Overcoming Barriers to Selling a Legacy Business

Jonathan, a 73-year-old entrepreneur, found himself at a challenging juncture in his life. After 35 years of successfully running his beloved pet store, he decided it was time to retire and sell his business. However, the journey towards this transition was far from smooth. His attempts to find suitable resources such as business brokers, financial advisors, attorneys, or support from the SBA led to frustration. His situation reflects a common dilemma for many senior entrepreneurs who struggle to untangle the process of a business sale.

Despite his determination, Jonathan’s efforts to utilize traditional methods for selling his business often left him feeling more disheartened than hopeful. This prolonged uncertainty and inefficiency took a toll on Jonathan’s optimism, making his dream of retirement seem elusive. Jonathan soldiered on and found the Mavrek software on the internet. He realized he could get the process started without help and then could add his CPA as a team member to provide additional support. The platform promised a more straightforward approach to selling his business, offering digital tools and a structured process that was user friendly — exactly what Jonathan had been searching for to overcome the barriers in his path.
