Over the past 7 years, Jessica oversaw $250+ million in transactions, worked with over 700 business owners, was involved with 350+ deals, and mentored her team to help over 3,000 business owners with guidance about buying and selling businesses.
Jessica is the Founder of Exit Factor, an innovative firm that teaches entrepreneurs how to buy and sell businesses through courses, programs, and consulting. Jessica founded the firm after building the fastest growing and most successful business brokerage practice in the United State. She is the Co-Owner of Transworld Business Advisors in the Rocky Mountain (Colorado) and Dallas Downtown locations. Her teams have achieved #1 status out of 200 global franchises for the last five years running.

She holds active board positions for entrepreneurial groups including serving as President for Entrepreneur's Organization in Colorado.
Jessica knows exactly what it takes for small businesses to succeed and grow into valuable, sellable assets, and her overarching mission is to advocate for small business growth.
She works mainly with small business owners with under $10 million in revenue who desire to build a legacy. Jessica also believes in successful partnerships—which is why Jessica and her husband Al are power partners in both life and business. They have figured out how to grow and sell successful businesses while being happy and successful in their relationship.
Inspired by her small business-owning grandparents, Jessica always knew she’d be an entrepreneur. After working in marketing with the Philadelphia Eagles and Flyers, Jessica started her own business, Decanted, at only 25-years-old. She then grew and sold the business within 2.5 years. She has since bought and sold another 8+ businesses personally helping to grow her businesses' success.

As a successful entrepreneur, Jessica Fialkovich knows what it takes for small businesses to succeed and grow into valuable, sellable assets.
"Jessica is a wealth of knowledge when it comes to mergers and acquisitions as well as overall business growth and success. She not only knows the business of growth through buying and selling businesses, she's actually done it herself which makes me respect her even more. Jessica was my guest speaker at a Brazen Women Entrepreneurs roundtable event and was able to give valuable information to women at various stages of growth. She stressed the importance of being intentional in making preparations for your business now so you can sell later. I would recommend Jessica as a speaker and workshop facilitator."
