No Regrets: Book Review
I have the book because Darren Hardy wrote the forward, and I really enjoy his books and daily video blogs, so I decided to read No Regrets, and I’m glad I did; it’s more than I thought.
The book starts with how to develop your ‘Why, What, When and Won’t’ list. There are half a dozen starter questions for each of these ‘W’s.’ Will a sale be good for you, for your customers, for your staff? Are you ready for the emotions associated with a sale? Should you sell, or should you buy for growth? He then goes into the importance of choosing a valuation method, and getting your A Team together—Accountant, Attorney, Advisor. He then goes into more specifics such as presale planning, putting the word out about the sale, and controlling the desire to take the first offer!
I was pleasantly surprised at how he approached this topic. There is a lot of repetition (wordy) in the various topics. That said, each chapter has a workbook-style section to capture your thoughts and help you prepare. Every business owner should read this, whether you’re considering to sell now or not. – CMW
