Business Exit Preparation
You’ve built a successful business… Now what?
As an owner, you’re ready for almost anything. You’ve had every situation thrown at you and you’ve handled it. But recent data shows that even the most affluent and successful business founders struggle with one common problem: regret as to how they handled leaving their company.
This has two major elements:
- The price they received for their business and the legacy they left; and
- How prepared they are – personally – for retirement where all the demands and achievements of running a business have disappeared.
Are you personally ready for what should be the happiest day of your life?

Expect the best. Prepare for the worst. Capitalize on what comes.
Courage is being scared to death, but saddling up anyway.
Success is walking from failure to failure with no loss of enthusiasm.
Business has only two functions – marketing and innovation.
The only way around is through.
Whether you think you can or whether you think you can’t, you’re right!
Even if you are on the right track, you’ll get run over if you just sit there.
If you really look closely, most overnight successes took a long time.
There’s no shortage of remarkable ideas, what’s missing is the will to execute them.
You only have to do a few things right in your life so long as you don’t do too many things wrong.
Business opportunities are like buses, there’s always another one coming.
Success is not final; failure is not fatal: it is the courage to continue that counts.
