“A lot of entrepreneurs think that exiting their business means simply selling it off,” said JB. “But what we’ve found is that for many of our clients, the real need is to remove themselves as the bottleneck in their business and enjoy a better quality of life, without necessarily having to sell the entire operation.”

JB also shares insights on the critical steps business owners should take to prepare for a potential acquisition or exit, including the importance of understanding your financials, customer acquisition costs, and overhead. Additionally, he highlights the value of having a neutral third-party advisor to navigate the often emotional process of selling a business.

“The role of an intermediary is so much more than just facilitating the transaction,” said JB. “They can be the ‘adult in the room,’ helping to manage the emotions and protect the long-term relationship between the buyer and seller, even if there are contentious moments during the negotiation.”

Whether you’re a business owner considering an exit, or an aspiring entrepreneur looking to acquire a company, this episode of the SmallBiz Virtual Summit podcast is a must-listen. Tune in to discover the secrets to a seamless business exit and acquisition strategy.
