About Antonius Bittmann
As a Business Exit and Acquisition Coach, my passion is to help you sell your company on the most favorable terms, or buy a new one to grow your empire and wealth!
I’m also a Certified Value Builder to give you access to some very powerful tools for increasing the value of your company, whether you plan to sell it for maximum $$$ or enjoy the benefits of an optimized operation.
As an owner of multiple companies, I feel your pain and share your dreams, but I also see your opportunities. Thirteen years after I purchased my first business, I now own fine arts schools in multiple states. But my entrepreneurial path has not been a straight line, nor has it been all glamorous. The peaks and valleys I encountered taught me the hard way how lack of strategic preparation doomed my chances to sell my company--on more than one occasion. Don’t let the same thing happen to you; it is very painful! At the same time, the knowledge I gained over the years has prevented me from buying the wrong business!
Based on my own hands-on business and life experiences, I have particularly deep insights into businesses offering educational programs for children and teenagers, such as dance studios, karate studios, music schools, art schools, drama schools, gymnastic schools, tutoring centers, among others. I am intimately familiar with the challenges owners of these businesses face on a daily basis--with students, parents, employees, day-to-day operations, competitors, etc.--and the pressures they are under to survive and thrive. I’m in it right now as you are reading these lines! But I also know how to make your operation more manageable. More importantly, having worked with multiple sellers, I have developed effective strategies on how to get out of it successfully--on your own terms and for maximum profit!
Education has been a life-long calling for me. I have studied (and still do) with some of the best business coaches in the industry. Outside of my business activities, I have earned two doctorates--a Ph.D and a Doctor of Musical Arts Degree (D.M.A.)--and for more than 20 years I also have had a distinguished career in higher education both as a professor and an administrator.
I’m excited to share my knowledge of how you can prepare your business for the most profitable sale whenever the opportunity arises, or for the moment when you choose to sell.Book a FREE Call Today!
