Announcing Green Exit University:
Improve Your Odds for a Greener Exit
We are pleased to announce the launch of our new program Green Exit University.
If you have been thinking about exit planning, but don’t know where to start or have been worried about the cost of bringing in professionals to assist you in the process, Green Exit University may be just the answer for you.
Surveys show that nearly all Green Industry business owners have objectives for what they would like to do after they retire and/or sell their businesses. However, less than 40% have an exit strategy and that less than 15% have an exit plan. Experience tells us that those without a strategy and a plan are unlikely to achieve their objectives of being able to exit their business on their timetable and to enter the next phase of their lives financially stable. Improving those odds is what exit planning is all about and Green Exit University is a new, cost-effective approach to developing an exit plan for your business.
Green Exit University is THE opportunity for Green Industry business owners to build their knowledge about the exit planning process, including how to improve and preserve the value of their businesses AND at the same time develop your own customized exit plan. Green Exit University’s program includes a combination of text books aimed specifically at Green Industry business owners (Green Exit and the brand new Green Exit Workbook), along with fourteen internet video sessions, unlimited email personal consultation and two hours of telephone consulting, all at a very affordable cost.
Enroll now while there is a very special discount opportunity for the first business owners to enroll in this new program. Classes officially begin July 1, 2013, but will be available by June 15 for early enrollees. Enroll now to take advantage of special pricing for the first 20 participants.

We are also conducting a webinar on June 6, 2013 at 1:00 pm EDT to further introduce Green Exit University and to allow participants to sample actual Green Exit University content.Click here to register.
|Do You Understand the Value of Your Business?
Understanding the Value of Your Business is an important step in the Exit Planning Process. Most business owners do not have a clear idea of the value of their business or understand the important factors that drive that value. Understanding the value of your business will help you plan for the future and will also allow you as a business owner to take constructive steps to improve that value over time.
The Principium Group offers a cost-effective approach we call the Market Value Assessment. The Market Value Assessment provides a valuation for your business based on established methods and industry conditions for planning purposes. It also will specifically identify important factors that affect the value of your particular business.
