Selling off portions of your business is fine, that’s just strictly business. On top of that, I do recognize that people pass on their business when they get too old and that’s natural as well.
What I’m talking about in this post is the issues with starting a business with a single goal that you’re working towards and that’s to be bought out by someone and nothing else. Not caring about customers or the impact it might cause. A single selfish gain from the owner to make a lot of money and then split.
