Program produced by XPX DC Metro.
owner readiness vs. business Readiness
Do you know what it means to “get ready” as an owner? And how is getting your business ready for exit different from getting yourself ready? Julie will help you understand the distinctions between these two types of “readiness” and explain why both are critical to a successful business exit strategy. You’ll also hear about market readiness and how it may not align with yours or your business’ readiness. You’ll learn about getting your own personal and financial house in order and creating a great Life-After-Business Plan. Maintaining a productive, fulfilling life is at the top of most sellers’ lists but many don’t have a plan for how they’ll achieve it. Julie will explain how you can avoid “failing” an exit, and how to assess how well your company has prepared you for retirement.
