Excerpt from Finding your New Owner: For Your Business, For Your Life, by Jack Beauregard:
If you don’t want to think about retiring, I don’t blame you. There are plenty of reasons for not changing what you have now.
You’ve probably heard about other owners who sold their businesses and retired – and after a few months they became bored and depressed.
You like running your company, you’re good at what you do, and maybe it’s hard for you to imagine what you’d do with your life if you didn’t have that workplace to go to every day.
Right now, your company is your life.
But maybe you also have some ideas of what you could do if the responsibility of running your company didn’t take so much of your time and energy.
Maybe you have some thoughts or dreams of what you could be doing instead.
