Small Business Owner? Thinking about an EXIT? You’re in the right place to learn how to Exit your business the same way I have done a dozen times.

This school is about real life. Real experience. Real Lessons. That I want my students to learn and prosper from.

This school is about real-life — real experiences — real lessons that I want my students to learn and prosper from.

My passion is to pass on these experiences and give you the knowledge to help run your life and business better, so you can understand the value and to Win Your Exit!
Business owners work too hard not to have an exit and most do not! An exit, though, is so much more than just a financial transaction on closing day. My courses in short powerful lessons will teach you how to make your business, desirable and buyable, and show you how to Win Your Exit when the time comes.

My name is Tom Hannon, and I was born to be an entrepreneur. At the age of 11, I was selling candy out of a trunk at baseball camp. I hustled jobs and developed business relationships before I ever graduated from high school. I have brought hustle, passion, and a thirst for knowledge into everything I have done in both my business and personal life. After watching my parents let corporate America get the best of them, I decided I was going to make my own destiny. Before I was 30, I had already acquired several businesses and sold them to an international company. I got the training of my life working with that company, and when they were sold a few years later, I went back into business for myself and proceeded to create a business that led to my second significant exit before I was 35. I have since started, acquired, and sold several more businesses, as featured on Built To Sell Radio, Tropical MBA, Daily Rewind and other Podcasts.

My natural progression during my career I thought was to go into business brokering. However, that world is not a place to help business owners, contrary to the job title. That business is about transactions, and I wanted to help business owners Win Their Exit, not just sell their business.

The time to help business owners is the day they start a business or several months or years before they sell, not when they show up at the broker’s door to sell. I have read just about every book I could find on businesses, I have studied everything about it, but more importantly, I lived it. I lived through taking a company from zero to millions in revenue, then to actual deals to exit that business. I dealt with large corporations and individuals. I sold a business for profit, health reasons, partnership issues, and many other things that all the books simply don’t tell you.

I am excited to share these stories and lessons with you.

Remember that Winning Your Exit is about so much more than a paycheck. In my case it meant restarting my life, living on a beach, building a baseball field, endurance sports, and exploring different passions, dreams, and industries.

What does it mean in your world? Let’s find out!
