How well our business performs depends on the state of our mind. When we feel positive and good about ourselves we find answers to challenges. When we feel low, irritable or generally out of sorts we often make poor decisions. What is it that determines whether we feel upbeat and courageous or uncertain and fearful?
Selling a business after years of sweat and toil building it up is to put it mildly difficult. When faced with the actuality of letting go the exiting owner can feel threatened. Such fears are not logical. In our rational mind we know it’s time to move on but the absolute finality of no longer having a life full of activity and being the centre of attention can cause the exiting owner to panic internally.
