Sixth and final installment in Rod’s agony aunt advisory series. This time he looks at selling a business. Top quote relates to founders involvement with a business post-sale;

The purchaser should want to put their stamp on the business, and should see that you are no longer critical on a daily basis. You should set the expectation you will stay around only long enough for a graceful handover. This may be as short as 1-3 months.

I don’t think Sam Morgan listened to that piece of advice Rod 😉
