Early in my business someone asked me at a conference, “Do you have an exit plan?”
In my incredulousness, I answered quickly:
“No. I spent my whole career trying to find the perfect gig and I have it now. Why would I want that to ever end?!”
But fast forward to January 2018, and it did end.
For numerous reasons, I exited that decades-old business.
And today about two years after the acquisition of our company, and one year after I left, I’ve have an amended approach to business and starting again.
I believe you should build a business for purpose AND profit. But I’ve added another: for the inevitable exit.
My partner and long-time friend Jeff Meziere (who had his own exit a couple years before me) have put together a one-day intensive to help prepare entrepreneur for their own inevitable exits.
It’s called Exit Exercise Bootcamp and it’ll be Feb. 27, 2020 in Oklahoma City.
Even if you’re not close to an exit event … this bootcamp is for you.
We believe the simple exercise of preparing for the inevitable exit is an investment in building a healthy, profitable company for the entrepreneur.
It’s an exercise of investing in your future that pays off today in a better company for you, your team and your customers.
I’d love for you to join us for an intimate small group of entrepreneurs as Jeff and I lead a discussion filled with lessons learned and takeaways.
When you leave, you’ll have a prioritized list of action items to increase the value of your company AND the health of it no matter when you plan to exit it.
As always if you have any questions, please let me know! And go check out the details of the Exit Exercise Bootcamp here.
