This presents a few advantages over the simple buyout. First, with more buyers, a greater portion of the purchase price may be provided by the buyers directly. Second, more financial stakeholders increases their overall commitment to its success. Third, more committed buyers means safety of seller…See More

A Case for Seller Financing

A management buyout is the most common exit plan for small business owners. Most want to sell to a third-party, but only one in five actually succeed. Management buy-outs will almost always have to be financed somehow and traditional owner financing will be subordinate to all other financing. Why not consider financing the whole deal if you can?

Don't sell your business. Convert it.

Preserve your legacy. Get fair market value. The process is non-adversarial and collaborative. Convert your business to a worker cooperativeSee More

Employee Owned Companies Perform Better

It makes sense that employee owned companies would perform better, but there was no real proof - until now. The National Center for Employee Ownership (NCEO) created the Employee Ownership Index on the Motif.com trading platform. The Index beats the S&P500 decisively.

Artists Cooperative Not Just for Artists

This artists' cooperative has been around since 1988. It makes perfect sense for a group of artists to share the task of marketing their art cooperatively.Even better, the concept can be implemented by many other solopreneurs. Independence is the number one motivation for becoming self-employed. By marketing your products or services cooperatively, you can share the cost and still maintain your independence.…See More

Relationships Matter

This week, I attended a resource meeting at the Stonebridge Country Club. Not once, but twice, I found myself listening to people explaining to other people what worker cooperatives are so I didn't have to. You can't buy this stuff for money. This is what happens when you show up consistently, making connections and making friends.My job is to explain something that is unfamiliar to most people. When people begin to do my job for me, I think I have reached a milestone. It didn't happen because…See More

The Emotional Retirement

You may think that your biggest concern when you want to retire is having enough money for you and your family to live a decent lifestyle. That is of course important, but have you thought about what you will be doing for the next 40 years or so? For some of us, our identity is totally tied to what we do as business owners or in our jobs. Will we still have meaning and purpose when that changes? What about friends? If they are still working, will they still have time to talk to us? Have you…See More
