More than ever before, owners are thinking about and planning their eventual transition out of business. Historically, over eighty percent of owners wait until life circumstances force them out. Whether it's a life threatening illness, a change in mobility, or simply a loss of passion, all business owners eventually recognize they will leave their business at some point. The question is how. With the efficiencies of today's technologies, software, and contemporary business services, owners can now choose what's best for them. It might be a sale to a strategic buyer, employee or employee group. It could be to an investment group, or even a merger with a competitor. The process is the same. Every business has strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and threats (SWOT). Every industry has best practices. Once there is a thorough understanding of the existing situation, timing becomes the biggest factor.
