Did you know that 70% of owner-managed businesses are planning to rely on their business to fund their retirement? And, that just 2% of business owners know their value? This means that 7 out of 10 listeners to this show are planning to use their business as retirement and most have no idea what their business value is and that is not good. That’s why I am excited to have our guest today.
Our guest today is Christine Nicholson, who is a professional business mentor. She recently won the prestigious business mentor of the year award and is the author of 4 books, including her most recent book, “Sell It: How to Sell Your Business for a Richer Happier Future.” Along her journey, she has worked for 2 royal families, run a zoo, rescued a charity, and dug up the biggest unexploded WW2 bomb found in the UK!
Her interview is jam-packed with practical suggestions you can implement immediately into your business. You are going to want to listen all the way through this one.

ABOUT OUR GUEST:
I am Christine Nicholson, award-winning Professional Business Mentor, author and speaker. Working with +£2m turnover business founders who still work in the day to day management of their technology, engineering or product services businesses. I am proud that my clients have made me UK Business Mentor of the Year 2020. I was a finalist in the National Entrepreneur Awards 2017 – and my client actually won the award – and I’ve appeared on BBC talking about business! I have received the highest Professional Accreditation as a Business Mentor from the Association of Business Mentors and I am a Court Assistant and Freeman the Company of Entrepreneurs of the City of London. I’ve been helping businesses for over 30 years – experiencing success and failures, making mistakes along the way and discovering how to avoid them. I built my first business from £0 to £4.5m t/o in less than 15 months. I then helped a client rescue their high-tech engineering company from bankruptcy to an 8-figure exit in 18 months. Along the way I’ve worked with every type of business from software companies to taking over the running of a zoo. Walking in the founder’s shoes and living to tell the tale enables me to help other business owners become the heroes in their businesses. My clients have always increased turnover, profitability and cash – they’ve made millions and saved themselves thousands in the process. Better businesses lead to a better world not just for now but for our future. Currently, over 50% of businesses do not get sold, leaving business owners closing their doors on a lifetime of work – making just 1% difference to that number could have a huge positive impact on those businesses, communities and society as a whole.
