Tomorrow I’ll be signing away my company as it is the final day of the acquisition process.

The sale is not life changing, but it makes it so I don’t “have” to work again and can live comfortably off interest.

This is not my first acquisition but it’s the largest.

I have an earn out period. But ultimately I’m expected to hand my roles over to the very capable people at the new company. I will have nothing to do very soon.

This sale was a unique one. The company was only 3 years old and due diligence on the sale took six months (1/6th of the company’s life was just the process of selling it).

Yet still, I am feeling a bit emotional about it. The butterflies of not knowing what’s next, the doubts that I may not be able to top this performance.

My exit amount is a drop in the bucket compared to the fine folks here. What is your secret about handling post exit blues?

What do you want to do with your time?

I want to start or acquire something and sell it for 10 times this amount on the next market upswing in 4-5 years. What thing do I want to do? Still not
100% certain.

Sharing your story in detail, for starters.

I start or buy companies, grow them and often sell them. 1/4th of the time I succeed. In this case, I’ve succeeded and I’m exhausted and the tank is empty.

I am a software developer so I can focus on higher multiple businesses.

Do you want to do that because you like the end goal (example: money) . Or do you just legitimately enjoy the process or find it fulfilling?
