25 Jan Business Exit Stories: Are You a Seller or a Seller? How to Know Which You Are.
A transaction involving a successful residential HVAC company, which is one of those industries that hasn’t been impacted a lot by the pandemic because people still need their furnaces and air conditioners.

A transaction where the seller was talked out of selling, which doesn’t happen all that often because the job of an advisor is to help entrepreneurs sell their business. This decision resulted in tripling the exit value a few years later when it finally was the proper time to sell.
