THE STAND UP WARRIOR

As entrepreneurs, we spend a lot of time planning our success. How will we get there? What will it take? What should I build my business on? We focus on the building and maintaining portion of our careers or businesses. What about our exit plan? What happens when we’ve reached the end of the road for our business or career? It’s just as important to have an exit plan, as it is anything else in your business.

Eric Gilboord shares his insight on creating a strong exit plan and the payoffs it can provide if done properly. Eric has worked with hundreds of small businesses over the course of 22 years! If that’s not impressive enough, Eric is also an author and a columnist, with his newest book being “Moving Forward: Why You’re Stuck and What to Do About it.”
