Your Business, Your Life, 5 Years, 5 Options | LAYC 91

Lift As You Climb

02-12-2023 • 20 mins

Welcome to Episode 91 of the Lift As You Climb podcast with your host, Isabel Alexander. In this episode, Isabel dives into a topic that many entrepreneurs eventually grapple with: what to do when you no longer love your business. With her signature insight and candor, she explores the five key options available to business owners at this crossroads.

Isabel reflects on the popular sentiment of "Take This JOB and Shove It" and how, as business owners, we can't simply quit our own companies. She delves into the challenges faced by women business owners, especially in light of personal responsibilities and the toll of running a business.

The five options Isabel discusses are:

1. **Stick It Out**: Some may choose to maintain the status quo and hope for a change, but is this the path to fulfillment?

2. **Just Quit**: The tempting notion of walking away entirely, but what are the complications and consequences?

3. **Transform**: Isabel's personal favorite—transform your role and your relationship with your business to unlock new opportunities.

4. **Scale**: Learn how to scale your business by first transforming your role within it.

5. **Sell Your Business**: When is the right time, and what preparations are needed to get the most value from your business?

Isabel shares her own experiences and the importance of emotional preparation when considering selling a business. She emphasizes the value of expert advice and seeking out peer groups to guide you through these important decisions.

Join Isabel in this thought-provoking episode as she helps you explore your options and make the best choice for your future.
