- Grew too fast

Can you relate to any of these issues? When your focus shifts to creating more business value and becoming exit ready, most of these problems disappear. What causes this shift? You will start to see your business differently. With our advisory approach and proven value acceleration methodology and process, you’ll gain perspective and clarity and unlock your potential.
Being exit ready isn’t about exiting your business now, it’s about understanding what creates value in your business and taking steps to get there.
IGX Value Acceleration Process
Growing too fast, not growing fast enough, working too hard in the daily business, not being able to scale, being unhappy with income, and wanting to exit but not knowing how are common pain points that bring business owners to us.
Our value acceleration process and advisory throughout the process help you understand what’s causing the pain, develop a plan to overcome the pain(s), build business value, and become exit ready. This process and the resulting map that leads to becoming exit-ready help you see your business’s potential and get excited about it again.
Step 1: Discovery
IGX’s value acceleration process establishes a baseline by identifying where you are now, showing future possibilities, and discovering attainable opportunities. Once you know what is possible from the assessment results, it becomes clear where to focus and what to do next. Clarity is powerful.
Step 2: Strategy & Execution
The next step is developing the customized strategy and action plans to move you closer to what is possible. Execution and accountability follow by working in 90-day sprints. Taking a bite-sized approach makes progress achievable and manageable. This cycle of action plan and execution continues.
Step 3: Decision
Throughout the process, we regularly pause to ask if you are ready to consider exiting or if you want to move forward with more strategy and execution work. The choice is yours. Whether you want to exit your business soon or be exit ready for later, IGX guides you through the process.
A strategic, executed value acceleration plan is what separates the businesses that sell for millions of dollars and those that simply close.
Integrated Growth is Important to Becoming Exit Ready
Living the life of your dreams isn’t just about your business. It’s about integrated growth.

Integrated growth helps you proactively plan for your personal, financial, and business goals and increases the probability of reaching the intended destination in all areas of your life. IGX’s framework helps you create an exit-ready business and an integrated growth plan.
