If you or someone you know has uttered the above sentence, please consult your local EKSIT Strategist immediately.
OK, maybe that’s a slight exaggeration, but how often do we hear the above, or some close variation of it? And we get it, you have no intentions of leaving your business, and certainly no intentions to stop working any time soon. I promise you then, that I won’t try to re-direct you to the portion of our site discussing the wonderful services we provide that can help you exit your business in the next six to twelve months.
What I can’t promise is that I won’t urge you to take a look at some of the other things we do, and give some thought to the fact that this planning and preparation process can often take years to establish and execute. That’s not meant to be daunting, it’s meant to simply suggest that it’s never too early to become engaged in this process.
No investor or venture capitalist worth his or her salt goes into an investment without a clear understanding of when and how they’re going to get their money out. It may be a 15 year program, and there will be a tremendous number of variables, but the plan will still have some shape, and that’s what we’re talking about. We preach being proactive and taking control of your business’ future and your own financial (and emotional, and physical…..) wellbeing. And it’s never too early for that.
