Most Business Owners dream of leaving their company with a wheel barrel of money but many owners fail to plan or develop an exit strategy.
An unplanned exit can have devasting financial consequences. You might pour your capital, sweat equity, and tears into building a business and not be positioned to attract buyers upon your exit. You could sell your business but not have nearly enough to retire. Or unforeseen events could shutter your business long before you receive any return on your investment for all of your efforts.
