Driven entrepreneurs think about every aspect of their business except, sometimes, what comes after it. You may sell your business. You may want the business to stay in the family. Or you may want something in between. These are complex decisions to make, so having the right advice from a trusted partner can make all the difference.
Questions to ask yourself
When you’re thinking about handing over your business, it’s a good idea to start planning as early as possible. But there’s a lot to consider. Start by asking yourself these three questions:
What is my exit strategy?
You may not intend to step back from your business in the near future. But having a long-term plan can eliminate a lot of question marks. Could you make a well-informed decision in the event of an offer to buy your business?
What are my options?
Every entrepreneur will want something different. You could sell your business. You could pass it along to your family. Or you might not want to give them full control just yet. There’s no right or wrong answer, just what’s right for you.
What happens after I sell?
Selling your business is a life changing event. Regular income from your business will transform into one large lump sum of money. You’ll also have to decide how best to step back from your role running the company. How will you handle both?
