Bicycle riders appreciate the importance of avoiding headwinds on a long ride, especially as they approach the end. A headwind causes a rider to either expend more effort or take more time to arrive at a destination. When a rider is already tired, neither option is appealing.
A bike race and owning a business are remarkably similar when it comes to headwinds. As we anticipate the end of our business ownership journeys, the headwinds we face today require us to devote more effort or time to exit our business in style.
