A Complex Process - Simplified (Pt. 4)

Welcome to the final installment of our four-part series, "A Complex Process," where we've discussed why utilizing our process and experience is more beneficial than going it alone when selling your business. In this concluding chapter, we spend time diving into a critical aspect: conflict resolution.

Hardway: Backed into a Corner

Life is full of uncertainties, and when you're navigating the intricate landscape of selling your business, unexpected challenges can and will arise at a moment's notice. What happens when you're backed into a corner, facing issues that simple research can't resolve? A few examples are laid out below.

Things Can Go Wrong and They Can Go Wrong Quickly:

Major problems can materialize fast, catching you off guard and potentially derailing the entire deal. Usually, a product of postponing or avoidance of a minor issue early on. They can accumulate, turning into major roadblocks which will inevitably need to be handled. 

Funding Falls Through:

The financial backing the buyer was counting on suddenly disappears, leaving you scrambling to find an alternative.

Unmet Expectations:

If expectations weren't correctly set from the beginning, it can lead to misunderstandings and complications down the road.

Late Retrades:

Price negotiations can take unexpected turns late in the game, putting your deal at risk. 

Without the necessary know-how, finding a way out of these situations can be daunting, and the options may seem limited.
