We Are Here To Simplify The Process

As a business owner, you know that implementing the right succession plan is easier said than done. There are many things to consider when placing your company under new leadership. For example, you’re probably thinking about:

  • The person you want to take over: Do they align with the values you founded your company on? Do they have a similar business mindset as you? Do they have the right experience to run your business effectively?
  • What you want to do about trade secrets: How much does your workforce know? How much should the person that’s going to replace you know? Should you include a non-compete to protect your trade secrets in your succession plan?
  • What will your new role in the company be: Are you still going to play an active role in the business even though you’re not running it? Are you going to leave the business entirely?
  • Where you want your business to be in the future: Are you hoping a new leader will bring new ideas? Do you want to ensure your operations stay the same?
