Ways to Prep for Your Succession Plan 8. Determine your role post-sale. If you're handing the business off to one of your children or another family member, you likely won't be able to escape questions about the operation for long. Regardless of your relationship with the buyer, discuss with your successor what they need from you before your last day. It may be sensible for you to oversee operations for several months, or even years, before you officially hand over the business, depending on your successor's knowledge of and experience in the operation and the industry. 7. Develop a forward-looking business plan. Outlining the potential growth opportunities for your business in the future could be a strong selling point, especially if you're looking outside your family for the next owner. If you're in the early stages of succession planning, look to the future to see how you can be ahead of trends to continue differentiating your business.
