Selling Your Business? Plan Now! Here's How...

Do you want to sell your business within the next ten years? Now is the time to get ready. 85 percent of retiring business owners don't have an exit plan... but you can do better.

Hold your spot now and show up Wednesday, June 19th at 9 am to get ready to sell!

Key Topics:

  • Getting your financials and operations ready for buyer due diligence
  • Cleaning up business operations before the sale -- checklist of what should be evaluated to make sure it’s working right, what needs to be documented, etc.
  • Finding (or identifying & grooming) the right successor(s)
  • Preparing yourself for the transition -- how to communicate, when and how to step back, what to keep control of
  • Preparing your team for the transition
  • Working with the new owners and your (former) team after the sale
