Episode 121: “Managing Through The Storm”

In this week’s episode, Tracy speaks with three great guests about their upcoming virtual seminar titled “Managing Through The Storm”.

Seminar Overview
Managing the family business, as well as the family and business relationships can feel like navigating through a storm. If this describes how you feel at times, you’re not alone.

Are you experiencing a strain on cash flow due to weather, lower commodity prices, feed shortages, trade issues and delivery delays and not sure how to fix it, or how to prepare for the discussion with your creditors?

Do you have trouble managing employees and family members and is poor communication among family members causing you stress?

Are you feeling overwhelmed with all the chaos that life has thrown at you?

If you answered any of these questions with a yes, then this seminar is for you. Through the information, stories and experience of the specialists, you will gain tips, tools and practices to help you navigate your storm with confidence and peace of mind while reducing stress for yourself and your family.



This seminar is to be held online February 25, 2021.
