Increase The Potential Sale Price Of Your Business For Sale – The 2 Basic Steps

1. Make sure your financial records have been kept accurately and in detail. Consider switching to a computerised accounts system, if you have not already done so. Be ready to explain any unusual figures.2. Ensure that all legal documents relating to your business are up to date and accurate. These may include leases, hire-purchase agreements, client and supplier contracts, staff contracts, patents, trademarks etc.3. Target your more obvious weak points and bring them up to par with the rest of your business. This may involve renovating your business premises, expanding your client base, updating equipment, balancing stock levels etc.4. Be honest with your staff – let them know that you’re planning to sell, and that you’ll do your best to ensure that they can continue with the new owners if they wish. At the same time, try and give more responsibility to senior staff members – it’s best if the business doesn’t appear to depend too heavily on your own involvement.5. Prepare detailed information on your business – cover everything, such as day-to-day operations, information on your competition, relevant industry information, research and development issues and a history of your business. The Negotiation ProcessThere are many highly skilled business brokers who specialise in buying and selling businesses. It’s best to select a broker with specific experience in your industry.Negotiating can be stressful, so to make sure that you get the best possible value for your business, keep in mind the following points:1. Be honest, realistic and reasonable when negotiating the sale of your business. We all want to buy low and sell high, but a fair market value is what both sides should aim for.2. Don’t hide anything about your business – make sure that any flaws are brought out into the open right from the start.3. You’ll lose the trust of the buyer by being dishonest. Be positive – focus on the areas of agreement, be friendly, and listen carefully to what the buyer tells you. You may be able to resolve any conflicts before they damage your position.4. Don’t drag out the negotiations – the longer it takes to come to agreement, the more time the buyer has to change his or her mind about the deal.5. Make sure that all agreements are put in writing and signed by both parties.

5 Empowering Tracks From Female Icons To Make You Feel Inspired

Sometimes we all need a little lift. Whether you’ve had a recent knock to your confidence, have been going through stress in your personal or professional life, or have always struggled with your self-esteem, music is an essential tool for lifting your spirits and making you feel better about yourself.

According to a study by Heriot-Watt University, the type of music you listen to not only influences your mood, but also your personality, with indie and rock/heavy metal fans reporting the lowest levels of self-esteem, while fans of jazz, blues, opera, classical, pop, rap and soul all reported high levels of self-confidence.

So if you’re having a ‘down day’, why not boost your spirits by listening to some powerful, uplifting tracks? Here are five perfect confidence boosters.

Britney’s own struggles with her mental health and conservatorship have made her an inspiration for many people across the world.

This classic song is timelessly sensual, and the heavy beats throughout make it impossible not to dance to. A welcome blast of nostalgia, this tune has filled dance floors across the globe with fans old and new.

The video features Britney as a female spy playing the sexy flight attendant, seducing her passenger before she makes her escape on a motorbike and breaks into a high-security facility guarded by a laser security system.
