Testimonials

At the age of 35, I am currently in the worst financial position of my adult life. To get Myself into a better position, I knew things had to change.

After being referred to Peter Marmara-Stewart, I called him and asked for his help. He made the trip from Morwell to Frankston to see me. From the moment I met him, I knew he was going to be the one to not only help me escape my current financial position, but also be the one to help me towards my goal of financial freedom.

Peter is the depiction of genuine. It is evident he genuinely cares and wants to help people. Everything he does demonstrates that. I run a small business and compared with other businesses, Peter and his team help; I am small fish, yet Peter has a way of making me feel like I am his only client.

To Peter and the team at Preston Coe & Ring, thank you for helping me believe I can, not only get out of my current financial circumstance, but for also giving me the belief that I can achieve financial freedom.

I’d recommend Peter to anyone, no matter where you are in the world; he will make you feel like you are there with him in the same town.

“They make things simple & easy to understand; which makes life easy.”

Mark Calway.

“Going on the FASTTrack Business Success Program has had a substantial impact to my business. It got me to where I wanted to go a lot faster than I expected. Whilst I might have been able to learn and do some of these things myself, they would have taken a lot longer, a lot more effort and money to get it to where it is now. Having the weekly accountability created a fire under my seat to make sure I got done what needed to be done before our next weekly session.”

Blood Pressure Test

Posted by Peter Marmara-Stewart at Tuesday, February 21, 2017

A Blood Pressure Test for your Business

When was the last time you had your blood pressure tested?

Taking your blood pressure is one of the first things most doctors do before treating you for just about anything. How much pressure your blood is under as it courses through your veins is a reliable indicator of your overall health; and it can be an early indicator of everything from heart disease to bad circulation.

Does it tell the doctor everything they need to know about your health? Of course not, but one powerful little ratio can give the doctor a pretty good sense of your overall wellbeing.

Likewise, your Value Builder Score can be a handy indicator of your business wellbeing. Like your blood pressure reading, your company’s Sellability Score is an amalgam of a number of different factors and can help a professional quickly diagnose your business’s overall health.

Predicting Good Outcomes Too


When a doctor takes your blood pressure, they not only rule out possible nasty ailments; they can also use the pressure reading to forecast a healthy life ahead. Similarly, your Value Builder Score can predict good things for the future. For example, based on more than 10,000 business owners who have completed their Value Builder Score questionnaire, we know the average multiple of pre-tax profit they are offered for their business when it is time to sell is 3.7. By contrast, those companies that have achieved a Value Builder of 80+ are getting offers of 6.6 times pre-tax profit.

In other words, an average-performing business turning out $500,000 in pre-tax profit is likely worth around $1,850,000 ($500,000 x 3.7). If the same company improved its Sellability Score to 80+ while maintaining its profitability of $500,000, it would be worth closer to $3,300,000 ($500,000 x 6.6).

Are you guaranteed to fetch 6.6 times pre-tax profit if you improve your Value Builder Score to 80? Of course not. But just like blood pressure, one little number can tell you and your advisor a whole lot about how well you are doing; and your advisor can then prescribe an action plan to start maximizing your company’s health – and its value down the road.

Heart disease is called “The Silent Killer” because most people have no idea what their blood pressure is. People can walk around for years with dangerously high blood pressure because they haven’t bothered to get it tested. The first step on the road to health is to get tested. If you have a great score, you can sleep well at night knowing you have one less thing to worry about. If your score is not where it should be, then at least knowing your performance can get you started down the road to better health.
