Know What’s Next When it’s Time to Sell

When it’s time to sell, will you be running away or running to something? Selling your business can be a particularly scary time when you don’t know what you want to do next.

You have a blank slate you can fill with all kinds of dreams and goals. But you have to be excited about what’s next. When we bring on a new client, we ask them to fill out a bucket list. Often they tell us they want to start a new business, travel, spend time with family, volunteer for nonprofits/church, or R-E-L-A-X!

It’s a key part of getting you, yourself, ready for a sale. Skip this step and you might not be ready when it’s time to go. And that’s never a good thing for your company, your employees, or your family.
