Business owners tend to overvalue their companies when it’s time to sell them, which can be a problem when a buyer is interested and both parties collide on how much the business really costs. To avoid this conflict, you must first see your business from a buyer’s perspective. It all starts with knowing the difference between your company’s value and price.
In this episode, I discuss the critical differences between value and price in the context of selling a business. I explain the importance of knowing your buyer’s perspective before, during, and after the sale. I share some of the questions buyers ask when they’re interested in your company. I also describe why SaaS companies aren’t valued for their profitability.
“A seller and buyer have a certain view on the value, and they don’t quite align.” – Adam Rundle
