"Although I am not directly involved in the family business, my husband is 1/3 owner in the family farm and business along with his father and brother. Things are changing as we and his brother each have growing families and my father-in-law and mother-in-law are aging.
The Business Owner Summit opened our eyes to several very important issues that we as a family need to address in order to make sure that everyone is on the same page and has a clear understanding of what will happen in the future to make sure that plans are in place so that everyone and everything is taken care of.
My husband and his brother are third generation and we do not want anything to hinder the future operation and sustainablity of the business, as well as family relationships. We want the business to pass on to the forth generation some day." Brooke Hitchcock - Hitchcock Farms, Tennille, Georgia
