If the idea of selling your business keeps seeping into your mind and ignoring the future is no longer possible, it’s time to get serious about a transaction.
What does it take to get your business in shape and ready for a sale? In a perfect world, you’ll need to begin about three years out and get the business as robust as possible so the valuation is high. That means the management team, customer concentration and employee base need to also be exemplary.
Once you do sell the business, what’s your plan for an income stream or for a trust?
Join Texas CEO Magazine for our San Antonio Enlightened Speaker Series breakfast on Friday, May 5, and learn how to increase the value of your business to get ready for a transaction and the rest of your life.
