“Here’s what I can tell you, selling your business is a concern of any business owner … whether they are thinking about it and planning for it, or not. It will be a concern one day. It’s like your blood pressure, you are a concern for proper blood pressure, whether you have that concern or not. So, you might as well investigate it and be prepared. It’s too costly to be unprepared,” said Tom Fochtman. “The goals of the presentation are to provide you with strategies and a toolbox to get your business ready to sell. And then, to get you thinking about how to prepare your business for a transition whether it’s to a family member, employees, private equity, a competitor, or an outside interest.”
