Business Breakfast Bytes, from the Fox Cities Chamber, Focuses on Exit Planning in January

Published Friday, December 23, 2016

The Fox Cities Chamber’s monthly morning educational program, Business Breakfast Bytes, will provide exit planning education to attendees at the January morning session.


Are you a business owner whose retirement plan is selling the business or part of the business? According to Pepperdine University’s Graziadio School of Business, approximately 70% of small businesses that sell do not receive the return they were expecting, or could have received, when selling their business investments due to lack of an exit plan strategy. Getting your money back of out your business investments requires a process and execution of strategies.


The upcoming January Business Breakfast Byte session will feature a panel of experts that will provide education regarding the critical components of a successful exit strategy and will be facilitated by a Certified Exit Planning Advisor (CEPA).


Kevin Eismann, CEPA, JD, MBA, Epiphany Law, will lead the session and facilitate the powerhouse panel of experts, which will include: Paul Northway, Executive Vice President, American National Bank Fox Cities, Pam W. Schneider, CPA, LL.M, JD, CMA, Director of Estate Planning, WIPFLI and David W. Johnston, MBA, Financial Representative, Principal Financial Group.


Attendees will receive education that will help them understand what critical decisions need to be made for a successful exit from your business.


Session facilitator Kevin Eismann shared the importance for attending this upcoming session and obtaining an understanding for a strategic exit plan, “any business owner who wants to control how and when they exit their business needs an exit plan to maximize the amount they receive.”
