You should be thinking about your exit strategy at least three years before selling. If you’re in a position to sell your business and you haven’t got an exit strategy, then you’ve fallen behind.
When you’re looking to sell, do our research about what kind of offers you can expect. use online tools like BizBuySell to see the values of other similar companies and those located near you.
Are you working in the business? With customers and other employees. Or are you working on the business? Growing the value of the business. If you are not an integral part of your business, your business will be more attractive to purchasers because they will not need to replace you.
When comparing your business with others, don’t look at public companies. These will typically be valued a lot higher.
