Helping you prepare to exit your Business

Most business owners have regrets. Don't be one of them.

The Business Owner Transition Academy™ (TBOTA) is dedicated to helping business owners understand and manage the complex process of leaving their ownership role on their terms.

TBOTA Managing Director Mike Quinlan has over 30 years of military aviation and business experience and is an expert in helping owners prepare for transition. The TBOTA team member professional credentials include CExP, CPA, CFA, JD and CFP.  Working with additional guest faculty from fields such as law, accounting, mergers and acquisition, financial advisory and business valuation, the TBOTA team helps business owners understand options and opportunities to exit their business, maximizing transaction value and the probability of a successful transaction. 

Seven of ten business owners report being unhappy after transitioning form their business*. Will you be one of the successful ones? TBOTA offers online and in-person education through the Academy as well as individual consulting engagements tailored to the individual owner’s needs.
