About Think Bigger
Learn how to sell your bookkeeping business or accounting firm with Think Bigger by Dan Steiner, founder of Steiner Business Solutions. “ONE MILLION DOLLARS” is a milestone entrepreneurs and business owners love to see and hear at some point in their professional life, especially written with six zeroes on a bill of sale. Dan Steiner, the founder of Steiner Business Solutions, has achieved this and more by selling off just one division of his accounting business, and he now reveals in his own conversational and easy-mannered way how you too can achieve this, and possibly in less time than you might think.
This brilliant, insightful book lays out how to grow and potentially sell all, or a portion of your business for A LOT of money. The author shares in his own engaging and friendly way how he achieved this, with all the intelligence of an accountant and insight of an entrepreneur. With anecdotes and maxims learned along his own professional journey, the author shares his own successes, mistakes, best practices, and systems to put you on a wildly successful path, whether you are a startup, established, or even a flailing businesses. In this book, the author places a “liquidity event” in your own future, where you sell part or all of your business, thanks to a pre-planned and intelligent exit strategy.
