While 96 percent of business owners know the importance of having an exit plan, fewer than 15 percent have one. The authoritative source for how to expertly sell a business, Exit Signs (Six Degrees Publishing, September 2015) provides a rich roadmap toward the four goals every business owner has when transferring ownership: a profitable sale, pride in leaving a sustainable business, a strong legacy, and a path forward. Packed with detailed goals and milestones, it is the source for mid and late-stage career business owners who want help to sell their business with profit and finesse.
EXIT SIGNS covers both the tactics of selling and the transitions of leaving your company. Dr. Dennis gives late-stage career business owners the steps it takes to sell their business profitably, while providing confidence in knowing that the company will be in solid hands. Studies show that 75% of business owners regret selling their businesses after only one year post-sale. EXIT SIGNS addresses how business owners can confidently transition into retirement without any regrets.
