Dealing with heartbreak is one of the hardest things to do. It can make you cry for days, weeks, or even months. It can leave you with sleepless nights. It can even lead to depression. There’s no shortcut to getting over heartbreak. Time heals all wounds. Then again, you can’t rely on time alone. You got to look for other ways to get over the situation. Here are 5 steps you should follow:

  1. Give yourself time to “grieve”

It’s not fun to grieve and cry, but it’s actually the most important part. Let go of the things that once hurt you until there’s nothing left for you to mourn about. Don’t keep it inside. You got to let it all out before you finally move to the next step.

  1. Be angry for a short while

Don’t stay bitter for a very long time because it’s like poison that can take away all the happiness you have left. After shedding all those tears, it’s time to think of the pain you went through. But make sure not to get obsessed with this stage. You don’t want to become a monster. If you feel that the anger has been around longer than intended, find another outlet. You can work or study harder and focus on your goals.

  1. Stay away from social media

Don’t even think about stalking him. You’ll be full of hatred if you keep on seeing his posts and compare yourself to the new woman. Stay away from social media especially if you have the tendency to stalk people. Don’t hurt yourself anymore. You don’t deserve it.

  1. Go out with friends

When you were in a relationship, your life revolved around your partner. Now that he’s gone, you realize that you still have friends who care for you. Going out with them distracts you. You also get to hear what others have to say about the heartbreak.

  1. Engage in activities you love

Even if you’re a workaholic, your job isn’t enough to keep you away from the heartbreak. Engage in other activities such as sports or dancing classes. You need anything that will keep you busy so you don’t think too much of the heartache. You’ll meet new friends and maybe a new guy.

You may be sad and down right now, but remember that it’s not the end of the world. Life is beautiful. Don’t dwell on your pain because there are people who love you. Don’t forget that you’re a great woman. It’s not your loss that he left you, but his. And don’t worry that your heart is broken right now. He’s not the one. Someone else is . . . and he will come at the right time.

Many entrepreneurs get into small business with the intention of making profit and increasing their economic welfare. However there are times when selling your business is actually the prudent thing to do. To attract potential buyers then there are right and wrong reasons which will make buyers interested in buying your business as discussed below.

Wrong reasons to sell your business

Once you’ve made up your mind to sell and several potential buyers have approached you with various offers. It is almost inevitable that one (if not all) will ask the reasons why you deemed it fit to sell your business. The most unattractive reply you could give to your potential buyer would be that you are tired with your business and that you need a break from its management. This would almost certainly make them lose interest in buying your business. This shows that unless you are selling your business for the right reasons, you are unlikely to find a buyer or if you do, you will not “Cash Out” on your business as you should.

Cash Out – Is Now the Right Time to Sell Your Business?

Right reasons to sell your business:

The following are some of the “tell tell” signs that you are ready to sell your business and are the right reasons which if you explain to your buyers they probably not be intimidated that they would be taking up another man’s poison.

  • Life changes: As an entrepreneur you may reach a life stage which may make you no longer as effective in managing your business. This could be reasons such as, you’ve reached your retirement age and just want to retreat to quite stress-free retirement age away from the world of commerce. Emotional or health issues which greatly undermine your ability to be as effective on management as you used to be.

  • Quest for a new Challenge: It could be the passion that drove you towards establishing and running your business has shifted towards a new venture. You are more interested in a different line of business all together and you are no longer interested in being in your current line of business. This is very critical since every successful entrepreneur knows that the key to success in business is to love what you are doing. Should you develop a new love for some other venture then it’s best to quit your current venture rather than strain yourself with it: this would be bad since it will only serve to kill your business and reduce the amount you would have cashed out had you left while it was still in best of states.

  • Favorable Market Conditions: You may be in a business where the current prevailing market conditions are very favorable and the number of potential buyers quite many. This may be a good time to sell your business before it reaches its “best before” date. Meaning in every industry there may be seasons of high business activities, and if at any point you were thinking of selling your business then this would be the right times.

  • Getting a Once in a Lifetime unexpected offer: You may be approached may a bigger market player in your industry to buy your business. Such as in acquisition offers, it is wise to think this deal through since being in the same industry with an overly aggressive and competitive bigger player. It may be prudent to cash out since sometimes refusal to cash out may lead to bad competitive practices by the bigger player which will greatly undermine your profit margin especially if you are a sma`ll business.

  • When the industry demands growth of you business: There may come a time when the market trend necessitates your business to grow bigger in order to become more effective in the market. This may come at a time when you lack the capital necessary or you don’t have the management skills to run a bigger business. It would be prudent to sell out and perhaps remain as one of its employees as you let buyers with more capital and management skills take over.

Make Employees understand your reasons

Ensure that you let your employees know at the right stage of your intentions to sell your business. Some employees are quite loyal to their employers and changing management without notice may lead to them feeling not valued and this may lead to retaliation against the new management or employee motivation declining.
