What Really Drives Your Business?

Recently, I witnessed the merger of two businesses. One business was barely cash flow positive, and the other had not even launched yet. While their balance sheets of both businesses had not done anything to impress as of yet, the combined valuation of the two entities was nearly $100M. Why? Because of their off-balance sheet value, their intellectual property, process and people. None of these can be found on the balance sheets, but all drive the value of the business.

Intangible value (off-balance sheet value) can be the single highest driver of value in the business. At some point that off-balance sheet value must become on-balance sheet value. The company must make money, and when you combine the tangible with the intangible, you have a winning combination!

There is an App for that!

I have been having a number of conversations regarding behavior modification recently. Specifically, how to convert online tools into offline action. How can you get an online business tool, like a business planning tool, or an online goal setting program to inspire an entrepreneur or executive to change their behavior? Can an online submission form get a business owner to take consistent action? If your knee jerk reaction is ‘No’, then we think alike. What is the missing link? In my opinion…us!  Accountability in the form of another person is a powerful behavior modifier. We play the role of Chief Back Patter or Chief A** Kicker, whichever is required in order to keep an entrepreneur on track. The medium of coaching and consulting is evolving, and the use of online tools to adjust offline behavior will become the new paradigm of consulting and coaching. We need the right tools (and the best tools) to do our work; and it appears those tools are going online. Coaching and Consulting? There’s an app for that! Stay tuned….
