Over the past 12 years, I have learned that it is a mistake to sell a business the way real estate is sold. Real estate is static. Businesses are dynamic, living things. If you do not sell a business the smart way, then you are leaving money on the table and risking that your business will fail after it is acquired.
During my career, I have been a business owner, investor, and employee. I acquired a motor scooter retailer. I led a group of angel investors who together funded three start-ups, all of which failed. I founded a contract dispute resolution business, which is now part of Next Bridge Advisors’ M&A deal advisory. Earlier, I also served as General Manager at a small health informatics company and Corporate Development Business Analyst for E-Trade Financial. I have been involved in 5-, 6-, 7-, 8-, and 9- figure transactions.
