Jolene Brown has spent years helping farm families work through serious business and relationship challenges.
Too often, she says, families base business decisions on emotions, personalities, dreams, and assumptions. This family-first business model leads to family problems and business issues.
That's why she advocates becoming a Business First Family who bases decisions on a mission, written goals, legal documents, and managed risks.
Putting the business first may help women shed stressful role.
Succession and transition are even more challenging to achieve in lean economic times. With lower profit margins, the younger generation will struggle to build enough net worth to buy out the owner generation.
Women are dumped on a lot, right? And it's stressful.
Grab your boots and head to the largest farmer-focused convention and trade show.
Make plans today for you and your family farm partners to attend.
Don Jonovic and Jolene Brown pull no punches on these planning predicaments.
