Preparing for What's Next
The decision to sell your business and personal coaching service can't be made without adequate consideration of what will happen after the sale. many sellers find themselves ill-equipped to handle life after their business and fail to understand that their future plans can influence the sale process. In today's market, many buyers expect seller financing - a concession that might not be a possibility for sellers whose next step requires the entire proceeds at the time of the sale.
Should I Hire a Business Broker?
When selling a business and personal coaching service, you have two choices: Hire a broker to facilitate the sale or perform the sale unassisted. Is there a cost associated with hiring a broker?

Finding Business & Personal Coaching Service Buyers
Qualified business and personal coaching service buyers come from a range of sources and backgrounds. Avoid pigeon-holing your search to a single buyer category.

Sellers should also recognize the value of promoting their sale in trusted business networks, carefully balancing the need for confidentiality with the promotional potential of their contact base.
