Did You Know…
Baby Boomers own 50% of businesses in the U.S.?
And 10,000 of these baby boomers are retiring or otherwise leaving the businesses every single day! Ninety percent of these 10,000 baby boomers never even thought about a transition. They never uncovered the answers to the burning questions, “What happens if something happens to me? What happens to the kids? What if I want to sell the business? Who will run the business after me?”
It’s essential that these businesses don’t get caught off-guard, and that’s why Whitehall Group is here.
Are you prepared for the unexpected . . . or maybe even the expected?
