Anyone exited from their venture? I am on the process of exiting. It is a bit overwhelming to figure out handling money, capital gains, tax impact, pay off what you can. How did you handle this? Any suggestions or wisdom you can share? It is not in 100 mil but a lot for a small guy who can be totally financially independent and even much more.

congrats! I don’t have too much advice but would definitely advise consulting a tax professional if you haven’t done so already

Depending on your area, I can recommend a great wealth manager and tax team that we recommend when my firm handles a venture exit. Feel free to PM.

My husband has had two exits. Sharing his recommendations: 1) find a trusted tax professional 2) hold your money for a year or so until you get a handle on what it means for your life, what you can afford in your new normal and what you want to do next. Too often he sees people squander it (cars, watches, houses) before they really grasp how they can deploy it into investments to create generational wealth, a dream next venture or a lifestyle they’ve been thoughtful about. 3) celebrate with close friends — not distant. You will suddenly inevitably have more “friends” and people asking for you to angel invest (be cautious).

You should find a tax professional and a financial advisor in your area, it's definitely a lot and you will need help to figure out how to structure it

No experience in exit but just make sure all the people(accountants. Lawyers, etc.) you hire do not take much through crazy fees and billings. If you are not good with personal finance it is time to learn it very quickly. You would want to have more control on your finances. Start hanging and interviewing the right people who have gone through this and get advice.
