Everyone has seen the television shows and movies where the police are closing in on the antihero who quickly grabs his go-bag filled with cash, weapons and fake identifications and eludes his captures just in time. While I hope that you don’t have a go-bag like those movie characters, your business should have a "go-bag" of sorts when it comes to being prepared for an early exit.
Every CEO and business owner dreams of the unsolicited offer from a larger company that is looking to buy them out. The mentality behind this is that someone else has noticed what your business is doing and sees value in acquiring it. In today’s market this offer might be more of a negative omen rather than the dream scenario most hope for.
