Selling a business—especially one that’s been grown from the ground up—is a huge decision. While the financial implications loom large, the personal implications are equally significant—and can’t be overlooked.  

For our second installation in the Life After Selling a Business series, we interviewed three members of the TIGER 21 community who went through an exit. Transitioning to a New Identity & Sense of Purpose shares their thoughts on the challenges, opportunities, issues, and emotions they experienced surrounding their identity and sense of purpose after the sale.

The report also presents four recommendations for entrepreneurs who might find themselves in similar circumstances, wondering, “What’s next?”
