There are, according to Sam Kreamer of the Kreamer Law Firm, only three things you can do with your business: (a) you can run it forever (which no one has ever done - the "live forever plan" has turned out to be unsuccessful); (b) you can close it (which no one wants to do); or (c) someone else can own and run it after you no longer are able or after you no longer wish to do so.
