Prepare for the Emotional Cost of Selling Your Business

Panel Discussion on Selling A Business

At Strategic M&A Advisors in Ridgeland, MS and Little Rock, AR we take the time to help our clients prepare for some of the confusing thoughts and feelings they’ll experience during the sale of their business.

If you’re planning to sell your business, then this post will help you survive the rollercoaster of emotions.

Why Selling Your Business Is an Emotional Ordeal

You’ve invested countless hours and dollars in your business. For many years, building your business has been the focus of your life. Growing your company has been at the center of all you’ve done.

All of a sudden, you don’t know what the next step is. The uncertainty is emotionally-draining and you may start to doubt whether letting go of your company is the right decision.

Selling your business is more than just a financial transition. It’s a radical change in how you use your time. It represents a major shift in your priorities just like getting married, having a baby, or going through a divorce.

Expect Some Unexpected Changes in Your Personality

Selling your business is a positive change, but it can cause a lot of anxiety. It’s perfectly normal to suffer some sudden and strange changes in your personality as a result. You may suddenly become more outspoken or more reserved, more fearful or more brazen; you may become more defensive and argumentative even with others in your life who have nothing to do with the sale.
