It is filled with angst; losses; second thoughts; and differing opinions. It isn't easy and it isn't fun and it is why most franchises don't do it. Most franchises look for a quick fix to stop the bleeding or to placate critics. That isn't a plan. That is a semi-selfish act to make you feel good as an owner or leader.
