FirePower Succession

PEOPLE-POWER YOUR BUSINESS VALUE.

When it comes to exit and succession planning, it’s important to know: The transferable value of your business is directly tied to how well it can run and succeed without you, the owner.

At FirePower, we help business owners plan for a successful succession by transforming their business from owner-driven to team-driven. That means re-shaping your owner role away from day-to-day operations, toward its most powerful influence on growth. At the same time, we begin the value-building transition of your people from job holders into business contributors, increasing the leadership and decision-making autonomy of your team.

“It was a perfect transition.”

“I had heard: ‘Plan to lose 10-15% of your clients’. We maintained our entire book of business! Succession was a huge part of Maria’s value.”

Don Settina, Founder & Former-Owner | Retire Right Financial Planning

“Maria brings immense value.”

“Consultant, sounding board, voice of reason and excellent ideas. She helped align our vision, build our ideal roles, and get the right team in place. Now we rely on her people and process skills to get important stuff done.”
