    Denise Logan is the founder and speaker at Chase What Matters. She has a background as a lawyer, social worker, and business owner. She knows that to business owners, selling a business is more than a transaction. To them, it is an emotionally fraught period of transition, filled with unexpected highs and lows, with no clear vision of what waits at the end for them and their family.
    She has provided advanced training to advisors employed by some of the world’s largest financial institutions, law firms and accounting firms, helping their clients successfully transition their businesses to new owners. And she is the author of The Seller’s Journey.
    In this episode, we discuss:
    ·     Denise’s start in law and what she learned about opening her own firm and exiting the businesses the wrong way
    ·     When to start thinking of developing an exit strategy and how to develop a timeline
    ·     Why knowing how to talk to a business broker can get you what you want when exiting a business, such as the wealth from the sale
    ·     How to make the journey to retiring a happy one
    I hope you will find this episode as exciting and informative as I have. Denise knows exactly how to exit a business the right way by experiencing what not to do herself.
