Some guidelines the CLA team provided in this episode include:

  • Talk with your accountant, attorney and your bonding company

  • Rely on an experienced team to guide the process
  • Define the separation of emotions, especially for family members Nicole shared that "80-90% of an owners' personal assets are tied into the business."  Knowing that such wealth and personal assets are tied into a business requires planning so that the years of hard work pay off for everyone involved.  Listen to gain insight into the initial stages of succession planning.
