The Pinnacle of Success is a Good Exit Strategy

Over 90% of businesses in the U.S. are small businesses… which means we employ most of the working citizens in our country. What a responsibility! 

But what happens to our business AND our employees if something happens to us?
What if you woke up tomorrow and couldn’t keep doing what you are doing now?  

No one likes to think about that, but it is something every business owner needs to consider.

For this reason, having a plan in place that allows the business to continue running with a smooth succession plan is necessary when we can no longer be at the helm.

Tune into this week’s episode where my amazing guest, Janise Graham, and I go over what an exit strategy is, what is used for and why it is so important to have in place.

By starting with the end in mindyou won’t be caught off guard and leave your employees or family in a lurch.
