One of the hardest decisions to make as a business owner

David Ortiz |

As Hamlet once said, 'To grow or to exit, that is the question.' Or... something like that. Similar to Hamlet’s 'to be or not to be,' business owners often face a comparable dilemma.

When you exit, what are you going to do with your life? Your business is your identity, and separating from it can feel like a sting of death. So, why in the world would you exit?

What is navigating your ship when making these life-changing decisions? Should I stay on course and grow? Because if I'm not growing, I'm dying... or should I exit? These are the two concurrent paths an owner deals with at the end of exit planning.

Our mission is to decentralize the owner from operations and create a company that is so good you won’t want to leave. But that’s also why a buyer will pay a premium for your business.

This question will help you as an owner... Are you running from your business, or are you running TO your next adventure? This may be buying another business, being a full-time grandparent, or serving on non-profit boards. Where do you find more purpose and value?

That’s how we navigate these tough decisions. Because after you go through exit planning, the goal is to be working less, to be worth more, and to have a clear vision for your business.

So, as the business owner is stuck in his philosophical woes pondering 'to grow or to exit,' we hope to provide clear direction so you can stop worrying about whether you can walk away, and start your next adventure."
