The Business Journals: Why selling your business is a team activity


Calhoun Companies President and Co-owner, Andy Kocemba, is a contributing writer for The Business Journals. Every month he offers advice on buying and selling small businesses.


Selling is a Team Activity

You have grown your business by being an expert in your field, and have likely relied on a team of experts. When you are beginning to sell your company, it is time to draw them in even closer.


Growing up, I learned a lot about home improvement from my dad, and today I am an avid “do-it-yourselfer.”

The same can be said about the process of selling your business. To maximize the value of your business, make the process smooth, and keep the business healthy until it is handed over, you must draw in your team of experts.
