Hey all, I'm completing sale of my online business ( not business assets ). Due diligence is done, contracts are ready to sign, just one problem. I'm well known "businessman" in my town and I've just received messages from my team that media is looking for more information about this deal ( company is private. ) I can't find person(s) who leaked information that my business is up for sale, ughh this is frustrating. I'm trying to protect my privacy as much as I can being business owner. I knew that local media will publish something about me and my business sale due to press releases, but never thought they'll try to pay someone to get exact details about sale. I don't want to become a target ( paranoia? maybe. ) because of windfall from my business sale. What steps would you take to protect yourself from media?
