The key to success, whether it is building a sports team, mastering a new skill, or building a successful business, is discipline. Maintaining the discipline to stick with it regardless of what gets dished out to you. Focusing on the end game and what your mission is, will ensure that you get what you want.
One of the reasons many business owners are not successful in selling their business is they either don't have a disciplined process to follow to prepare themselves and their business, or they lose focus on the end goal.
To ensure a maximum value exit, business owners need to find and to stick to their guns in preparing. It’s as much about what to do, as it is about what not to do, and knowing the difference.
