  • She also shared that you must always remember that your business is your most valuable asset. 
Why Is An Exit Strategy Important?
  • With no planned end game, it’s very easy for business owners to get more caught up in the business  they’ve given themselves as opposed to the long-term strategy behind running the business itself. 
  • An exit strategy keeps that endgame in mind and can make day-to-day decisions more strategic in nature.
  • If  as a business owner you have no idea where you are going, you will never know when you get there.
  • Having an exit strategy helps you to  define success and provides a blueprint for charting your progress.
What Does An Exit Strategy Involve? 
  • Here are a few areas to consider when trying to plan an effective exit strategy:
  1. Clearly establish your business goals.
  2. Set a realistic time frame.
  3. Clearly outline your intentions for the business.
  4. Know what’s next.
