What Does Life Look Like After You Sell Your Business?

By Generational Equity

Life Post Close

Far too frequently, we encounter business owners who stop our marketing process at the 11th hour because someone along the way asked them the following question:

“Larry, what the heck are you going to do once you sell your company?”

This question, although important to consider, should not be overemphasized, because the real answer is:

Anything you want!

The reality is that exiting for most of our clients brings a significant amount of relief. The pressure of having to make all the decisions, of taking on additional debt to grow the business, and the issues that keep you up at night are largely gone.

And relief sets in.

This is true even for those clients that do a partial sale and retain some equity in the new company. Having deeper-pocketed partners can make a real difference since you have folks to share the financial load.

Having said all that, I thought it would be great for you to listen to what some of our clients have said about life after their sale. None of these are actors; they are all business owners just like you.

The difference?

They have the relief that you don’t even know you need:

And this is just a very small sample of the post-close thoughts from our clients. In fact, we have an educational YouTube channel with videos that walk you through our entire process.

What I find really interesting about our clients that directly talk about a post-close sense of relief is that for most they were not expecting to feel that when they started their journey with us. It was a surprise emotion and one that many still enjoy to this day.

If a sense of relief and “a load being taken off your shoulders” is something that you would like to eventually experience, then you should start your process now by attending an exit planning conference near you.

These complimentary meetings are highly educational and are designed for business owners to invest time in something that has a tremendous ROI. To discover what you will learn and why you should attend, use these links:
