If someone offered to buy your business

If someone wanted to buy your business and offered enough money that you would sell, what would you do next?

I had that happen this past summer, it took two seconds for me to think about it and I'VE NEVER BEEN HAPPIER.
I'm looking for a 48" walk behind that i will put in the back of a pick up and be a super scrub.

John

I'm interested in knowing how the dollar amount was calculated? Is it price per lawn, total year end rev, what?
