Most of the steps you will take are, in fact, good business practice.
You never know when the opportunity for a sale might arise because an offer comes along that is too good to pass up. Grooming your business for sale takes time, which means that you need to get started well in advance. Your reward is a feeling of confidence that you can seize the interest of more qualified buyers quickly, and possibly get a better price. You will also know that you are passing on the business in the best possible condition.
