Being a business owner gives you control over your life and your future, but most people don’t think about what it the process will look like when it comes time to sell. No one knows the value of the business like an owner does, but that doesn’t mean that value will always translate into the sale.

That’s why you need a plan and a team to help you execute that transaction so you get as much out of the business as possible.

Brian Bowen has his Certified Exit Planning Advisor (CEPA) designation, which means he’s in a unique position to advise busines owners in that transition process out. So many things could go wrong and a CEPA can be a huge asset to you, your family, and your future.

In this episode, we’ll talk about the role the CEPA plays in the process and the decisions that need to be made during this exit process. If you’re a business owner and haven’t started thinking about retirement, this episode should be very valuable.
