About the Book

Discounts available for bulk orders. 

In 2016, Chris Snider, CEO of EPI, wrote the first book on the Value Acceleration Methodology called Walking to Destiny: 11 Actions an Owner Must Take to Rapidly Grow Value & Unlock Wealth. The book is written for business owners by a business owner. It’s a proven system to maximize value, grow income, and build a business that can run without you, even if you never plan to leave. And if you do think you won’t ever exit your business, the business owner who never plans to leave needs a well-functioning, attractive business more than anyone.

Walking to Destiny was written to arm business owners and their advisors with the knowledge and understanding needed to recognize their potential, execute growth tactics, and harvest the wealth locked inside a business.

The book is also designed to bridge the gap between advisors and owners to get them on the same page. From an advisor perspective, the Value Acceleration Methodology has become the leading process for exit planning and is prominently utilized by exit planning advisors across the world. We want to change the outcome for business owners who have invested their lives in their business.

To do that, we need to change the paradigm of how exit planning is perceived by owners. Exit planning is good business strategy. Exit planning is now. With readiness comes success, freedom, and wealth, and providing that roadmap is the purpose of Walking to Destiny.
