The Truth About What Your Business Is Worth
By BARBARA TAYLOR
Click above to read a great article by my friend Barbara Taylor, who writes Transaction, a blog for New York Times.com, and is a partner and co-founder of Synergy Business Services, a full-service business brokerage firm offering exit planning, transaction advisory and intermediary services to privately held companies. Synergy also assists buyers with targeted acquisition searches. Before becoming a business intermediary, Ms. Taylor spent more than a decade in the wireless telecommunications industry in business development and product marketing roles. She was also instrumental in the launching of two dotcom start-ups in Seattle in the late 1990s. Her first entrepreneurial venture was launching and operating a retail espresso micro chain, which she successfully sold. Ms. Taylor received her M.B.A. from the Albers School of Business at Seattle University. She lives in Bentonville, Ark., with her husband/business partner and two sons.
