- I prefer to buy the established profitable businesses where we can add value strategically with what we already own rather than go to the great effort of just knackering the whole team trying to do a turnaround.
- Whether you’re looking to exit or not, you should build to exit because it’s good for you as well.
- Make sure you haven’t got any operational role. Make sure anybody on your team, if you have another business, doesn’t have an operational role.
- You should keep an eye on the numbers because that’s what any buyer will scrutinize. So work. Think about what you’d want to buy. You need to build towards that.
