You’ve been the operator of your business for 20 years now and it’s time to retire. Or you’re ready for a career change and you want to sell your company to kick-start something else. Whatever your reasons, selling a business is no easy task. There are a countless number of moving parts over which you need to maintain complete control, not to mention the fact that a clear plan must be in place to ensure that your successor is properly equipped to fill your shoes. Managing Relationships with Staff Members The last thing you want in the midst of a business sale is upheaval among your staff members, suppliers, vendors, key stakeholders or community relations. It is critical that you
It’s new, it’s exciting and you’ve been waiting for the right opportunity to present itself for some time now. You can’t believe that you’re finally about to start your very own business. Although this is certainly a time of great excitement and anticipation, it’s also a time that calls for calculated, careful and strategic planning. Do you know exactly what you’re getting into? Have you done your homework before putting yourself into a position to say “yes”? Are you aware of all the red flags and warning signs to look out for? Have you sought the advice of a legal advisor – ahead of time? There are no shortcuts to success. Be weary of letting yourself become too hasty in

As the business buyer, it is your responsibility to read between the lines, to understand the deal and to know exactly what lies ahead for you and your newly purchased company. Are You Asking Yourself All the Right Questions? Buying a business is exciting but be careful you don’t let the prospect of an affluent future cloud your vision.

“If I buy a franchise instead of starting my own business, it’ll be easier because I’m buying into a proven system.” Sound familiar? Is this a sentiment you share? It’s a common misconception among aspiring business owners and entrepreneurs. Although in theory the statement seems as though it shouldmake sense, experience suggests otherwise. What works now, may not be in your best interests in the future. Before you sign on the dotted line, take into careful consideration what the business arrangement entails both today and in the future. Plenty can change in 5, 10, 15 years and it is critical that your franchisee agreement reflect that. For example: Is the franchisor flexible? Are there unsustainable lifetime royalties in the deal?
