Walking to Destiny: 11 Actions An Owner MUST Take to Rapidly Grow Value & Unlock Wealth

Walking to Destiny was written to arm business owners and their advisors with the knowledge and understanding needed to recognize their potential, execute growth tactics, and harvest the wealth locked inside a business.

The book is also designed to bridge the gap between advisors and owners to get them on the same page. From an advisor perspective, the Value Acceleration Methodology has become the leading process
for exit planning and is prominently utilized by exit planning advisors across the world. We want to change the outcome for business owners who have invested their lives in their business.

To do that, we need to change the paradigm of how exit planning is perceived by owners. Exit planning is good business strategy. Exit planning is now. With readiness comes success, freedom, and wealth, and providing that roadmap is the purpose of Walking to Destiny.

Book Review:
Walking to Destiny provides a roadmap and concepts which, when adopted, can increase readiness and attractiveness as business owners approach their exit. The author, Chris Snider, continues to deliver keynote speeches, trainings, and workshops surrounding the topics of Master Planning and the Three Legs of the Stool, the Four C’s, the Five Stages of Value Maturity, and Relentless Execution. Snider wrote this book for advisors to business owners. Health insurance professionals often enter the trusted “advisors circle” that exists around many business owners. Over time it is common that working with a business owner has included helping them and their loved ones with various medical needs. In addition, health insurance professionals have also acted as advisor about employee benefits with a specific focus on employee retention, a critical factor for business success.

This book will help:

• Top-tier professional advisors and consultants dedicated to
helping their clients successfully grow and exit their businesses
• Legal, asset management, and accounting firms committed
to successful wealth transfers
• Business owners looking to educate their executives and
staff on how to grow value in the business and think like owners
• Community leaders wanting to educate their local
business owner market on how to successfully transition their businesses
• Industry associations dedicated to preparing their
members for succession

their members on how to perform exit planning services

growth and high market value.
