About the Book
Selling a company you own is a huge step. It can be fraught with peril and with those who are eager to take advantage. Exiting your business is almost as difficult as starting it. In Getting Out from Under, author Robert J. Fritz discusses the process of selling one’s own business.
Based on his personal experiences of both owning and selling his business, Fritz covers the:
Emotional angst of parting with one’s business
Empty feeling that can come from life without it•Realization that one might not have enough cash for retirement
Desire to make sure one’s loyal employees do not get harmed
Amount of work one must do to part with a privately-owned business
Admonition to not avoid unpleasant thoughts, but to address them and plan for them
A guidebook to selling your business, written by someone who’s been through it successfully, Getting Out from Under helps business owners who want to protect their wealth, secure their family’s future, and feel good about it.
