If you have a successful business, would ever take it public? If so, why? If not, why not? I'd love to hear your thoughts.

I would do everything in my power to not go public, as soon as you do, your obligation to please changes from the customer to the stock holders.

Im so over working for companies making decisions JUST to please investors and reports. Companies who lay staff off for the books just to have a need to rehire staff again the next quarter.

Of course. IPOs usually go at higher multiples than selling it to a private buyer.
I guess if thats your exit strategy, and the company didnt matter to you anymore.
