Gary Abyad

Business owners often start their business with a vision of personal and business success. Then the day-to-day realities of running their business take over and they lose track of how their business should be aligned with achieving their personal vision of success.  If you are a business owner, ask yourself the following questions:

  • Are you ready to take your business to an entirely new level?
  • Who’s in control – you or your business?
  • How are you at balancing your business and personal lives?
  • Do you need help seeing the opportunities available to you?
  • Do you feel like you’re fighting fires all alone?
  • Where do you turn to for the truth about your business?

Business Valuation

Knowing what an outside party would be willing to pay for a business is no easy task. Business owners typically find it difficult to gauge their business value. Whether you’ve recently reached a new business plateau or you are planning for retirement it’s important to understand what your business is worth. Contact Us

Business Planning

In order to accomplish your business and life goals you will need a plan. Whether you need a proforma, business plan or a way out of debt, LBA can help you. If you need a detailed plan for capital procurement or simple peace of mind in knowing what do to next, we would love to discuss your needs in greater detail. Contact Us

Business Buy/Sell

Preparing a business to buy another business or to be sold are two totally different things. There are many important steps to take, and they can take up to 24 months, that will maximize the value of your business or make it attractive to financiers to fund your acquisition. If you’re preparing to buy or sell contact Gary to learn more. Contact Us

Capital Acquisition

We’ve all heard the old adage, ‘It takes money to make money.’ Many times business owners have big dreams about where to take their vision next but are short on the capital to make it happen. Let LBA’s extensive network go to work for you to find the funding for your next big idea. Contact Us

I regularly meet with distinguished business owners in the metro area. Let’s schedule a meeting and see how we can help one another.
