Selling your business is an important financial decision -
Selling a business is challenging because of the many important tasks to accomplish.
Those include valuation, financing, negotiation, due diligence, contracts, taxes, involving attorneys, accountants, bankers, partners, spouses, vendors, customers, employees and more.
To sell your business at the optimum price, its important to get guidance on market price, deal structure, financing options, and to keep the transaction moving forward even during challenging situations. And you'll need to keep running your business at the same time.

Would you like to sell your business and receive the highest price possible?
Of course you would. But is your business ready to sell? And are you prepared for it to sell?
Currently, 80% of businesses listed for sale never sell. Why? A large percentage are over-priced because the owner did not obtain a professional third party valuation. Many owners try to sell the business on their own, without a business broker. But the biggest reason that the majority of businesses don’t sell is because the owner had no strategic exit plan before taking the company to market.
With over 5,000,000 Baby Boomer business owners between the ages of 52 and 70 planning to sell their businesses and retire, it’s important to make sure your company is sell-able to the right buyer. The right buyer may include a family member, key employee or a third party. But if you haven’t determined who the best buyer is, you won’t maximize the value and you may not sell your business at all.
Don’t be one of those who just hope to sell someday. Hope is not a strategy. It’s just wishful thinking. With an exit plan, you can maximize your sales price and keep more of it, while you create options for your next adventure. Wouldn’t you prefer that your business be one of the 20% that do sell?
Exiting your business doesn’t have to mean retirement. Doing it right gives you the freedom to follow your dreams…..travel, write a book, start a band, or run a non-profit. Whatever it is you want after you sell your business, you can get there from here. Let’s get started. Contact me today.
