For sellers who are willing to perform adequate sale preparation, the numbers make gliders and sailplanes businesses a solid investment for qualified buyers in the business-for-sale marketplace.
Dealing with Your Emotions
Business sellers sometimes struggle to handle the emotions of a sale. You probably have good reasons for selling your gliders and sailplanes business now, but that doesn't make the emotions you will experience any easier. Instead of feeling guilty about your emotions, take the time to process them with a mentor or friend. At the same time, it's helpful to consult with people who can help limit the influence of your emotions on negotiations and other aspects of the sale process.
Leveraging Industry Connections
There are a lot of different places to look for gliders and sailplanes business buyers. To advertise your sale to the widest possible audience, consider a listing on BizBuySell.com or other top online business-for-sale listing sites. More focused prospects are typically found within industry networks. The downside of industry networks is that it leaves your company vulnerable to exploitation by competitors. Even though you can expand your prospect base by shouting it from the rooftops, it's probably wise to limit the release of information to the people you trust in the industry.
It's not unusual for gliders and sailplanes business sellers to feel overwhelmed when they negotiate the sale of their business. Negotiation is a chess game, best played with the resources and backend support of a negotiation team. A negotiation team comprised of trusted advisors and senior business leaders is essential in helping you devise a winning negotiation strategy. More importantly, a negotiation team can serve as a sounding board -- an objective presence that prohibits your personal emotions from clouding your judgment or sabotaging your efforts to negotiate a successful deal.
