Combined, these tools provide invaluable insight into the process of preparing a business for sale, finding the right buyers, and staging the sale itself.

Throughout the book, Sharon Lechter’s wisdom anchors each chapter with a “Mentoring Corner” section providing forward-thinking entrepreneurs with the perspective they need to take control of their business’ futures and exit rich. Seiler Tucker’s brilliant twofold approach to selling your business for maximum profit combines two of the most powerful elements of her M&A toolkit: the “ST GPS Exit Model™” and Seiler Tucker’s “6 P Method™.” Combined, these tools provide invaluable insight into the process of preparing a business for sale, finding the right buyers, and staging the sale itself. Michelle’s exclusive techniques have proven successful in many industries and across multiple business platforms. In Exit Rich, you will get a step-by-step blueprint for maximizing your business profits, as you learn how to evaluate your business, when to sell it, and how to work with the top business authorities to make that happen.
