Swets, who has more than 15 years of experience in the industry, shared her expert opinion and advice on how to handle this kind of transaction, what to expect (both the good and the bad), and how to deal with the parties involved. She noted that selling a business can be an overwhelming process, but advised listeners to rely on the people that they trust.
“The most important thing is surrounding yourself with the right people, the trusted advisors who have been there with you throughout the time you’ve built your business and who know you, know your motivations, and can really support you through it,” Swets said.
During the rest of their conversation, the pair unpacked the different challenges that come with selling your business and retirement planning. To hear more insights into this topic, you can hear the rest of the podcast here on Entrepreneur Podcast Network.
