Here’s another review for HARVEST Your Wealth
“Kerri Salls’ new book, Harvest Your Wealth, is a clarion call for owners of small and medium sized privately held businesses. It might have been titled; “Don’t Leave Your Money on the Table When You Sell Your Business!” The author clearly knows her stuff. The book is chock full of lists: things to do, things to avoid, things to think about. Reading the book, I felt like I could have used a “List of the Lists” to help me navigate through the content, because there are so many useful lists of tips and techniques for the exit planner-I counted more than 75 different lists in the 235-page volume. The book has lots of very useful material, and I can imagine business owners dog-earring pages and writing lots of notes in the margins. I found the organizational design to be a bit vague, but that’s a trifling complaint when balanced against the wealth of valuable information that is made available to the reader.
If you are thinking about exiting your business, this is a book that you’ll want to add to your business library.”
Check it out.
Implement the tools and strategies from Harvest Your Wealth and you will live and sleep with peace.
Because you will control the destiny of your business AND your life. The wisdom and knowledge that Kerri Salls shares in this book is worth its weight in gold, literally. It is a must read for any serious entrepreneur.

When was the last time you thought about how to cash out of your business?
Is it a topic you avoid? Do you only think about it when you are at the end of your rope after a really bad day? Is it a black hole you know nothing about?
Or do you include the long-term impact/implications in every decision you make? And tie every short-term decision and strategy to where you want to end up so you can cashout?
HARVEST YOUR WEALTH gives you the foundation for all those decisions in bitesize pieces so you can start planning early, to get out on your terms and on your timeline.
It’s never too early or too late to plan your exit. But you must make a plan and start executing on it now if you intend to cash out of your business to cash in those plans for reinvention (what comes next).

HARVEST YOUR WEALTH is for business owners who need to start thinking about how to sell, scale or pass on a business to successors. It’s not for advisors, transaction experts or buyers and their agents. It’s for you, the business owner who has put their life, spirit and soul into the business.
It’s only when you cash out of your business, that you can begin to cash in on the future of your dreams. To pursue that reinvention, you must have a plan to get out with the maximum value you can achieve for your business.
Client Kerri Salls has just released her book “Harvest Your Wealth: Exit Essentials for Your Business”
Plenty has been written on starting and growing a company but very little has been written on exit strategies and on how to effectively monetize that investment when you want to be able to get out.
What has been written has focused on the financial and legal side of the exit transaction or from the advisor or the buyer perspective.
Harvest Your Wealth is for you the owner/entrepreneur/seller, to give you more control and leverage getting out.
When you start your business – this needs to be on your mind.
You are the business owner. Your goal beyond income is to build your company to produce wealth.
You envision, strategize and execute to achieve the promise you made to your family and yourself when you launched your business….
This Way Out Group LLC announces the release of HARVEST YOUR WEALTH – Exit Essentials for Your Business by exit strategist, author, speaker, and radio host, Kerri Salls to help business owners cash out of their business so they can cash in on their future.
FRAMINGHAM, MA (January 21, 2013) – This Way Out Group (http://thiswayoutgroup.com), the break-out boutique services firm providing comprehensive collaborative exit planning services announced today the release of HARVEST YOUR WEALTH – Exit Essentials for Your Business (This Way Out Press $17.97 on Amazon) by CEO and author, Kerri Salls. HARVEST YOUR WEALTH – Exit Essentials for Your Business educates and prepares business owners to monetize their business on their terms when they plan to get out, instead of simply shuttering the business and walking away. Only when an owner prepares the business for a clean, solid, and profitable exit can they expect to cash out of the business to cash in on their future. Written by expert exit strategist Kerri Salls, HARVEST YOUR WEALTH reveals the secrets the transaction experts want entrepreneurs to know before selling a business, but no one has been telling them until now.
In HARVEST YOUR WEALTH, Salls introduces the 95% of all entrepreneurs and owners who do not have an exit plan for their business to the decisions, choices, options and opportunities they need to know about years before they decide to get out of their business. She advocates for early exits, especially over the next five years for baby boomers.
Salls says, “HARVEST YOUR WEALTH gives the owner/entrepreneur more control and leverage getting out. Plenty has been written on starting and growing a company. Very little has been written on exits, on monetizing that investment to be able to get out. What has been written has focused on the financial and legal side of the exit transaction or from the advisor or the buyer’s perspective.”
Less than 10% of business owners who put their companies up for sale actually get the deal done. (2010 Survey of Brokers and Buyers by MidMarket Capital) “[Exiting small business] owners are preparing for the deal of a lifetime with possibly zero experience.” (MorganStanley SmithBarney publication, 2011) [via Blackbridge Newsletter 2011]
They think they’ll be able to sell when they want for what they want with no lead-time or preparation of the business, the team or the business owner. That’s a diet of hope and promises that will satisfy no one. Because of a lack of pre-planning, 95% of all business owners are leaving up to 50% of the value of their business on the table when they exit.
In this book, Salls focuses on the needs of owners to make their business buyer ready and buyer attractive; on exit planning from the seller’s perspective before the transaction experts, or the buyers come into the picture. The urgency for baby boomers to act now cannot be overstated.
HARVEST YOUR WEALTH provides steps, checklists, assessments, questions and exercises all business owners must consider in order to take control and achieve their goals in the business and beyond. Salls provides the resources, tools and insight to encourage entrepreneurs and business owners to, as she says, “Plan their exit from the outset.”
Salls started her career in the Peace Corps in West Africa and then spent a decade accumulating multi-million dollar corporate achievements before launching her first business in 1988. She has been active in business strategy and exit planning for 40 years.
This Way Out Group LLC [http://thiswayoutgroup.com] has been refining and applying a holistic system to assist business owners since 1999 specifically to help owners transform an income generating business into a wealth-producing machine so they can sell or scale the business on their terms on their timeline.
