Be prepared!

Fewer than 20 percent of businesses for sale actually sell, according to a study by the American Chamber of Commerce. Those that do sell to an outside party typically consist of companies that operate in a unique niche or location, or that go up for sale when the economy is growing.

When business owners are asked about when they intend to retire, the answer is almost always “in five years.” Three years later, the answer is still “in five years.” Without a written exit plan in place, the procrastination continues. 

“My business is worth $7 million.”

“I will just sell my business and retire.”


"I will deal with my exit plan in five years."
