We make it easy for you to say Hello to your perfect Exit.
1. Exit Consult
Your exit journey begins with a free exit consultation. I know you’re busy, so I promise to pack as much value into our 15-minute call as possible.
I’ve started and built over a dozen businesses in my 27-year career, 8 of which were successful enough for me to sell to someone else when I was ready to move on to my next venture. Since my last exit about 6 years ago, I’ve helped dozens of other Founders and CEO’s exit. I’ve evaluated hundreds of businesses, and talked to thousands of Founders and CEO’s.
I encourage you to take advantage of my rich experience both as an exit advisor, and more importantly, as a Founder and CEO of my own successful ventures in varied fields (subscription services, membership sites, publishing, software development, consulting and SaaS).
Next, we gather some information about your business and give you a free, professional valuation. We do an in-depth analysis of your business to provide you with the most accurate valuation we can. At this point, you’ll understand what an exit would look like to a strategic and a financial buyer. And be able to make an informed decision about whether you want to exit now or in the future. Either way, you’ll know what your business is worth.
3. Exit Plan
Armed with the knowledge of what your business is worth, we can make an exit plan. Does the valuation excite you? If so, then we can go straight to market. If not, do we need to look at a strategic exit? Or maybe put a plan in place to exit 6 – 24 months from now after executing growth strategies and increasing your exit score. We’ll explore all of this together and create your exit plan.
4. Hello Exit
Finally, when you’re ready to exit, we get to work running an end-to-end sales process for you. This is a 12-step process (with a multitude of sub-steps) that takes your business from preparing the marketing package all the way through to cash in your bank account. Collectively, my team has over 100 years of combined experience on over 150 transactions and billions in EV. You’ll benefit from a process that’s been refined to a science. We take care of everything and ensure your exit goes as smoothly as possible.
Let’s hop on a quick call to discuss the timing and prospects of an exit based on your goals and the current state of your business. Schedule your free exit consultation today.
You're guaranteed to come away from the call with:
Clarity about your business
Knowledge of the landscape
A high-level exit plan
A rough valuation
Specific next steps
What our clients say
I worked with Dustin [from Hello Exit] for the sale of a business and everything went smoothly. He was very hands-on and provided a lot of guidance throughout every part of the process. He took the time to get to know my business well and was able to communicate our operation effectively to potential buyers. The sale was a success and I couldn’t have done it without him.
Dustin [from Hello Exit] was great working with me to help sell my software company. He made everything clear, was patient, never over pressured me, but kept a strong sense of urgency. I would recommend him to anyone looking to sell their business and plan on working with him again in any capacity that I can.
What can I say other than Dustin [from Hello Exit] delivered on everything he promised… and then some. At first, I didn’t believe him when he said he would sell my agency in a few months. But he was so passionate about working together, a part of me believed he would deliver. And he did. We had 3 offers in 30 days and went under contract with the highest offer. In 3 months later we closed on the sale at the price he evaluated us on. During the entire process, his knowledge and experience helped immensely. Any time there was confusion or a hurdle that myself or the buyer had, Dustin and his team stepped in and smoothed every over. Selling a business is one of the most invigorating yet stressful experience I’ve ever went through and I’m so grateful that I picked the right broker to help me through it. I’d use him again in a heartbeat.
