How to Sell a Business

Selling a business is one choice you have after you have scaled it. “Cashing Out” is a reward for all your hard work, but not all businesses can be sold and if you do decide to sell you want to position yourself to get the highest sale price possible.

6 Reasons to sell a Business

  1. Your business is doing well. You want to sell when you are at your peak, not after sales are declining, you’re being sued, or some other problem has arisen, because then you lose your leverage and your sale price is much lower.

  2. Selling frees up the equity that has been built up in the business, so it can be used for other investments, travel, retirement, charity work, or other things of the owner’s choice.

  3. Selling ends the stress of ownership, something that is always present at some level because as the owner you know that you ultimately have responsibility-whether that is from personnel issues, bad social media reviews, threatened or real lawsuits, etc…

  4. You simply don’t enjoy it anymore. It will be obvious to your family, team members at the

    business, and customers if you don’t enjoy it, and sales will drop.

  5. You have received a very attractive, unsolicited offer.

  6. Your kids, family, or friends want to take the business over and run it their way.
