Burnout: An Ever-Present Threat

Burnout: An Ever-Present Threat Burnout is an often-used reason for an owner selling his or her business. Potential buyers may have trouble accepting this as a valid reason for sale. However, burnout is a valid reason for selling one’s business. A business owner can experience burnout even with a business that’s successful and growing. Many independent business owners feel they’ve worked hard, made their money, and now is a good time to cash out and move on, before burnout endangers the health of the business. The following warning signs should remind a business owner that cashing out beats burning out: You are overwhelmed on a daily basis. When a business owner is a one-man show, even small tasks and minor decisions can seem bigger than Mount Everest. These owners have been shouldering the burden alone for too long, and the isolation has taken its toll. You sense a failure of imagination. Burnt-out owners are so close to their work that they lose perspective. … [Read more...]

Selling Your Business? Expect the Unexpected!

Selling Your Business? Expect the Unexpected! According to the experts, a business owner should lay the groundwork for selling at about the same time as he or she first opens the door for business.  Great advice, but it rarely happens.  Most sales of businesses are event-driven; i.e., an event or circumstance such as partnership problems, divorce, health, or just plain burn-out pushes the business owner into selling.  The business owner now becomes a seller without considering the unexpected issues that almost always occur.  Here are some questions that need answering before selling: How much is your time worth? Business owners have a business to run, and they are generally the mainstay of the operation.  If they are too busy trying to meet with prospective buyers, answering their questions and getting necessary data to them, the business may play second fiddle.  Buyers can be very demanding and ignoring them may not only kill a possible sale, but will also reduce the purchase … [Read more...]

The Business Brokers Survival Guide To Buying Or Selling A Business – 10 Tips For Buyers And Sellers

By Jason Alan - One thing’s for certain when buying or selling a business, it can be a emotional roller coaster for all parties involved (buyer, seller, and broker). It is important that as brokers we identify these emotions and strategically handle them.  I’ve learned to identify a series of patterns from my buyers and sellers with respect to their emotions and behavioral patterns and how to handle them. First and foremost not  taking any of them personally or getting my own emotion involved.  While this can be a challenging exercise, it’s imperative. Once the purchase agreement has been signed and due diligence has begun, buyers and sellers experience a wide variety of emotions. There are several factors that influence the decision making process beyond the hard facts at hand such as: Pride, Denial, Ego, 3rd party advocate (who usually  doesn’t have all of the facts), lack of confidence, and the list goes on.  When any combination of these emotions come into the equation it’s … [Read more...]
