Many business owners try to determine the price of their business based on how hard they have worked over the years. But the market will tell them that the business value is really what it is worth to a new owner in the future.

As a result, there are many factors to examine – equipment, employees, market position, technology – the list goes on and on.

Business owners should get a business valuation performed by a professional to get a real sense of market value.
