The Business Transition Blog

Articles on Business Transition Planning

Last summer I spent many weeks at my cottage near Tobermory, Ontario writing The Business Transition Crisis. By the end of the summer the creative part was completed and then the real work began. Along the way I worked closely with my editor, Susan Chilton who is the sister and editor for David Chilton, author of The Wealthy Barber. When Susan was done putting me through the wringer, my publisher Don Bastian ratcheted things up even further.

At the time, it seemed to take much longer than I had expected to go through the process of researching, writing and publishing. Looking back, it happened quickly enough and some might say it’s been an overnight success. But in reality, it’s been years in the making.

For a few years I’ve been publishing a monthly article on Business Transition Planning and Succession Planning. You can review these articles at your liesure. I’ll start adding a few to the resources section of my website over the next few weeks. Right now you can check out the first seven that I’ve just posted.

If you’re thinking about transitioning away from your business over the next few years, you’ll find some great ideas and issues to consider on your journey. It’s a little like writing a book. It will seem painfully slow as you lead up to the execution of your transition, but then before you know it, you’ll be looking back and feeling pleased with your progress and accomplishment.
