Small business owners should consider the eventual exit from their small business. One way or another, we will all eventually exit our businesses – ideally by choice, but perhaps due to unplanned circumstances such as death, disability, divorce or partnership disputes. For many business owners, selling a successful business may be an ideal exit option. Ideally, you build your business such that you may eventually be able to realize the financial rewards of selling it. On this episode, Ron Chernak shares his insights on how to successfully exit a business through a sale.
