For every business owner, selling their business is a major life event. They need specialized and strategic planning to prepare for the eventual transfer of their business, which causes a lot of stress and uncertainty. Exit strategies vary by business type and size, but robust plans recognize the true value of a business and provide a foundation for its future direction. Without proper knowledge of the exit planning process, organizational structure, and business goals, business expansion can be a complicated task with an unsatisfactory outcome.
