Maybe it’s time to take a step back and let others step up. Or maybe you’re considering bringing in an investor and ramping up? Or perhaps you’re even thinking of selling your business in the next few years?

Regardless of what you envision for your next chapter, there are four factors that will lead to a happy and lucrative exit from the day-to-day operations of your business. Skip one of the four things and you may regret it, like the 75% of owners who say they regret how they approached their exit after just one year.


John Warrillow, the international bestselling author of Built to Sell and founder of The Value Builder System™, will lead you through a journey of self-discovery which will help you define the second half of your business (and your life).

  • The four factors that lead to a happy and lucrative business exit

  • The “Happy, Rich or Famous?” paradox

  • Five ways to maximize the value of your business now

  • One surprising test to evaluate how much of your ego depends on your company

Join us for this Takin’ Charge Tuesday for a dynamic wake-up call from industry expert Sam Dantzler of Garage Composites. In his session, Sam will talk about the backside of our 2020 success, in terms of both Customer Satisfaction and Customer Retention. For the first time in 8 years, we’ve had a surge of first-time BOATERS. Unfortunately, our industry is having a tough time engaging them post-sale for a variety of reasons. In this session you’ll learn how/why to re-engage them, thus keeping in the buying and boating cycle and retaining them as customers for life!
