But it's not just about internal readiness; Chris also touched on how external factors, such as inflation and interest rates, influence the timing and success of selling your business successfully.

One of Chris's recent successes shines a light on the dynamic nature of the market, even amid high interest rates, proving there's always an appetite for well-positioned businesses.

As he often says, "The best businesses are bought, not sold."
