Unlike most programs, I can almost guarantee you will not be satisfied with your result. Historically, the value of a business is almost always significantly less than an owner perceives, but that doesn’t really matter because there really are only three outcomes from this exercise in clarity:
Either (1) You are Happy – “All systems go, full steam ahead.”
You are (2) Unhappy to possibly even Angry – “This can’t be… I need to dig in to understand why this is off so much”
Or you are (3) Freaked Out – “This is FUBAR! – What happened? What the heck do we do now? How do we fix this? But… But… But…”
Yes, your situation might be UGLY — I've certainly been there. We lost millions of dollars because we did not know what we did not know. Believe it or not, this is actually a gift... wouldn’t you rather know now and have time to face it and fix it? I know I would have!
