Ongoing business viability is fundamental to generational business transition, as without it such transition must fail. Continual strategic planning is critical to business viability. For business owners and their advisors improved strategic planning has to be a high priority focus.

Business Transition and Valuation Author and Consultant
Introduction
In 1976 founded Toronto based Campbell Valuation Partners Limited, a business valuation consultancy that provides business valuation advisory advice, principally in Canada.

In mid-2005 concluded that there was going to be a serious U.S. economic downturn, and began to write an economic and resources blog.

From 2007 to April 2013 developed StockResearchPortal.com, a research and due diligence website focused on the Mining and Oil & Gas stocks. The website is currently off-line.

In 2012 created The Economic Straight Talk Newsletter, a subscription newsletter focused on the world economic and on resources. The www.EconomicStraightTalk.com website and Newsletter in combination provide readers with daily filtered economic and resources news from over 150 world news sources, and with contextual commentaries on what are viewed as particularly relevant news stories.

In 2014 authored 50 Hurdles: Business Transition Simplified, a book that focuses on family business transition differently than does most business transition (more commonly called succession) literature. Introduced www.BusinessTranstionSimplified.com to the internet, a website offers information relevant to family business owners and owners of non-family private companies, and the free Business Transition and Valuation Review newsletter.

Offers business valuation and transition planning consulting advice through Business Transition Counsel Inc.
