In this video with Entrepreneur Network partner Business Rockstars, 1-800-Dentist founder Fred Joyal breaks down quickly what a business owner should consider and do before selling a company.

When you sell a company for $10 million, you might only ever see $5 million or $8 million, depending on the terms of the deal and whether you meet certain benchmarks.
