DENVER BUSINESS JOURNAL - As the owner of a business in transition, you usually don't think first about the values you have accumulated during your adult life. As a baby boomer, your car, house, possessions and titles take a back seat to deeper, more important values such as family, faith and legacy.
In spite of all the attention paid to boomers, missing are three "hidden core values" that often re-emerge as they age, according to the book " ReFire Your Life: A Real Guide For Those Who Can't Retire or Don't Want To."
Nearly 75 percent of this generation received these values by growing up in poor, working-class or small-family-business homes.
When starting your business transition process, you should ponder these hidden core values: A strong sense of belonging, a drive to give something back, and the willingness to take risks.
Your soul searching should consider how they relate to your life as a whole, and how you can incorporate them into your upcoming business transition journey: http://bit.ly/1rd7118.
