Eight months ago, we unveiled the results of our ground-breaking research that was carried out by business psychologist Hazel Carter- Showell on behalf of Clarion Wealth Planning, called Enough Now!

Hazel conducted in depth interviews with 18 successful business owners over an 18-month period.

We commissioned the research to find out why owners who had recently sold their businesses felt that the time was right, and to discover what emotional impact selling a business has on an individual.

The results were enlightening.

We launched the research findings at an intimate drinks reception at King Street Townhouse in Manchester city centre on a wintery November night. During the evening, we were joined by former international cricketer, Michael Vaughan, who spoke candidly about his career in cricket and his decision to retire from the sport.



The honest, captivating and emotive talks from our guests shared one overarching message – There comes a point when it is just time to exit and move on to the next chapter.

Since completing the research, we have been using it to improve the business sale journey for our clients and it has been extremely well received.
