OLWH: Closing Down a Business
Why the Client Called: After many years in business, an entrepreneur called for help in closing down his business. He needed help taking inventory of all the remaining assets - and pulling together all the years of paperwork. Too much for one person!
Solution: A small team of us first pulled together all paperwork - to make sure we had all customer and employee information all safely collected. We also inventoried all computers and technology assets. Finally, we also tracked and inventoried all remaining items of value - from file cabinets to desks, etc.
Outcome: We produced a spreadsheet carefully detailing all remaining valuable assets, as well as descriptive photos all archived inside Evernote. Even though it is a sad day to have to close a business, we were able to give the owner a detailed description of the remaining value in the business.
