Greg Caruso, Eddie Davis and Richard Stopa, partners at Harvest Business Advisors, sat down together to discuss the biggest mistakes sellers make when selling their business (and how to avoid them!).

Greg encourages business owners to start thinking and planning about selling their business BEFORE they actually are ready to sell.

Richard cautions against hiding information from potential sellers (or your business broker). Transparency and honest is critical for successful transaction.

Eddie observes how hard it can be for a seller to plan to sell or prepare the documentation because they are busy running their business.

Harvest Business Advisors works with sellers at different stages of readiness and can actually relieve the pressure on business owners and prepare a business to sell for the highest possible profit. We encourage you to contact us to discuss your unique situation – we’d be happy to help.
