Thinking of selling your business? You owe it to yourself to listen to this conversation with Dan Schweiker about his business exit from China Mist Tea Brands, a company that he and his co-founder sold after 30 years growing the business into an international high end tea company, creating a new category along the way.

You will know Dan’s lessons learned about interviewing and hiring a professional investment banker to sell the business, how a company scrap book and community involvement helped build the brand and helped them sell it, and the importance of having life outside of the business for the day after the sale.

What You’ll Learn:
