Financially Simple Bizcast

31-01-2022 • 17 mins

In episode 396 of Financially Simple, Justin begins to examine the flip side of the coin - what do prospective buyers see when they look at your business as they consider its worth.

As the owner of a business, you know your company the ins and outs, the team and processes that you have in place - but have you considered what a buyer sees from the outside looking in? In this episode, Justin goes over some key points that a business owner needs to consider if and when they decide to sell their company, and what they can do to make it more appealing to potential buyers for a smooth transition.
