Business Consultation & Valuation

Simple Process, Thorough Assessment

Carrot Seed also helps business owners who are retiring to think about how they want to live in the future so that they can project what their future expenses will be. Other business owners may be transitioning into a new business role as a result of the business transaction and may need guidance around the financial implications of the new role. This future-facing portion of the assessment process is often very helpful to clients because it brings into perspective how the transition will affect the business owner’s professional and personal everyday life.

Business Consultation

Businesses going through a transition often need deeper financial insights to make informed and prudent decisions about their business’s future. Carrot Seed brings over 30 years of financial experience and insights to small and mid-sized business owners who are looking to restructure their business for growth into the future.

Other businesses need to pivot how they operate their business and make those changes intelligently, so the business is sustainable. We’ll do a full assessment of your current financial situation, provide reliable advice and a path for moving forward.

While some businesses are positioning for growth, other business owners realize that the best decision to make is liquidating the business or sell it to an interested party. Whether liquidating or selling a business, numerous financial details need to be considered and worked through to exit business ownership. Carrot Seed helps business owners smoothly transition through the process so they can move to the next chapter of their life.
