Whether you use a skills-based or chronological resume, you will still need to show that both your hard skills and workplace socialization are current. For example, you may have previously used productivity software designed for small businesses, which will likely be much different from enterprise software larger organizations use. Word your resume in the business language of the employer, and show them you can talk their kind of shop.
Though many of your skills will transfer, running your own business is still very different from working in an organization that employs hundreds or even thousands. You've been accustomed to being the boss, but now you are going to have to work on a team of equals and report to a supervisor. Show that you have the perspective to watch what the boss watches, need little direction to get things done, and can mentor younger employees. That is the language of leadership and will make your resume really stand out.
