Publisher's Summary

Punch above your weight class when selling your business.

Every owner must part with their business one day. Many will close their doors, realizing little for their life's work - while a select few will become fabulously wealthy.

The Art of Selling Your Business: Winning Strategies & Secret Hacks for Exiting on Top is the last in a trilogy of books by author John Warrillow on building value. The first, Built to Sell, encouraged small-business owners to begin thinking about their business as more than just a job. The Automatic Customer tagged recurring revenue as the core element in a valuable company and provided a blueprint for transforming almost any business into one with an ongoing annuity stream.

Warrillow completes the set with The Art of Selling Your Business. This essential guide to monetizing a business is based on interviews the author conducted on his podcast, Built to Sell Radio, with hundreds of successfully cashed-out founders.

Excellent Primer in Exits

Valuable information for anyone forming a company. Read it before you build it.

It’s not intuitive to stop and understand the exit process for a startup founder just getting off the ground or raising its first capital.

But knowing the exit process and how to frame to initial investors WHY your company will valuable to an acquirer may be a key to attracting quality investors right up front. These are critical facts and flows to know…
