Most business owners meticulously plan and oversee their company’s day to day operations. They dedicate the majority of their waking hours and a substantial amount of their finances to their business. In addition to being their most valuable asset, the business is part of who they are and how they define themselves. It is this close connection that owners establish with their businesses that makes it so difficult for them to plan for the sale of their business prior to their actual departure. However, at some point every owner leaves his or her business, whether voluntarily or otherwise. This is a difficult realization to come to and many owners avoid thinking about it altogether. However, those who accept this reality and take the necessary steps to develop a successful exit plan will ensure that they receive the highest value for their business and provide financial security for their family.
