Most business owners wait until an outside event forces them to get a valuation. However, a proper valuation is not only for when you want to sell a company. In fact, understanding how much your business is worth today can put you in a better position to achieve your goals tomorrow. You just need a partner to give you context around that valuation and solid guidance on what to do with it.
