It is estimated that there are 9 million small business owners in the United States born between 1946 and 1965 and every 57 seconds one of them turns 65, according to a recent New York Times Business News article. That means over 1000 of these business owners turning 65 every day. All of them will transition out of their businesses some day in the future, yet according to a study conducted by White Horse Advisors and Vistage International only about thirteen percent have made a deliberate plan of how this will happen and have built a sellable business.
