Turning Our Failures into Blessings with Steve Preda
Steve has spent more than 20 years helping business owners prepare their businesses for sale, finding buyers and investors for them, and coaching CEOs and leadership teams to build buyable businesses. Steve has assisted more than 250 companies and business owners in such endeavours and tell the stories of more than 40 of them in his new book: Buyable -- Your Guide to Building a Self-Managing, Fast-Growing and High-Profit Business.
Along the way, Steve also shares how he made his own business buyable after all.
Throughout Steve’s career, he has been fascinated by the
question of how Buyable Businesses are created. Some of Steve’ clients
intuitively got it and built companies others wanted to buy, whereas many
struggled with owning a business that found no willing investors. In several
instances, Steve’s team would find only a single interested buyer to close a
deal, while at other times, more than a hundred bidders were not enough to
finalize a transaction. What made these businesses unbuyable?
Steve’s experiences over the past 20 years, first as a
mergers and acquisitions (M&A) advisor and later as a business coach and a
curious student of management principles, led Steve to discover how any viable
business can be developed into a Buyable Business.
