Selling and exiting a business is a complex, nuanced, and emotional process. Whether selling with an end goal in mind or exiting to manage financial, personal, or relationship challenges, developing a sound strategy is crucial in executing the process and determining the next steps. With experience selling and exiting multiple businesses, today’s guest reflects on his decisions and imparts advice for those facing similar circumstances.
At age 21, lawn care expert Nathan Brandon founded his first company with a partner. After ten years, the business wasn’t as profitable as he had hoped, so he decided to sell it.

Throughout each process, he retained experiences and wisdom from EO forum members. The key to navigating any entrepreneurial journey is to be vulnerable and listen to others’ struggles.
