I’ve sold two businesses. As I build my next one, here’s what I’ll do from the beginning to make it easier to sell later.
This year I sold The Write Life, an online business I’d built mostly as a side project over the last eight years. This post explains why I sold it, what the process was like, and what I’m building next.
