Small business owners gathered on November 8th for the Don’t Miss Your Exit Seminar presented by Lommen Abdo Law Firm in conjunction with Upsize Minnesota Magazine. The seminar’s goal was to help small business owners chart their company’s value and to map out whether to convert their equity into cash or safely pass their company along to family or co-owners. Over a hundred people attended the seminar, which was held at a family business: Elsie’s Restaurant, Bar & Bowling Center in northeast Minneapolis.
