Free Event: If We Huff and Puff, Will We Blow Your House Down?

In “The Three Little Pigs” the third one got it right! He built a solid foundation, one brick at a time to withstand the test of time. He made sure there was mortar holding it together.

Jolene BrownWe need the same in a family business – a right and experienced leader, specific and realistic management tools, and a solid foundation including legal documents to assure peace of mind.  Only then can we withstand the challenges and surprises that test or bring down a family business. Only then can we celebrate creating a profitable and productive business, worthy of transitioning to the next generation.

We’re excited to have Jolene Brown joining us to share her insight from her years of experience working with family-owned businesses from around the country. Jolene is a walking-talking spokesperson and champion for the people of agriculture. She's a farmer in Eastern Iowa, contributor to Successful Farming magazine’s popular family business column, author of two great books and recent inductee into the prestigious Speaker Hall of Fame. Her worldwide audiences appreciate her fun-filled spirit and valuable information. She's on a mission to share leading-edge best practices, appreciation, laughter and celebration to increase productivity, profitability and peace of mind.
