceeds, process, etc).
Whether the goal is to transfer the business to the next generation, to key employees, or to an external buyer, IAG is committed to equipping & empowering small business owners to improve their readiness to unlock, access, and enjoy the wealth they created in their business.
“We cannot change what we’re not aware of, and once we’re aware, we cannot help but change.”
“If the ladder is not leaning against the right wall, every step we take just gets us to the wrong place faster. “
“If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together.”
