“Give yourself time – lots of it – if you want achieve the best outcome in selling your business.” This is what I said to the good folk at BEmedia production recently, when they interviewed me for their Business Essentials Audio Programs… If you’re thinking about selling your business, how about giving yourself three years to plan it all? That’s how long exit strategist Denise Hall would like to prepare a business for sale. There’s much to consider, she says. And don’t forget that an important ingredient is YOU and want you want in life when your business is finally…
