Laura Gisborne has sold six companies, including The Art of Wine. The Art of Wine is a tasting room with a subscription-based wine club division. With $1MM in annual revenue, The Art of Wine was still a relatively small business, but when the lease came up for renewal Gisborne reasoned it was the perfect time to sell.
The Mortgage Reports founder, Dan Green capitalized on the internet traffic his site generated by selling leads to mortgage lenders. Within three years, Green crested a million dollars a year in annual revenue. When he decided to sell he quickly got three offers from the companies he was selling leads to.
