David Shavzin, The Value Track, and Bob Tankesley, Neri Capital (ProfitSense with Bill McDermott, Episode 23)
Host Bill McDermott is joined by David Shavzin of The Value Track and Bob Tankesley of Neri Capital. David and Bob advocate that the seller of a business must take the perspective of the prospective buyer. By doing so, a seller will better understand business valuation, planning for a successful exit, and how the sale process will unfold. ProfitSense with Bill McDermott is produced and broadcast by the North Fulton Studio of Business RadioX® in Alpharetta.
