Is it time for you to consider selling your firm? It’s exciting when we are in the early stages of running our businesses: marketing, networking, meeting new clients, growing the firm. The thought of selling our firm is usually not such a fun topic to consider.
This process can evoke many emotions, some of which we do not want to consider: fear, dread, sadness, to name a few. Some people are happy and excited to think about selling their firms, but this is not the norm. Questions you might have include: What will I do with myself after I sell/retire? How will I find the right buyer? How will I get paid? Will my clients like the new owner and will they be taken care of?
We know in life there is only so much you can actually control. We know that approaching life with a positive attitude helps us make better decisions so focus on the positive side of selling your firm. If you make the decision to sell, that is a big first step. Once you are there emotionally, contact us and we can assist you in finding the right buyer, negotiating a good deal for you and the buyer, working through the closing process and counseling with you during transition. We are here to help you through the entire process to make this an easy, painless process.
Many times we don’t get the opportunity to decide when to sell due to illness or injury, so planning for the future is an important task we must face. Once we face it and deal with it, we can rest in the fact that we have made provisions for anything that comes our way. This is the wise thing to do as it takes the burden off your family and your clients. They certainly don’t know what to do if something happens to you, so take a deep breath and take the necessary steps to ensure you have a plan in place.
