Periodic Meetings with Key Advisors
Unfortunately, many business owners only contact their key advisors in the case of an emergency. A wise business leader, however, will recognize the value of routine contact with key advisors. Keeping your key advisors “in the loop” will allow them to help you foresee and avoid potential pitfalls with proper planning and incorporation of appropriate protections. Invest in an Advisory Team that will work with you along the way – It will be worth it!
