I love membership websites and I love SELLING membership websites - today’s guest is Jason Yelowitz, the guy that helped me sell one of my first membership websites for 7-figures!
Quiet Light Brokerage is where Jason is the best in the business at selling subscription and membership-based businesses!
Today, Jason goes into the process of selling your membership business and why you should! If you’re just starting out - Jason tells you what you can do form the beginning to make it a business that would be attractive to buyers if you ever decided to sell!
Jason Yelowitz says the #1 thing to do in your business is to make it easily transferable.

Jason said there’s a few more things you should start doing right now:
It’s okay and totally normal to feel a little bit of an emptiness when you sell this business.
You go from all kinds of business and chaos, to quiet.
90%+ percent of the time people are super happy that they sold when they did! There is a reason you made the call to sell in the first place.
That emptiness leaves room for you to open new doors!
