BUSINESS OWNERS

Evaluate. Plan. Execute. Succeed.

BUSINESS OWNERS

Your finances are unique. Your wealth advisor should be unique, as well.

When you own a business, the rules of corporate America don’t apply. Instead, you’re writing your own rulebook in an ever-changing environment. But even so, you’ve learned you simply cannot do everything yourself. You need a team of trusted experts.

Managing your personal finances as you manage your business is where Brightworth’s expertise comes in. Many wealth advisors only look at a fraction of your financial picture: investable assets. We’ve worked with business owners for years and we understand that much of your wealth is invested in your business, not your bank. We can help you develop and execute a personal financial plan that frees you to focus on what you do best: running a successful business.

And when someday you’re ready to prepare to step away from your ownership role, The Business Owner Transition Academy™, a Brightworth subsidiary, is there to help you optimize your business’ value and probability of exiting on the best possible terms and without regret.
