Is it the right moment to sell my company?
This is a crucial issue and when is the best time to sell your company? This is a little more of an art than science. It's basically an assessment of the things you've learned. We're outside. This is my backyard. mountain home and is a part of my favorite place.
The first thing I'm going recommend to you is some fresh air. Leave the workplace. Escape the daily grind or with your family or out. Find a area where you can go, no matter if you like to fish, ski or visit the mountains or visit the beach or whatever else you like, go to a place and change your destination and find a place where you are comfortable.
Then think on your own business. When I think about it, and then consider it in three ways. The first is, am I here and am I in the right place? Are I actually in my business? Are I doing my best to serve my company or is my business serving me? In my opinion, it's too short to live in a place where you are serving your business. Your company is your personal road for more freedom and prosperity.
What I mean by freedom is quite straightforward - it's about doing whatever you like, whenever you desire, and as often as you'd like and with whom you'd like. And if you're enjoying the work you're doing and consider, God, this is amazing and I'm there and I'm in the right place and doing exactly what I'm supposed and that's how I think about selling my businesses to other entrepreneurs This is awesome.
The time is not right to sell your company. If you're unsure about this, I'd consider a bit more and then I'd take a deep breath and ask, Do I possess the correct idea? Have I got a crystal clear idea of where I am going?
I'm planning to expand my business over the next three, perhaps up to five? What can I accomplish to overcome it , and also feel fantastic and feel that I've achieved what I've done? If your company is growing by 40% per an year, or 50 percent per year, then you've probably got an enlightened view. It's likely that you're doing a great job and are probably that you're in the flow. However it's possible that you've grown at 5% over the past five years, then it's slightly more challenging and you can find someone who does it better than you.
When my business is expanding at five percent, I'm planning to sell. I'm thinking, okay, I'm in need of an operator. My style is more of a strategist. How do we concentrate on creating something that's incredible, and you're right on target and focused However, the rate of growth is a good indicator of the fact that.
The last thing to remember is that you've accomplished what you were born to accomplish if, when you started your company, when I began my business brokerage business, i was aware that I wanted to alter the way entrepreneurs purchase and sell their businesses. I've founded three of the biggest brokerages. I've either hired the third one, bought them to attract the right people, and I've created a effective market. This is the thing I wanted to accomplish when I arrived to this place.
However, if you quit your current company and thought about this for a while and then decide to leave, would you feel happy or would you feel as if you weren't able to finish what you were there to complete. Then I re-read the situation and thought I'm okay does my company serve me. Are I focused and clear each day?
Do I have any remaining tasks to do and do I have fresh ideas for implementing that idea? These are the questions that will guide you through it. It's a little bit of an unreliable science, but all in all, it's an exercise in gut-check. Which are your thoughts? Do you think it's the right time to sell your company?
If I'm thinking about selling my business the item, it's usually six months too to be. If you have other questions regarding this, or something else that you need help with, it's our pleasure to assist you us here in the Freedom Factory. We're waiting for you to give us a call.
Contact Freedom Factory
At Freedom Factory®, we have experienced and witnessed the explosive results of entrepreneurs aligning passion and purpose to create extraordinary value. However, most entrepreneurs have no idea how to maximize the value of their business and move on to the next chapter of their lives. That’s where we can help.
Freedom Factory® has radically disrupted the way high-growth, lifestyle companies are bought and sold, which historically was a horribly inefficient market. When I sold my first company in the 1990s, I went to several investment banks and sold my business to one of less than five companies they called. Looking back, I see exactly how much money I left on the table and knew that there had to be a better way. The bottom line is that entrepreneurs don’t speak banker, and bankers sure don’t speak entrepreneur.
