13 Exits and a Lifetime of M&A Experience | Craig Dickens

E43:  Craig Dickens - Entrepreneur and CEO of JD Merit Investment Bank

Today, Todd Sullivan's guest is Craig Dickens, a serial entrepreneur with thirteen exits, who decided to start an investment bank to help demystify the M&A process and help fellow founders create the exits they deserve.

Craig is one of the investment bankers on the Exitwise platform, and we decided to have  on to share his particular expertise for guiding first time sellers to not leave money on the table when selling their companies. In today's discussion, we chat about what to watch out for with unsolicited offers. We talk about translating emotion into finance by educating our clients before and throughout the entire sale process.

And finally, we share why all business owners should have an investment banker on speed dial years before you're ready to sell your business. 

I hope you enjoy my conversation with Craig Dickens.
