    Like you, I have experience as an independent business owner.

    During the course of my career, I’ve been personally undertaken …

    • The startup of 10 independent businesses.

    • The purchase of five independent businesses.

    • The sale of five independent companies (two of which were actually mergers).

    • The startup of four franchise operations.

    • The loss of my investment in four independent businesses that were unsuccessful.

    These experiences allow me the unique perspective of being able to empathize with you as you contemplate the sale of your company. I’m familiar with the mix of feelings and emotions that sometimes accompany such thoughts. I’ve had them myself.

    This introduction is designed to acquaint you with my background as an “in-the-trenches” business owner. Perhaps you can identify with some of my experiences.

    Why sell now?

    Government bailouts. An uncertain economy. Private Equity Groups. Wall Street investors. Mergers. Acquisitions. Buyouts. Publicly held companies. Industry consolidation.

    When you hear these buzzwords, it might be time for you to seriously think about cashing out. Why? Because major players may offer you the most money for your company.

    Or maybe you’re thinking about selling for other reasons. Private reasons of your very own. Such as an illness. Or a divorce. Or for estate planning purposes.

    Regardless, the thought of selling your business can be scary. It can be a satisfying, rewarding and profitable experience that makes you very, very rich. Or it can be gut-wrenching, unsuccessful and unprofitable.

    A little planning and a few prudent actions can make all the difference in the world. And (soon) a blueprint to successfully sell your business can show you the way: How to Sell Your Privately Owned Company by Eric R. Voth.
