Has The Value of Your Business Decreased?
If you do not have the same focus, intensity, and passion for managing the day-to-day details of the business as you had when you were growing the business, and your company can answer "yes" to two or more of the questions below, then it is likely that the value of your business has fallen. If your company can answer "yes" to five or more of the following questions, then your company is probably experiencing major difficulty and its value has fallen substantially.



·        Adjusted Profits down by more than 20% over any of the last five years?

·        Gross Margin as a percentage of revenue has decreased by 15% over any of the last five years?

·         Lost money in any recent quarter?
