At Shirlaws we just love the journey: http://www.shirlawsgroup.com
Building a business is a journey.
It unfolds right in front of you. It can take you by surprise,
off in directions you've never dreamt of,
meeting some amazing people along the way and end up with a lifetime of memories…..
Some people do succeed and the sale of the business changes your life forever.
It takes plenty of courage a big dose of confidence and you've got to have the freedom to take risks and be enterprising.
We all start out in business searching for growth and the formula seems fairly simple: more and more staff, then leads to more and more clients..
Those that grow the fastest just appear fearless.
As more growth brings more cash for a nice holiday a new car and even a new home.
Most people think these days will last forever but almost overnight these feelings can change.
One day you love going to work and then you hate it.
All of a sudden the formula is not working and you feel exhausted. The energy, the love and the passion just dies.
Frustration leads to stress. This is definitely not the dream. This is where the real issues could kick in.
So you hit a massive brick wall and you ask yourself, why?
Why did I get into this business in the first place?
And it's at this point you have a strong desire to get out. How do I sell?
This is the worst time to sell and unfortunately it's the time when most people do.
Some do push on.They fund and rebuild.
Growth and profit return and the business reaches maturity.
It's now worth a lot of money and you have made it.
People come to us at all different points in their journey: to grow, to fund or exit their business.
At Shirlaws, we just love the journey.
