When you started selling, you knew that you wanted to grow your business up into a huge success. You knew what it was that you had to sell, you knew that there were customers who already wanted it and you knew that you could get it to market to make a profit.
You know everything you had to know in order to make sure that your business was an initial success. Then came the difficult second stage, the growth of the small business into an SME.
You had it figured out though, there was room for people in different departments and there was enough work to keep everybody busy. The demands were coming in and you were able to ship the product out on time. It wasn’t the easiest time in your business life and some days you really questioned if you were making the right decisions.
Yet, you got through it and moved the company on. It is no longer the start-up. It is not a small family company anymore. It is now a force in the market place and a company with a great reputation. You have done everything you can with the business, so now it is time to start to think about selling it.
