Only 17% of business owners successfully transition their business to a buyer or the next generation, so Beth is a member of what we call the 17% Club. Beth’s intentional exit strategy and motto “Proper Planning Prevents Poor Performance” helped her transition not once, but two times in her career. Listen now to hear tales from the 17% club, so you can successfully become a member someday!
