Business Valuation 

As part of our ongoing education series for our counselors, SCORE Santa Barbara invited Jim Lisi of American ValueMetics to present the process which his company uses to help establish a value for either the buyer or seller of a new or existing business. 

Business Valuation

    I was in need of information and specific instructions regarding the incorporation of my business. Walt took the time and met with me a number of times. Helping me through the entire process, he made the time to exactly explain the impact of these steps.
