Are you making your business valuable and saleable enough? Buyers look into the value of your business before they even consider buying it. And if you want a successful exit from your business, it’s time to put in the work needed to build value. Aim to understand the factors involved in creating a more valuable business that buyers will want to buy. 

In today’s podcast episode, I talk once again with my guest Danielle Putnam. This episode is the second of a three-part series called Exit Strategy vs. Wishful Hoping. Danielle discusses the things buyers look into during the acquisition of your business. She also shares the areas that a business owner should look in to create more business value. She encourages business owners to make constant room for improvements in their business today.
