E424: How to Sell Your Brand for 8 Figures with Josh Dittrich
We’ve done a whole series with ecommerce and Amazon FBA aggregators throughout the year, so I thought it would be a good idea to hear from someone who’s been on the other side of the transaction.
Josh Dittrich is an entrepreneur, exit advisor, and the founder of Branded Seller, a company that helps small-scale businesses raise their valuations and find the right aggregator to work with.
In this episode, Josh will be sharing his recent experience of going through the whole process of selling one of his businesses to an ecommerce aggregator. We’ll talk about how he ended up deciding to sell the business, how he found the right aggregators to reach out to, and how he took care of his employees during the transition.
Near the end of the episode, Josh will also give some specific and actionable advice on things you should do if you’re looking to secure that profitable exit in a few months or in a couple of years down the road.
