No matter how certain our futures appear, more certain is that our careers will end at some point. With that certainty in mind, succession planning should be an essential part of your business plan. Unfortunately, it’s easy to put off thinking about how to transition your business, even though business struggles, an owner’s failing health and the demise of a key manager can force that transition. Right now, is the single best time to begin succession planning. Spend quality time with Alan Friedman, CPA, of Friedman, Kanneberg & Co. and Jaimie Blackman Wealth Manager & Succession Planner with MoneyCapsules, for a meaningful discussion on why succession planning can’t -and shouldn’t-wait.

You can reserve your seat  today, to be held at the NAMM Member Center in the lobby of the Anaheim Convention Center. Email Richard Rejino at, subject line “NPF Round Table at 2016 NAMM Show,” with your name, store name, telephone, mobile phone and email address. Space is limited.
