We are in the midst of an epidemic. Not Covid-19. Another epidemic that is affecting business owners. Businesses that want to transition and are simply not prepared. Only 17% of business owners successfully transition their businesses. 60% of the business owners that do sell are dissatisfied. This podcast lays out the case for exit planning and steps you can take now to avoid being in that 83% of business owners that cannot transition their business. Now is the perfect time to plan for a successful transition in your business.
