Objective Entrepreneurs facing a turnaround have two alternatives: (1) Rehabilitation or, (2) Liquidation (bankruptcy). Liberty Capital prefers to rehabilitate. In order to do so, you should consider the following:
Getting Help: Your business is in trouble, your optimism as an entrepreneur may be a virtue that stands in the way of a successful turnaround.
Intervening Quickly: Failure to act immediately drastically reduces your options and drastically reduces the chances of success.
Preserving Alternatives: Don't panic and make independent decisions. The more options you have for managing a crisis the higher the likelihood a turnaround will succeed.
Getting A Realistic Appraisal: The saying "you are so far into the forest you can't see through the trees" is most often the case. You need an outside review from someone who will probably tell you a lot of things you would prefer not to hear.
Developing a Plan: The realistic appraisal will serve as the platform for the Turnaround Plan. It will include a capitalization plan, financial planning, operational planning, administrative planning, sales and marketing planning.
