As an entrepreneur, have you given much thought to your exit plan? Are you not only capturing wealth but also putting the right things in place to preserve your legacy? 

In this episode, Elizabeth Ledoux shares her wealth of knowledge on business transitions. With over three decades of experience, Elizabeth helps entrepreneurs start their business transition journey. 

Elizabeth Ledoux is the founder and CEO of the Transition Strategists, an international consultancy that helps owners of private and family businesses to maximize the odds of successful business transitions. 

Key topics that Bill and Elizabeth explore in this episode: 

- Exit strategies for business owners.

- Why some entrepreneurs prioritize revenue or valuation over exit planning and impact, but may struggle with purpose and fulfillment in their businesses.

- Family business ownership and passing on a legacy to the next generation.

- The importance of starting with the "why, who, what, and when" during conflict resolution, rather than jumping to "how much" or "how."

- Fairly distributing profits among multiple investors.

- How business owners can identify their objectives and create a strategy for their exit. 

- The importance of purpose and fulfillment in life, rather than just wealth or time.

- Encouraging entrepreneurs to consider their personal values and goals in their business decisions, including philanthropy and family legacy.
