Sadly, one of the biggest changes in the lives of business owners who have sold their businesses is the sudden influx of requests for your time and money. In today’s world, with the proliferation of access to media, you can potentially see hundreds of inbound requests after selling your business. Creating a plan of how you’ll want to handle such requests can ease the stress associated with them:

  • Say no to many of these requests in the first 90 days of selling your business.
  • Find a partner who can objectively evaluate many of these requests.
  • Create a gatekeeper who can assist in screening these inbound requests.
