Sell and Exit Happy in 3 Steps
“Your succession plan is your
winning business exit process.”
You Want to Know
your company is safe and secure, when you successfully move into your new work or retirement lifestyle.
You Know Your Clients
are watching how you service them and listening to competitors sales presentations. Part of your competition’s pitch is that you are “old and out of touch.”
Can You Afford to Sell
You will find 9 reasons many owners cannot afford to sell. Can you name them? Even if you are on the cutting edge, clients are thinking what will happen when (not if) you leave or quit. You need a succession plan now, whether you use it soon or not. All of your clients want and need to know you are taking smart steps to protect them.
Are you part of the 90% that will depend on selling the company to pay for your retirement? Many want to know the answer. Succession planning builds business owners personal financial security and smooth’s your exit process by
- Coordinating Your Personal and Business Financial Planning Priorities

Succession is the Next Small Business
Millions of business will be up for sale in the next ten years. That means brutally ugly completion for buyers.
The huge problem is that 90% of business owners depend on the proceeds to pay for retirement.
“67% (say) I worry that my business will not be as successful if I’m not there.”
If you believe this as an owner, you just reduced your chances of selling to one in ten and your selling price by 50-90%. You can better your odds for selling success.
To successfully Sell and Exit HappySM, you must understand the value of your company to negotiate a good selling price. Your planning decisions set what you will get, if you can sell. I say if, because 75-85% of companies do not ever sell. They just close their doors and fade away.
Being ready to sell is the biggest selling price booster, 150% more on average. Most overlook the value of intellectual property, IP that is the source of 80% of the selling price today. What it means to be ready to sell is different for small and mid-sized companies.
Even if you have a sellable company, many will not sell because owners miss-price the business. The median miss by an owner setting the price is 60%. If this mistake does not spoil the sale, there are over 37 more mistakes that can kill your chances of selling.
Few would try to ride a bucking bronco without first getting an experienced teacher. Trying to sell your business yourself can end in just as big of a disaster. Helping to prepare your company to sell is not my first rodeo.
