Perhaps you picture yourself golfing in the sunshine, or sipping a crisp chardonnay while overlooking your retirement home in Hawaii. However, like many business owners, you probably haven’t given much thought to the path between now and your ideal retirement.

If this is the case, you could be on the fast track to an involuntary sale of your business due to unexpected illness, death or financial troubles. You want to have control over when and to whom you sell or transition your business ― which can take years to… Continue reading
