Jessica Fialkovich is a Business Exit Expert, Author, Speaker, and Small Business Advocate. When she sold her first business a decade ago, she had no idea where to start. Fortunately, she was able to exit successfully and then buy her next business — a business brokerage office.

For ten years she has built her Transworld Business Advisors franchise to be the fastest growing and most successful business brokerage firm in the U.S. But she realized that most business owners that decide to sell are not prepared, and although hundreds of experts will teach you how to start a business, how to grow one — very few will teach you how to sell.

In founding her education firm, Exit Factor, she decided to pull back the curtain about how the business sales process works and give buyers and sellers the tools to successfully (and profitability) complete a transaction. She is an entrepreneur at heart and successfully built and sold two startups, along with my husband and business partner, Al.

When not at work you her find in the mountains exploring with Al and our dogs (Sailor and Moose), spending time with her new son, Brix, or attending as many Springsteen shows as she possibly can.
