Exit Strategies for the Solopreneur
Presented by: Dawn Rasmussen, CMP
So you’ve built up your business and customers are booming. But suddenly, retirement age is now looming on the horizon, or perhaps you are burnt out (this happens frequently). How do you plan a graceful exit from your business? Fellow NRWA member Dawn Rasmussen will provide some viable options for you to retain the value of the business asset you have built up while providing clear avenues to move on to the next phase of your life, be it focused on more free time or transitioning to working for another company.
In this session, you will learn:
- Understand what you need to do in advance of leaving your business.
- Determine whether to sell or close up shop, and ways to do so.
- How to transition into your new life phase.
This one-hour recording from the 2020 Virtual Conference is $19.99 for NRWA members and $39.99 for nonmembers. It is not eligible for CEUs.
