You’ve probably looked at plenty of examples of control premiums for the businesses you’ve valued.

If your client said he wanted to transition his business at some point, you would recommend he start thinking about steps he might take to maximize value. Why don’t valuation professionals do this for themselves in their own careers?
Just like your client sees no advantage to reaching out to you until he’s ready to take action, you might think there’s no percentage in talking to a recruiter until you’re ready to make a move. Both of you would be wrong.
It’s easy to get caught in the everyday everyday of being a BV professional. The path you’re on may feel very comfortable. What you wouldn’t know is that it might not lead you where you eventually want to go. Just like your client, you may need to take other steps to increase your own value.
You may have your sights set on an attractive career target. What you don’t necessarily see is what it takes to get there, or hidden downside of reaching that target. At the same time, wouldn’t you want to know you were making smart choices?
If recruiters you talk to can’t give you an informed perspective on career options, or they want to talk only if you want change jobs now, maybe it’s time to talk to us.
