Business Transition Academy (BTA) is pleased to announce that it has received a Gold Company of the Year in Small Business and Professional Services Award from the 2021 American Business Awards. Here are just a few highlights of the judges’ comments about Business Transition Academy, the leading provider of comprehensive exit planning training and consulting for business owners.
- “Great niche market being addressed here – and the pivot to address COVID-19 impacted businesses is really great to see. Right leader at the right time to help show the industry a better way forward. Well done!”
- “Helping business owners sell their businesses at the right time for the right amount is great.”
- “Very thoughtful market positioning. And leading an industry to take on a very complex, opaque process.”
- “Impressive results, and clearly cares for clients to get what they need inside the BTA.”
BTA empowers owners to take control of their future and make the sale of their businesses the best deal of their lives, which is especially critical right now. The Academy provides all the education, tools, and support they need to develop their exit plans and make the best possible decisions toward achieving a successful exit. BTA members receive a six-step roadmap, video lessons, planning templates, and highly skilled Transition Mentors to guide them every step of the way.
Founder and President of BTA Jane Johnson, who is also the co-author of Cashing Out of Your Business: Your Last Great Deal, in 2020, won the Silver Stevie Award in the category of Female Entrepreneur of the Year – Business Services (Small) for offering the first and only exit planning training academy for business owners.
“Jane Johnson was able to effectively leverage a difficult personal experience she had with selling her own business into a whole new business field itself. The ‘exit-your-business’ field is coveted now more than ever due to the economic struggles many business owners face due to the COVID-19 pandemic. BTA has stepped up to the challenge and is delivering its services to more customers than it has ever before, with some services even being free of charge for those struggling the most,” added another judge.
About the most recent award, Johnson said: “It’s wonderful to be recognized again for the important work we’re doing with business owners. Over the last decade, we have been to help so many owners develop their own strategically sound exit plans that will enable them to exit successfully. We strive to do everything we can to help them achieve their financial and personal goals. Owners must plan their exit in order to maximize business value and sell when the time is right. Thank you to all our clients, partners, and colleagues who helped us do what we do and to achieve this honor.”
