One of the most challenging aspects for business owners is deciding how the business will be passed on to a new generation of owners. Each situation presents its own set of unique options and decisions to be made to provide a roadmap for a successful transition of the business. Proactive planning will help create the optimal transition for the exiting owner and the new generation.
