Hi, I’m Tom.

 I started Beyond Your Exit with the sole purpose of changing the statistics above for business owners. My goal is to empower owners on what actions are needed to position themselves for a successful transition from their business. The reality is everyone is going to exit their business—it’s just a matter of how and when. Whether you intend to grow your business and keep it or sell your business to retire, our objective is to position you where you can leave your business when you want, for the money you need, and to whomever you choose.

As a fiduciary, I’m legally bound to put your best interests first at all times. And my fee structure helps to keep it that way.

Flat Fee
