Stage 5 – I’m preparing to sell my business or hand it on to the next generation

acornPreparing for the end game:

Learn how to get the best price for your business

About stage 5

Whether you want your children to take on the family firm, or you want to get the most money you can from the sale of your business, you need to do much the same things in preparation.  The only thing that differs is how you market your business if you want to sell it.

Most people start far too late thinking about selling their businesses – the sooner you start, the more successful you are likely to be.

How we can help you at this stage…


We offer a wide range of business skills workshop in all sorts of subjects, including how to prepare your business for either sale or to hand it on to the next generation. Click here to see our forthcoming events. We regularly add new ones, so don’t forget to sign up to our newsletter so that you receive details.


It’s never too late to start attending networking events – they’re a great place to help spread the word about your business, find possible collaborators or interested parties, get feedback, and share support and inspiration with others who are in the same boat as you. Our monthly networking events will help you meet other like-minded people and help you become part of our amazing and supportive local business community. Our events also include education business advice talks too, so that you’ll always come away with ideas and inspiration.  Click here for more details.


It can be helpful to have some help or advice at this stage to help you maximise the amount of money you get on exit, or make sure that your business is in the best possible shape and as valuable as it can possibly be to hand onto the next generation.  And if you’re undecided as to your longer term plans, we can help you clarify what end game you actually want.  Click here for more information about our 1-2-1 coaching
