Selling your business can be a challenging and emotional process. Making sure the succession is smooth for yourself, the buyer, and your employees is a top priority. The following trio of modules will discuss key issues for transferring ownership of your business. Feel free to work through the modules at your own pace. We recommend that you follow the path through the modules as they are presented; however, you are free to jump if there are certain areas of more interest to you.

The Seller’s section of this resource contains three complementary modules and case study. You will see some overlap between the Buyer and Seller sections; however, each trio of modules is specifically targeted to its own audience.
