I've written a 30-page booklet entitled "Selling Your Business While Avoiding Costly Mistakes." It walks you through a logical step-by-step process to maximize value when selling.

To request a copy, email me at I'll send you a digital copy.

Angie, interview a few local brokers. Don't waste money on an appraisal. It will sell for a multiple of earnings (2-4 depending on several factors). If you manage and do not perform the services it will be worth more (opens up to a lot more buyers). Make sure you have solid financials including what you do with cash. If you are the brand it will be worth more - if this is a rent-a-chair model where the individual stylists are the draw with be be worth much less. Good luck
