Help Your Clients Understand Employee Ownership Conversion

Help Your Clients Understand Employee Ownership Conversion

Wednesday, May 29, 2019 5:30pm to 6:30pm

Accountants, Attorneys, Financial Advisors, Small Business Lenders, Consultants!

Are some of your small business clients approaching retirement? Did you know that 85% of Boomer business owners don't have an exit plan? Did you know that 62% of Humboldt business owners who completed a survey about their exit plans said they were definitely or maybe going to try to sell their business to employees? 

What do you need to know to help them through that decision? Learn from the co-founder of a group that helps small businesses across the country navigate their conversion to employee ownership. 

Some day soon one of YOUR clients is going to want your help with this--get ready now! Stop by after work on May 29th for snacks or log on from your preferred location to join this virtual briefing. Come away with concrete information and your questions answered.

This will be a virtual webinar accessible from your home computer or from the SBDC conference room at the Prosperity Center. When you register you will receive a link to the Zoom video/audio conference.
