Recently, I attended a workshop and met an individual with whom I was interested in doing business. I loved the service she offered and expressed my interest in attending her upcoming classes. She assured me by placing my name on her sign-in sheet that she would send me information. I was so excited and ready to buy now! That was six weeks ago; I have yet to hear a word. By Teri Karjala

In search of a great exit: Part II
It’s the ultimate goal of an entrepreneurial venture – a good exit. Yet the odds are against the entrepreneur – most ventures fail.  It often is a harder journey than expected.  Getting to a good exit typically requires a bold vision, the right team, persistence, many pivots, hard work, some luck and much more.  For those on the right track, however, it’s never too early to prepare for an exit.
