Relax. This is your process. You're probably here because you have arrived at a crossroads. The answer you are looking for is not so obvious and you need some advice. Perhaps a term sheet arrived on your desk and the numbers look interesting. Suppose your children aren't interested in joining the company after college. Maybe your largest competitor was closed down for tax fraud. You need someone to help you sort out the implications and find the right course of action.
