When starting your own business, the idea of it ending is usually far, far away from your thoughts. Why would you need to think of an exit strategy when you are just beginning? As an entrepreneur your focus is so fixated on getting your business and dream off the ground that not much else matters. But as we know planning is vital, whether it is to begin or end your small business. You may want to stay in the same business until you retire or you may want to build it up until you can sell it for a fortune, either way it is best practice to have an exit strategy planned early on.
