What are you missing in your Business Exit plan?

I went through the process of exiting three businesses in the last year. Despite my experience as an entrepreneur and certified exit planning advisor, I found that the process of moving my business from an illiquid to a liquid position was challenging. Truly, there’s no amount of preparation that can prepare you for the emotional rollercoaster you’re going to ride as you exit your business.

What you can prepare for when you exit your business, however, are the blind spots.

In this episode, I explain how to avoid the largest blindspots in exit planning and transitioning your business. I describe the advantages and challenges associated with transitioning a business to employees, family members, or the open market. I also discuss avoiding the familiarity bias and underscore the power of working with a certified exit planning advisor.
