Hi, I’m Don McLaughlin


Even though we haven’t met, I bet I know a few things about you if you’re reading this…


  • You have achieved a certain level of success in your business, but often feel like a slave to it
  • Your friends and peers look at you with envy because you make running a business look easy, but deep down you are starting to burn out, feel alone and wish you had a second you to take over
  • You love your family, yet you constantly feel torn because they often come second to the business and you regret missing or not being fully present at key moments 
  • You feel trapped in a business you once loved and still crave the freedom that you thought the business would bring 
  • You’re frustrated because you thought becoming successful in the business would make your life better, but instead you’re buried by the never ending pressure and challenges in the business, your health or most important relationships
  • You are considering selling in the next few years, but fear that you don’t how best to prepare the business to get what you think it’s worth
  • At times you feel good about the business and try to convince yourself it’s all okay, yet deep down you’re running on fumes and you know this isn’t a strategic way to grow and successfully exit your business

If any (or all) of these describe you, I have news for you:


I get you. I’ve been in your shoes. And I’m here to tell you, there is a better way.



  • You rediscover passion and drive for your business, and this drive propels you to improve the business like never before
  • You know precisely which areas of your business to improve to increase the value of the business the most
  • You disconnect your mind from the business at the end of each day, even with the inevitable challenges and setbacks
  • You feel energized and engaged on a daily basis, and deliver your best in ways that cultivates a high performance culture
  • Your team takes more and more ownership for improving the business and their contributions to it
  • You create laser-like focus on a detailed plan to develop the highest growth potential areas of the business
  •  You prioritize and schedule time to be fully present for key moments with your friends and loved ones, and regularly do those things that recharge you the most
  •  You handle the inherent stress of your business with ease, and feel like you’re in a state of flow dealing masterfully with one demanding situation after the next 
  • You work steadily toward a compelling vision for the future of the business and your personal life long after you exit the business

 The 5 Million Dollar Lesson


I've spent my 25-year career driven to succeed at higher and higher levels. By the age of 35 I’d been on the fast track to law firm partnership and served as a senior corporate lawyer advising the C-suite at a Fortune 500. Soon thereafter I launched a legal consulting and tech firm to help Fortune 500 companies better analyze and manage sensitive electronic data. The business took off and just 18 months after launch, I turned down a $2.5M acquisition offer from a top tier consulting firm. Two years later I turned down a $5M offer from another firm, intent on growing the business much larger. I was running full tilt, all the time.

Until I flamed out and hit rock bottom, on the floor of a luxurious hotel room at the age of 42. Immediately everything in the business and my personal life was in jeopardy.


The Dream Exit Mission

Here are some startling statistics:

  • 48% of Business Owners Who Want to Sell Have No Exit Strategy
  • Only 20 - 33% of business are ever successfully sold
  • 75% of business owners who do sell are unhappy with the deal 12 months later
  • 50% of all buy-sell transactions fall apart during the Due Diligence process
  • Less than 1 in 3 Businesses listed with a selling price over $2,500,000 ever sell

Aren't these a bit alarming, given how much of our net worth is tied up in our business?

They should be for all busines owners because the truth is: planning your exit and selling your business is perhaps the most challenging part of any entreneprenuer's journey…

But way too many business owners think that they have plenty of time to successfully exit and that they need to work EVEN harder in order to build enough value to sell. (Spoiler: they’re dead wrong).

I created the Dream Exit Collective to support as many entrepreneurs as possible, so they can exit on top without the suffering that came with my success.

The Dream Exit Mentoring Program

A proven system and complete framework to build maximum value in a business, along with the essential lifestyle practices necessary to exit on top without burning out.
