Sometimes life gets in the way after you start a business. Some people have found themselves wondering if their lives would be better off if they sold everything and retired early.

You could be facing financial issues. You could be ready to move onto the next chapter of your life. It does not matter what your reasons are. There comes a point when you have to begin to question whether you can still hold onto the company before the joy goes by the wayside.

How do you know you are ready to sell?

1) It becomes a challenge when life through you some unexpected situations. You might have gotten to the point where you cannot focus on the business due to external issues. You want to be there. The business is your baby, after all. However, life is what happens when you are busy making other plans.

You may feel overwhelmed due to a family illness. There could be an expected death or divorce happening right now. You have no control over what happens outside of yourself. This is one red flag where you may want to consider selling, especially if you have enough money to retire early.

2) Do you spend more time thinking about your "golden years" than you do the company? Everyone goes through that on the occasion. However, if you spend your time doing that more than paying attention to the company, then maybe it is time to sell.

3) Everyone hits a wall when it comes to creation and new ideas. We all go through it. It is a necessary evil if you are a creative person. There is a difference between having a creative block every so often and having a block all the time.

A lack of ideas could be an indication you are ready to move on. I know it is hard. None of us like to walk away from something we love.

There comes a time when the well of ideas will run dry. You might not have the innovation or motivation to keep going. It might be time to sell, though if your heart is not in it anymore.

4) How much money are you spending right now in your business? Is it more or less than it used to be? You have nothing to worry about if you are spending less than you did when you first opened.

However, if you are spending more money now than you might want to consider the option. Competition is one sore spot for companies. Some companies do not have the money to stay in the race, especially when there are more innovative ideas happening.

Sometimes it is not worth the money to spend on a makeover if you feel the writing is on the wall.

5) Do you have an offer floating around that you find is too good to pass up? The person could offer you something more than what your business is valued at currently. It happens a lot.

People are watching all the time. Someone may have had their eye on your company for a while now, and you not even know it.


The writing could be on the wall here too. They like your business. They have the money to take it to places you cannot. Fate could be telling you to sell.

6) Did you recently get presented with a new opportunity from someone else? I am not talking about a swing and a miss here. You might want to consider doing it if the deal sounds great.

It might mean less time at the office and more time at home, all while collecting a very good paycheck. You combine that with the last red flag and you have a pretty sweet deal.
