Within the Marketplace, Business Owners are Starting to Pay Attention
Business Planning Advisor, Bob O’Hara of Exit Planning EDU Attends National Exit Planning for Business Owners Conference
By: Exit Planning EDU O'Hara & Company
The annual conference, hosted by the Business Enterprise Institute, Inc. is the premier member education and networking event and this year was the most attended conference yet by Professional Advisors addressing the importance of business independence planning. The reasoning; in a very short period of time, over 5 million baby boomer business owners will be looking to become independent from their businesses.
Bob O’Hara, a premier Certified Exit Planner in the country (1 of 2 in Massachusetts), was invited to attend as a top expert in his field, sharing his up-to date knowledge along with his twenty plus years of experience in working with business owners.
Addressing the importance of business independence planning, O’Hara noted, “Most Business Owners in their 60s are now thinking about their future and the future of their business. Business Independence Planning/Succession Planning should start at least 5 years ahead of time, and business owners need to start viewing their business as an outside investor/buyer would by asking the question: How does this business succeed without its current ownership?”
