The Expressway to Selling Your Company with Pride and Profit

While 96 percent of business owners know the importance of having an exit plan, fewer than 15 percent have one. The authoritative source for how to expertly sell a business, Exit Signs provides a rich roadmap toward the four goals every business owner has when transferring ownership: a profitable sale, pride in leaving a sustainable business, a strong legacy, and a path forward. Packed with detailed goals and milestones, it is the source for mid and late-stage career business owners who want help to sell their business with profit and finesse.

Pamela grew her firm from a sole proprietorship to a firm with multi-million dollar revenues and offices on two continents, and successfully and profitably sold her business using the principles outlined in the book.
