3X Value Growth™
Kerri built the 3X Value Growth™ system to enable clients to predictably multiply intrinsic enterprise value three-fold in just three years. This approach helps lower middle market companies reduce risk and achieve measurable long term results that demonstrate both sustainability and scalability. Those internal results create opportunities for funding, financing, or liquidity.
Value Multiplier MastermindTM
To extend this program to more owners, Kerri will launch the Value Multiplier MastermindTM in 2022. This will be a 9 week group mastermind with the same materials, scope, and depth as the 3X Value GrowthTM program in a group format.
Adapting to COVID –19 constraints and wanting to help as many owners as possible make the right decision for them, their business, their family, and their finances; Kerri created FastTrack 20/20, the first online value growth program for private and family run businesses. Fasttrack 20/20 is a six-week program for owners to help them decide to sell soon, grow their business for greater value in 3-5 years, or hold on to their business long term.
Fasttrack 20/20 provides leadership lessons, best practices, and generates a preliminary internal value potential for the business. This process will be indispensable for owners and their companies as they recover and consider their future beyond the pandemic.
Owners, if you are ready to increase profitability, optimize operations and streamline systems now, to increase long term value and results, Kerri Salls is the one you want to speak to.
