We don’t want chaotic turnovers; we want smooth transitions when it comes to an exit. Most business owners dream of it but don’t see the need to plan today, which is not the wisest thing to do. Whether an exit for you means selling your business or staying as the owner but having someone manage it for you, a graceful exit is possible.
In today’s podcast episode, the third and final of the Exit Strategy vs. Wishful Hoping series, Danielle Putnam and I discuss how to go about a graceful exit. We also discuss the importance of identifying your time’s highest use and why it is crucial to delegate some of it. We also tackle the importance of technology and a lot more.
