The Art of Selling Your Business:

Winning Strategies & Secret Hacks for Exiting on Top

Punch Above Your Weight Class When Selling Your Business

Freedom.

It’s the ability to do whatever you want, whenever you want. It’s the ultimate reward for selling your business. But selling a company can be confusing.

In John Warrillow’s latest book, The Art of Selling Your Business, he lays out a simple formula for attracting multiple acquirers and punching well above your weight class in a negotiation to sell your company.

The book is based on interviews he’s conducted for his podcast, Built to Sell Radio. Each week, John speaks to a founder who has recently sold their company. John analyzed hundreds of hours of tape — possibly the world’s most extensive collection of first-hand conversations with the sellers of privately held businesses — and summarized the smartest strategies and secret hacks of the most successful founders who’ve sold their businesses.

If your goal is to maximize the value of your business and sell it with the best deal terms possible, grab a copy of The Art of Selling Your Business today.
