As a business owner, at some point you’re going to monetize your asset – whether you’re transitioning to the next generation of the family or selling to an external buyer, there are many decisions to make along the way. In this video, Barnes Dennig Wealth Management pros unpack timelines, key decisions, and what advisors you’re likely to need to maximize the value of your company and ensure its ongoing success.
When is the right time to transition your business to that next generation or next owner?
There is no magic answer to that. It starts years before you’re willing to do it, understanding that you have a retirement goal and plan. You’ve got to ask, “what does this look like? When am I going to be ready to step away?” From there, it’s working backward, evaluating all those around you and asking, “who am I going to sell to? Is it internal? Do I have the right people?”
And beyond the transition, there are other decisions, like managing your assets. Understanding your wealth advisor’s obligations and ensuring they’re doing what’s truly best for you. And knowing how all the pieces of your financial puzzle fit together to ensure you’re living the life you imagined while ensuring your company goes on in the best possible way.
