Author explains how to sell your business — and feel good about it
But Chris Vanderzyden argues that the story isn't over at that point.
Vanderzyden wrote her recently-released book, Master Your Exit Plan: Sell Your Business, Preserve Your Legacy, to help business owners through the next and just as important stage: Selling the business.
As Vanderzyden points out, 80% of businesses that are brought to market do not sell, and of the 20% that do, 75% of those owners regret selling their business later. Often it's because they hadn't thought through what their life would look like after the sale.
"The only way to exit your business from a position of control and clarity, resulting in a successful sale and a satisfying post-ownership life, is to have a Master Exit Plan in place," Vanderzyden writes. The book answers the following most pressing questions:
With over 20 years of experience consulting for M&A firms and privately held businesses, Vanderzyden is a founding partner of Legacy Partners, LLLP, an exit planning and M&A advisory firm. Master Your Exit Plan embodies the concepts she developed and uses every day with her clients.
Vanderzyden is also the best-selling author of 7 Steps to Entrepreneurial Victory. She speaks internationally on exit planning and mergers and acquisitions, is an expert contributor for media outlets, and is a guest lecturer for Harvard University Extension's Entrepreneurship and Innovation course.
