Financial Planner Distills His Exit Planning Strategy in New Book

Garrett Hurley “Releases Getting Out Gracefully!” with ForbesBooks

New York Aug. 6, 2019 – Garrett Hurley, founder of Brix Partners today announced the publication of Getting Out Gracefully! How to Responsibly Exit the Business You’ve Spent Your Life Building (available now). The book is published with ForbesBooks, the exclusive business book publishing imprint of Forbes.

As the world approaches the greatest transfer of wealth in history, Garrett Hurley is asking entrepreneurs to consider what a graceful transition looks like. In his new book, Hurley speaks not only to the baby boomers on the precipice of retirement but to all of those hoping to live a second act on their own terms. From not paying a dollar more than you owe in taxes to giving back to the community and building a purpose, Hurley’s book lends insights garnered from his career working with high-net-worth individuals.

Getting Out Gracefully! is divided into three parts: Creating Wealth, Increasing Wealth, and Getting Out Gracefully. In each section, Hurley grounds the conversation in the reality of the clients with whom he has worked. Additionally, each chapter concludes with homework for the reader.

“I consider getting out gracefully the requisite capstone to a life well-lived, and I’ve written this book for leaders who share this belief,” Hurley said.
