Selling or Exiting Your Business

There is a lot of hard work put into planning and starting a business, as well as keeping it profitable throughout the years. However, many very successful business owners put little or no thought into how they will exit the business when the time comes. This process, like anything else, requires careful thought and planning to ensure a successful transition.
