Smart people can and do make dumb decisions when selling their businesses. Don’t be one of them—and leave millions of dollars on the table in the process!

In Selling with Certainty, accomplished market maker and four-time author Terry Monroe shares stories of how successful businesspeople who unknowingly left millions of hard-earned dollars on the table. Successful business owners are successful for one reason. And that is because they are good at what they do and have done it for a long time. But when it comes time to sell their business more often than not, they are inept, because they don’t sell businesses full time for a living instead, they own and operate their successful business.

In Selling with Certainty, you’ll learn how to realistically assess your situation, deal with the business that you have built over the years and maximize the money you will receive when you do decide to cash out of the business.

Selling With Certainty

Having been both a buyer of businesses and a business owner and having owned over 40 different businesses Terry knows firsthand what a business owner goes through when they are thinking about selling their business and what it feels like to go through the process of selling one’s business.

His experience of selling over 800 businesses and working with over 1,000 business owners and buyers over the past 35 years gives him incredible insight of what really transpires between the business owner and their families and buyers of businesses.

Terry’s stories and advice is based on actual people and real-life situations and experienced firsthand experiences, and not from a book where the writer is thinking how a situation should be handled.
It has always been said that we learn from our failures not our successes, but the true sign of a successful individual is to be able to learn from someone else’s failures and not your own.
