Sell Your Business and Start Your Retirement

When the day comes to sell your business, it is important that prospective buyers understand why you have made this decision. Having a valid reason why it is time for you to sell can make your business more attractive to prospective buyers. In fact, it is safe to state that buying a successful business from an owner that is retiring is just the kind of the situation that most buyers like.

It is important that your departure does not disrupt the operation of your business and that prospective buyers understand that you have taken steps to ensure a smooth transition.

A key aspect of streamlining, simplifying and organizing your business is to pick out, well in advance, your second in command. Once you have decided on which person would be the best candidate, it is important that you begin grooming that person so they can take over day-to-day operations. Having a capable person who is committed to staying is a very attractive commodity for prospective buyers.
