I admit it. I have two motives for writing this blog: one altruistic and one completely selfish. First, the altruism: this blog is another attempt to persuade owners that the light you see at the end of your business-owning career tunnel is not the exit of your dreams. Until you take advantage of the latest thinking and best practices in Exit Planning, that light is a 15,000-ton locomotive that will flatten your business, your financial security and your legacy.
Selfishly, I’ve joined the Forbes roster of bloggers because my blood pressure soars every time I see another owner fail to take full advantage of their “last act” in their business careers simply because they lack information and guidance.
