It’s almost a year to the day since Dan and Ian sold their business. They don’t regret their decision. But, during these past twelve months, a lot of “What Ifs” have been popping into their heads.

Recently they’ve been approached by some listeners who are also considering selling their businesses.  So, on this week’s show, you’ll hear some of the common questions that keep cropping up, as well as five reasons why selling your business might not be the right idea for you.
