But if you give in to the buyer's demands, you risk alienating family members who may feel the buyer is receiving an early inheritance. If possible, discuss a long-term, generational transition with the entire family and seek the advice of a professional consultant.
What to Expect in an Internet Service Providers, ISPs Business Sale
It's impossible to predict the emotional highs and lows you will experience during the sale of your internet service provider ISP business.
