In this episode of the Well-Oiled Operations™ podcast, Stacy explores the seller’s blueprint with Aleta Mechtel, uncovering the secrets behind successfully preparing a business for sale. This discussion delves deep into the strategies and systems Aleta implemented to sell her profitable educational enterprise. Aleta discusses the critical role of her well-structured leadership team and how detailed procedures and policies can significantly increase a business’s value. She stresses the importance of planning with the end goal in mind, advising aspiring sellers to start preparing years in advance.


Also in this episode:

  • Preparing for a business sale should begin well in advance, potentially years before the intended sale date.
  • Profitability is key in determining a business’s value, making attention to the bottom line crucial in the years leading up to a sale.
  • Structured policies and procedures and a strong leadership team that operates independently of the owner are pivotal elements that potential buyers seek.
  • A business owner must detach from being the face of the business, allowing for the company to continue functioning successfully post-transition.
