It’s a hidden art form, and that’s basically how it’s constructed. Because we weren’t going to play for 20 minutes perfectly, all three of us. Keep in mind that slides are bullet points–not paragraphs.
Most entrepreneurs wonder why after they have set up their business, it seems to stall after a few good years. They seem to get stuck. It seems like the more effort they put in, the more the business seems to stagnate. Their major mistake is that they try to establish their business with the same strategies they used when they started the business.

It may be difficult for you to see what your dentist sees when looking at an x-ray. Don’t let that bother you. Remember that your dentist went to dental school to learn how to interpret these x-rays. And also remember, it is the interpretation of the x-ray that you are paying for, not just the x-ray itself. That’s why you want a dentist’s opinion of a problem (that’s why you seek care from car mechanics, electricians, plumbers, doctors, accountants, and the list goes on and on). Fortunately you do not need to be an expert in every field, you just need to know someone who is.
Rick Rickerten is a managing partner at Pine Creek Partners, a private equity firm, which purchases small businesses. As a former investment banker, he has worked on many buying, and selling transactions, and offers an inside look at the process. He claims many family-owned small company entrepreneurs are unprepared for succession plans. He cites a 2003 American Family Business survey, which found that although 88% of business owners expected to keep the firm in the family, only a third of the businesses made it to the second generation. Two thirds were either closed, or sold. He attests that selling the business is a better option, then closing it.

Progressive rock music had started to come into America, and you were getting Scott Mooney out of New York, WXMR, or whatever it was, would play “Pictures At An Exhibition” in its entirety in the middle of the day.
