Who can you talk to about the decisions you must make . . .

- Your management team who have an interest in it e.g. careers, bonuses, job?

- Your advisors who have an interest in you making a deal either through a success fee or billable hours?

- Your spouse who may have a hidden agenda?


You are alone. Then, what happens after the deal when you go from being the CEO to 3rd in line at Starbucks?
