Start Thinking About What’s Next For You- NOW!

A webinar on how to make a successful business transition

 

If you are a small business owner, now is the time to stat thinking about your transition from the business. Experience has shown that from the time you make a serious decision to leave, it can take up to 5 years to make a transition- and that is if “life doesn’t happen” – which it usually does.

On October 20th, MetroIBA will host a webinar with nationally recognized transition expert and co-author of Find What’s Next For You: Business Owners Share Their Transition Stories,  Jim Gambone,- co-founder of Biz-Bridge LLC, a Transition Resource Company. (www. Biz-Bridge.com)

 

The Webinar will cover topics like:

  • How to start the “transition conversation” with you family and your company
  • Why 80% of business transitions fail the first time around
  • How to capitalize on generational differences in transition planning
  • What are gender differences in transitions?
  • How to deal with family or stakeholder conflicts in transition
  • What is an owner sabbatical?
  • What tools and resources are available to help in the transition
  • How to ReFire your post- business life instead of retiring it

 

This fast paced, interactive workshop will introduce you to the key questions you should be thinking about even if you are years away from leaving your company.

 

Here are links  a few articles in the Business Journals by Jim that can get you started before you come to the workshop.
