How to increase the value of your business by 71%

How much did your home increase in value last year?  Depending on where you live, it may have gone up by 5 - 10% or more.

How much did your stock portfolio increase over the last twelve months? By way of a benchmark, The Dow Jones Industrial Average has increased by an average of 7.03% over the last twenty years. Did your portfolio do as well?  

Now consider what portion of your wealth is tied to the stock or housing market, and compare that to the equity you have tied up in your business. If you’re like most owners, the majority of your wealth is tied up in your company. Increasing the value of your largest asset can have a much faster impact on your overall financial picture than a bump in the stock market or the value of your home.

How long would it take your stock portfolio or home to go up by 71%? Years – maybe even decades.
