Business owners and individuals alike have been well acquainted with the need for a Back-up plan in these times! Our guest for this #PoisedforExit episode is Cindy Reid-Shelton, partner, co-founder and adviser with the Ready For Next brand of companies. Cindy has been advising business owners and other advisers for 30 years. She’s an expert on planning for contingencies and I had the honor today of picking her brain on the topic.
As owners, we can’t predict when a major disruption will occur. We know these things happen but we’re not always prepared for what comes next when the ‘fit hits the shan’ as I like to say. Cindy gave us some great advice on how to methodically be prepared when disaster might strike.

Julie Keyes, a life-time entrepreneur and founder of KeyeStrategies, understands what keeps an owner up at night and the balancing act required to work both ‘in’ and ‘on’ the business. The firm’s mission is to help business owners increase enterprise value and prepare for a future exit.
Julie believes in providing outside perspective and mentoring, which made all the difference for her while spending years growing and improving her companies before selling and becoming a business adviser in 2011.
