The Value Builder System™ is an online platform with a suite of tools designed to build company value over time. The business owner and their Certified Value Builder login to our secure system to complete exercises, set goals and track progress against a variety of value-building metrics.
We utilize the Value Builder System™ to identify the opportunities most likely to enhance the value of your business, and the issues that are certain to reduce value. Once we've assessed each of the value drivers in a clients business, we develop an actionable plan suited to each clients timeline and goals.
As a small business owner, all of the decisions for my business to fail or succeed rest on my shoulders. Big decisions are difficult. George has helped me break down my business goals into manageable parts. He’s showed me how to scrutinize how I spend my time, making sure that it's aligned with my priorities and goals. He’s helped me envision success by learning about different topics, how they will directly affect my progress toward successfully growing my business. Many of the ideas that he’s presented were foreign to me. Yet, he’s showed me that his ideas and procedures can not only help my business but anyone’s business. He’s taught me to play to my strengths and take action more effectively. This has proven to be an extremely productive process. I’ve never had a more optimistic view of my business success. I thank George and his Value Builder program and can highly recommend him to any business owner looking to open new doors for success in their business.
“George has been instrumental in helping our new business develop recurring revenue models, document processes to grow and scale and structure it to sell one day. It is eye opening when regardless of your business or industry, he is able to apply the same concepts to each one. We are so fortunate to go through the Value Builder System with George early on in our endeavor, rather than years later after burnout and realizing there could have been a better way!”

“I've been working with George for several years as well as a few months as part of the Value Builder program. George has a very impressive background and brings a great deal to this program. I particularly enjoy watching him coach and mentor the other participants in the program. This program is impressive and George does a great job facilitating it.”
Owner, Business Innovation Team (BIT)
“I have known George since 1997 when he was a client at Business Systems & Solutions. George is someone I would recommend highly for any endeavor. George has stayed in touch with me over the years and exemplifies the art of networking. He is open, dependable, thoughtful of others and has excellent business acumen. He is personable and professional at the same time. A great friend!”
Optimist and Speaker
“George is a consummate professional with a vast array of expertise. His communication and organizational skills have been honed through many years of experience. George is extremely well connected in the financial community as well as the investor community, making him a go-to advisor for any Company that needs help in securing growth capital or in seeking working capital loans. Bravo, George!!”
President, MCA Advisors, Corp.
“While I have not worked with George in his professional capacity as a client, we know one another through Buckhead Business Association. We worked together on a committee to plan the 2009 "A Taste of Buckhead Business EXPO". He provided great input to the committee, is a clear and concise thinker, and is professional in every aspect. These are characteristics of a solid business person and leader.”

How to Avoid the Switzerland Valuation Discount
The Swiss are known to value their independence. They don’t use the Euro currency despite being sandwiched between France and Germany, and they never officially picked sides in the World Wars for fear of tying their wagon too closely to one geopolitical regime over the other.
That’s why we give the name the Switzerland Structure to a business model that is set up to be free of a reliance on a key customer, employee, or supplier.

Stop Selling Your Time
If your goal is to build a more valuable company, stop selling your time.
Billing by the hour or day means customers are renting your time rather than buying a result, which means that your business model lacks leverage. To grow, you need to either work harder or hire more people. Since it can take months to ramp up new employees, fast growth is just about impossible.
One of the eight factors that acquirers look for in the businesses they invest in is your company's Growth Potential. Simply p…
Protecting Against the End Run
A football defensive coordinator needs to protect against an “end run,” a tactical play where your opponent sends the running back wide around the offensive line to try to evade the oncoming tackle.
Just like in football, you have to defend against an end run coming from a supplier that chooses to go around you to get to your customers. The more of your supply you get from a single provider, the more vulnerable you are to that supplier deciding they don’t need you and instead deciding to go str…
