How Great Entrepreneurs Exit Their Companies on TopStreaming Audiobook - 2014
Bo Burlingham's book Small Giants became an instant classic for its original take on a common business problem - how to handle the pressure to grow. It used deeply researched entrepreneurship stories to provide fresh insight into what really makes a great small business.
Now Burlingham returns with a look at an even more common problem - how to leave your company gracefully. He interviewed dozens of owner who have sold or bequeathed their companies and distilled nine key lessons for success.
For example, Ray Pagano turned down an initial offer for his twenty-eight-year-old company that manufactured housings for security cameras in favor of making the business more efficient and profitable. The effort paid off when he sold his newly improved company at the bottom of a recession for four time the original offer.
Through stories like Pagano's, Burlingham offers an inspirational and enlightening guide through one of the most stressful processes every business owner must face.
