When Should You Sell Your Business?

Every entrepreneur has different reasons for selling a business, but there are better times and conditions than others in which to do so.

 

For instance, selling simply because you’re exhausted or can’t stand managing day-to-day operations anymore can drastically reduce the value of your company. But bailing out under other circumstances may prove profitable.

 

Here are five signs that it may be a good time to sell.

 

1. You can’t fund the company’s growth anymore,
2. The business runs effectively when you’re not around,
3. You have a more lucrative opportunity,
4. Upcoming life changes will affect your business,
5. You get an offer well above the company’s projected valuation, and/or
6. You want to do something more fun than working every day, and you have (or will have) the retirement funds to make that happen.
