The sale process
A company sale is probably one of the most traumatic and emotional experiences that you will ever go through. You are probably never fully prepared for what will happen but only “ mostly prepared “. It is right up there with births, deaths, marriages, divorces, house purchases and property building and renovations !! In fact it is highly likely that some of these events will occur alongside you selling your business. I say to people that it is a 100 times worse ( or sometimes more exciting ! ) than selling your house and buying a new one.
