Selling a Business


Selling a Guitar Instruction Business

The business-for-sale marketplace has experienced no shortage of uncertainty over the past several years. But guitar instruction businesses haven't heard the news and are reporting steady action on the business-for-sale market.

It's a fact: Successful business sales take time.

Armed with a deliberate selling strategy, sellers of guitar instruction businesses are finding qualified buyers, even in today's tough market.

Negotiation 101

As a business seller, you have to be at the top of your negotiating game. More often than not, the person with the most knowledge will come out on top in a guitar instruction business negotiation. But before you can negotiate effectively, you need to have a clear sense of your minimum sale requirements. If you lack clarity about your goals, you're guaranteed to fall short of achieving of them. Consult with a broker, advisor, or negotiation team to clarify your expectations and devise a negotiation strategy.

Pre-Sale Checklist

There is a lot of work that needs to be done before you're ready to sell your guitar instruction business. Perhaps the most important pre-sale consideration is to right-size your expectations to the realities of the market. Once your expectations are in the ballpark, you can move on to making your business presentable to prospective buyers.

Benefits of Third-Party Assistance

Rarely, if ever, do owners sell a guitar instruction business without outside assistance. The enlistment of a qualified business broker is an excellent first step. Additionally, you may want to hire professionals for legal, valuation and other functions before you put your business on the market. The early recruitment of external resources reduces your risk and results in a more predictable final outcome.
