Is What You’re Doing for a Living Not Your Passion?
Sell Now and Re-Discover Your Life
The most successful entrepreneurs in history are passionate about what they do. From Walt Disney, Steve Jobs, Mark Zuckerberg, Bill Gates to Richard Branson, these great entrepreneurs followed their passion. It was this drive that pushed them ahead of other businesses and made them industry leaders.
If you are a business owner, you appreciate this enthusiasm that helped you build your enterprise. With time, however, this drive might fizzle out, and you start running the venture routinely. After investing so much time and money, many entrepreneurs hang on even when there’s no passion. It is a risky way to run a business, and you might end up losing everything.
Is it Time to Sell?
If you’re no longer living out your passion for running your business, it’s time to consider selling it. It might be the most empowering decision you could ever make. When you are no longer motivated to risk and make scarf ices to stand out in your niche, selling makes a lot of sense.
Many entrepreneurs drive their businesses down by sticking around far too long. It’s understandable for anyone to suffer burnout with time. While you started the company with a lot of enthusiasm, it might reach a point when the venture no longer inspires you.
Many great businesses collapse when the owners outrun their motivation. It is the risk you also face if you don’t know when to quit. If you’re not living your passion, there’s a risk of poor decision making. In today’s highly competitive and fast-paced business landscape, you have to make timely decisions.
The contemporary business environment demands a lot more from business owners. You have to learn on go and make decisions on the fly. Any delay in the adoption of new technology or embracing new trends can work against your company.
Without passion for whatever you’re doing, your enterprise can quickly sink into oblivion. When living your passion, you can read the market trends and predict new trends. This is how some of the most successful businesses today such as Google, Microsoft, Apple, HP and others have continued to survive.
At the helm of these successful enterprises are passionate leaders who are ready to take risks. Passion is contagious, and these business leaders attract the best personnel to drive their vision. This commitment to a dream pushes them forward in a volatile business environment. When you’re in love with what you do, the idea of quitting never crosses your mind.
However, if this drive is no longer there, you won’t have the motivation to move forward and fight for your dream. At this point, selling your enterprise is a good idea.

I worked with Hello Exit for the sale of a business and everything went smoothly. The team was very hands-on and provided a lot of guidance throughout every part of the process. They took the time to get to know my business well and were able to communicate our operation effectively to potential buyers. The sale was a success and I couldn’t have done it without them.
Hello Exit was great working with me to help sell my software company. They made everything clear, were patient, never over pressured me, but kept a strong sense of urgency.

It was a pleasure working with Hello Exit and they have my most sincere recommendation. They bring a sophistication and etiquette that is very hard to find in the lower, lower middle market – outstanding preparation, excellent sell-side coaching, a rationale / unbiased disposition, and so on. In addition, they bring a powerful network to the conversation and can add value well beyond the transaction. I hope to work with Hello Exit on many more deals to come!
Hello Exit added tremendous value for our portfolio of companies. They made a complex sale process easier and significantly more efficient. We received 5 offers (two above ask) and were extremely happy with the outcome. As a serial trouble maker that has acquired 7 companies and sold 4 we will be using Hello Exit for future exits.
Hello Exit has built one of the best online business brokerages out there. As a buyer, the company has continuously provided us with acquisition targets that have been very well qualified. Every opportunity has fit directly into the criteria we’ve been looking for which has saved a ton of time on due diligence. If you want to get a jump start on your acquisition pipeline, it’s easy to recommend Hello Exit.
Hello Exit is one of the most knowledgeable business brokerages out there for tech & web businesses. We used they to buy a significant business operated by 15+ employees. Our work in diligence was substantially reduced given the strong & accurate information package he provided. All questions were proactively answered, all supporting data was there and presented in the right format, and everything was accurately represented. This saved us weeks of work! In discussions & negotiations, they played a fair role & helped resolve issues by understanding the issue from the perspective of both buyer & seller. With their knowledge and experience, they were able to make smart suggestions and helped everyone reach a common ground quickly. I would surely work with Hello Exit again. They are super!
What can I say other than Hello Exit delivered on everything they promised… and then some. At first, I didn’t believe it when they said he would sell my agency in a few months. But they were so passionate about working together, a part of me believed they would deliver. And they did. We had 3 offers in 30 days and went under contract with the highest offer. 3 months later we closed on the sale at the price they evaluated us on. During the entire process, their knowledge and experience helped immensely. Any time there was confusion or a hurdle that myself or the buyer had, the team stepped in and smoothed every over. Selling a business is one of the most invigorating yet stressful experience I’ve ever went through and I’m so grateful that I picked the right broker to help me through it. I’d use Hello Exit again in a heartbeat.
The Hello Exit team was great to work with. They helped increase our deal flow with strategic deals. If someone is looking to increase their targeted deal flow I would definitely recommend working with Hello Exit.
Hello Exit was awesome to work with on the deal. They provided great support and advice all through – from initial interest discussions, negotiations, contract closure to execution. They’re very prompt and proactive which sails the deal making through. They also provided great support and mediation help post transition on some key contract payout clauses, which is highly appreciated. I recommend Hello Exit highly to SaaS business owners and entrepreneurs.
I’ve known Dustin (Hello Exit’s Founder) for over 10 years, and actually acquired a SaaS company he founded. I’ve always found Dustin to be extremely sharp, fair and honest, reasonable to deal with, and the kind of person you would want to do business with again in the future (which is rare these days). I’m currently mentoring and incubating over 150 international startup companies, and have already talked with Dustin about bringing Hello Exit into these businesses to broker the exit once they are profitable and solidly into their momentum phase.
Hello Exit is one of the best and most trustworthy SaaS advisories and brokerages in the industry! If you run a SaaS business, and Hello Exit contacts you, you should definitely talk to them! Even if you decide not to sell, it will be a very worthwhile and fruitful conversation.
