Approximately three-quarters of current small and mid-market business owners plan to retire within the next decade, but fewer than 20% of owners who want to sell their businesses will actually be able to. Meaning, if you plan to sell your business to fund your retirement, you might be in trouble. In The Ultimate Sale, owners are challenged to think of their business as an asset and are shown tactics on how to prepare it for a profitable sale in 10 years or less. Many business books teach aspects of business growth or exit planning for its owner, but not both. The Ultimate Sale does just that.
