E388: Selling Your Business is Simpler than You Think

For most ecommerce sellers, the end goal is to build a solid brand and eventually sell your business. But that’s often easier said than done, and I’ve heard a lot of nightmare stories. 

That being said, Lesley Johnson has an entirely different experience, having just sold her business at 3.6x without any serious headache whatsoever.

Today, I’ll be talking to Lesley about how she got into ecommerce, what EcomCrew Premium meant for her brand’s growth, and the process of selling her business from start to finish.

Lesley also shares how much she’s learned in the process and her plans of putting her expanded knowledge base to good use.
