Master Your Exit Plan

Master Your Exit Plan


You were competitive and tireless in your efforts to build a successful business. Now, turn that effort into millions of dollars by selling your business for the optimal price and best terms.

But, as a business owner approaches their exit, confusion often sets in as there are many unanswered questions:

  • How do I ensure my company will attract a buyer when I am ready to sell?
  • What is the value of my business, so I can be sure a buyer won’t steal my company?
  • Will the net proceeds be enough money to sustain my life at the same level I enjoy as a business owner?
  • When should I sell my business?
  • Who can help me reach buyers and guide me through the process?
  • What will I do after I sell my business?
  • How do I protect my wealth once I’ve sold my business?

Written in layman’s terms and applicable across industries, Master Your Exit Plan is a roadmap that provides the answers to the above questions and brings clarity to what is a traditionally difficult process. Chris Vanderzyden presents every critical step to create a Master Exit Plan that will help you successfully execute the sale of your business. She shows you how to avoid costly mistakes when selling so you can enjoy financial security and preserve your legacy for future generations.
