Your Comprehensive Strategic Exit Plan
Selling your business profitably, so you can move on to what’s next takes planning and preparation. For you to exit your business on your terms on your timeline, your comprehensive strategic exit plan should include:
1. Strategic Business Planning
To accelerate growth, maximize value, timing the sale of your business, strengthen your cash flows, and enhance the value drivers that make the business buyer attractive.
2. Succession Planning/Continuity Planning
To provide assessment and training for you and your management team to transfer operational responsible for the business from the CEO to the business and the core team. You take on a more strategic role focused on instilling leadership into the next generation of managers and leaders.
3. Transition Planning to Reinvention
To address how to achieve your personal goals [new venture, adventure, avocation, hobby, retirement defined] and how to approach delegating and transferring control to focus on fulfilling your purpose in life and make you feel significant in the world.
4. Contingency Planning
To prepare for what happens to the business and your family if you die unexpectedly; or your servers crash; or your office burns down. This is your insurance policy on your dream.
You need a trusted advisor who integrates these elements in a deeper conversation — alongside the numbers — into your holistic long-term exit plan. Cultivating mental readiness, mindset and skill sets in each area is also essential to achieve your ultimate goal of the exit plan. Don’t try this alone.
