“Some agency owners don’t realize that a buyer will require them to stay on for a while. So, it all starts as part of their mid to long range planning, that’s best done when it’s not – rushed or when there’s an urgent need. Know your Vision for the company and plan your exit three to five years in advance. That means, start talking to me now…” – MS
