Business Continuity and Succession Planning

Protect your most valued asset

Protect your most valued asset

One of the greatest challenges facing a family business is properly planning for business succession. Business owners may be too busy dealing with everyday needs to consider the tough issues of succession planning, such as:

  • Who will be the next operations manager?
  • Do I want my spouse to own the business when I am gone, or do I want my spouse to be bought out?
  • Which of the children will get involved in the business?
  • What if my business partner dies?

The list of issues that business owners should consider is lengthy and the ability of a business to recover from an event is directly related to the degree of planning that has taken place before the event occurred.  

A business continuity plan is your company’s safety net and could make the difference between the business' survival or failure.

business owner.

Your business is only as strong as its employees. Employees contribute
to management, have a significant impact on sales, and may have a
special rapport with customers or creditors. In short, your employees are an integral part of the success of your business.
