Episode 126: “How To Transition Plan" w/Brent VanParys

In this week’s episode, Tracy speaks to Brent VanParys about “How To Transition Plan”.

As farmers, we all know that we should have a transition plan in place; however, once we move past our fears and concerns for the majority, it’s still unclear how to proceed.

So, how exactly does a farm family start, create, and implement a transition plan? If you have ever asked this question and found yourself wondering about the answer, this episode is for you.

In this episode, Tracy and Brent chat about:
  • The challenges families face when doing transition planning and Brent shares some of the biggest stumbling blocks that farm families face.
  • Brent walks us through the process step by step, including how and where to find an advisor and the significant role that a qualified advisor plays.
  • Where do you start? What are the different “stages” of planning? Brent spends the perfect amount of time walking our audience through each and every phase of transition planning.
  • Then they chat about the good stuff. What comes out of this entire transition planning. They speak about results and implementation.
  • Brent shares some impactful words of wisdom with farm families about transition planning.

By the end of this episode, you will understand what transition planning is, how you get started, and how exactly a farm family begins on the transition planning journey.
