Simple Steps for Exiting Your Business 

The statistics on businesses surviving through multiple generations are staggering. Just making it through the second generation is a milestone event for a business. Making it through the third generation is rare and making it to the fourth generation is almost unheard of. The good news is business owners can buck these trends with proper planning. This 3-part series workshop, developed by MassMutual and SCORE, will help you plan for the next stage for your business, for yourself, and for generations to come.

Part 1: Succession Planning

This workshop begins by helping entrepreneurs understand the steps to planning for the eventual transfer of the business. This includes knowing the value of the business, choosing and preparing the appropriate successor, and having it all in writing At the end of this section, clients should be prepared for a variety of business exit strategies both voluntary and involuntary ones.

Part 2: Retirement Planning

Once clients have determined the next steps for their business and their business’ worth, they can start focusing on the next steps in their own lives. In this section, we will discuss issues that arising with having your business be your retirement planning, and other options to save and provide for your retirement.   

Part 3: Estate Planning

Ultimately, this workshop will culminate discussing multiple future planning scenarios, including the difference between estate reduction, liquidity and equalization, and the planning documents needed to  leave a lasting legacy. It is never too early to start planning ahead!
