Questions about Business Retirement Planning
De-risk your Business: What does that even mean?
For starters, what percentage of your net worth is concentrated in your business? If you are like most owners, it is above 80%. When so much of your net worth is concentrated in your business, think of what could happen if something went wrong. What effect would a lawsuit, fraudulent or not, have on your business? How would your bankers, employees, suppliers, react? What would be the personal toil on your health? De-risking your business means managing your assets in way that keeps the bulk of your net worth protected from potential threats.
Creating an exit and/or continuation plan is usually an afterthought. Should it be discussed now?
Absolutely. You have spent time creating and building your business, so why wouldn’t you spend time planning how it could continue without you – or how you might exit it. We believe that managing the beginning is as important as managing the end, and doing so can help take away stress and future uncertainty. Plan for the future so you can enjoy today.
No matter your industry, a business is a fragile and volatile thing to own and having a Front Porch Session to discuss your options will be a helpful experience
