“Finishing Big Means Finishing Happy”

Bo Burlingham 

"No two exit experiences are exactly alike.  Some people wind up happy with the process and satisfied with the way it turned out while others look back on it as a nightmare.  The question I hope to answer in this book is why.  What did the people with "good" exits do differently from those who'd had "bad" exits?"  Bo Burlingham, author of "Finish Big: How Great Entrepreneurs Exit Their Companies On Top"

When pioneering business journalist and Inc. magazine editor at large Bo Burlingham wrote Small Giants, it became an instant classic for its original take on a common business problem-how to handle the pressure to grow.

Bo Burlingham, our keynote speaker for this year's "We Mean Business Forum", will talk about a more common problem - how to exit your company well!​
