Retirement: How Do I Get Out of Here

Retirement: How Do I Get Out of Here
Entrepreneurs have a responsibility to develop a continuity plan for when they decide it’s time to retire.

When you get to a certain point in your career, as a business owner, you should start thinking about a succession plan. Even if you feel like you’re nowhere near your entrepreneurial sunset, planning for what’s next provides a little peace of mind.

The way we see it, there are three paths to consider when planning for retirement. You can shut it down and cash in your chips, work until you drop, or devise a plan for someone else to take over the reins. Join us this week as we discuss our own business’ futures and the best way to transition into the next chapter of your life.

Rusty Compass
Some might find scotch inaccessible due to its acquired, peaty taste. We offer you the Rusty Compass as an introduction (or reintroduction) to bourbon’s cousin in hopes of extending your palate. It’s similar to an Old Fashioned, albeit a bit smokier, and the cherry liqueur rounds it out for a nice finish. And if you don’t like it, don’t give up; taste buds are supposed to evolve every seven years or something, right?


  • 1 1/2 ounces Compass Box The Peat Monster scotch
  • 3/4 ounce Drambuie
  • 1/2 ounce Heering cherry liqueur
  • Garnish: orange peel


  1. Add the scotch, Drambuie, and Heering into a mixing glass with ice and stir until well-chilled.
  2. Strain into a cocktail glass.
  3. Garnish with an orange peel.
