In my experience as a business owner, broker, and growth specialist, I see two main categories of people wanting to cash out and exit their business.
Both may have started out on a shoestring, enduring years of hard work, sleepless nights, and much blood, sweat, and tears, but in the end have arrived at two completely different places.
Business owner #1.
Busy working in their business for so many years that they have neglected themselves, their health, their outside interests, and even their families.
- They are burned out from running it.
- They have very little freedom to do the things they enjoy.
- Their wealth doesn’t match their efforts.
- They don’t have the ability or resources to grow the business any further.
They are tired of the grind and are looking for a simpler life with less stress, exposures, and constant obligations.
Business owner #2
Have built a self-managing self-multiplying business that “they own” “not operate”, affording them the wealth and freedom to live a life largely on their terms.
- It has sustainable, increasing net profits.
- It is run under management with systems.
- It has a diverse client base & supply chain.
- It creates more freedom and lifestyle enjoyment.
The company’s value has grown significantly; the business has achieved its goals and now has the option of multiple great offers are on the table.
I can tell you business owner #2 will cash out for most likely the best payday of their business life, where business owner #1 may not be able to sell at all or have to cash out at fire sale rates.
Suppose they both end up Cashing Out. The difference is business owner #1 ends up having to get a job and work for someone else as an employee, while business owner #2 buys the Island and lives life on their terms.
