Selling a Lapel Pins Business

You've invested time, effort, and creativity into building your lapel pins business. Now it's time to put that same kind of focus into selling it.

It's a fact: Successful business sales take time.
(article continues below)

Although it takes hard work and dedication, if it's time to exit your lapel pins business there is a good chance you can sell it for a good price -- even in today's market.

Dealing with Your Emotions

Business sellers sometimes struggle to handle the emotions of a sale. Be prepared to experience everything from elation to remorse during the sale of your business. It's important to allow yourself time to process your emotions during your exit. However, when it comes to negotiating a successful deal, there is no room for your personal emotions. To keep the sale on track, you'll need to seek the advice of a broker or another objective third-party counselor.

Equipment and Inventory Concerns

Buyers typically perform an independent appraisal of your lapel pins business's real assets. Most sellers, however, conduct a pre-sale appraisal to gain an accurate gauge of asset value prior to negotiations. A professional appraisal is a necessity because it gives you the information you need to negotiate a sale price. A pre-listing appraisal also gives you the opportunity to document the condition of your lapel pins business's assets and possible even make repairs or upgrades to increase the total value of the operation.

Working with Appraisers

There is no substitute for a qualified appraisal in the sale of your lapel pins business. Leading industry appraisers equip sellers with a value gauge that can be accessed during negotiations. If you're disappointed with the appraiser's estimate of your company's worth, you have the option of seeking a second opinion. However, it's more often the case that you will need to adjust your expectations of your business's value to buyers.
