It’s All in the Plan

Smart women business owners know that a solid plan leads to success. There’s the business plan you create when getting your business off the ground. There’s the constant planning that takes place as you adjust to changes in the marketplace and your business. Finally, there’s the plan you create when it’s time to move your business to the next level—or, perhaps, to the next owner. Numerous local resources exist to help you get your business off the ground, keep it going, and move it forward. Here, in our 2020 Coulee Region Women Business & Resource Directory, we seek to set you up with those connections and more. We’ll introduce you to 20 other businesswomen who provide important services, products and community connections. We offer an entire section of nonprofit resources that can help you and your employees succeed. We introduce you to women’s business groups and invite you into a web of community of businesswomen who can support, complement and inspire your business goals. In this issue, we’ll also teach you the ins and outs of succession planning, including whom you need on your planning team and what you need to consider—both when selling and buying a business. “Passing the Baton” on p. 6 helps you navigate the details of business succession, with advice from local experts. We hope you’ll find the Coulee Region Women Business & Resource Directory a useful, easy way to find the services you need in the Coulee Region. You can also find the directory online at www.crwmagazine. com. At Coulee Region Women, we’re happy to assist you in creating a plan that builds your business and your community connections.

Passing the Baton It’s never too early to think about succession planning. By Julie Nelson

If you are an employee at Finottes Nut and Chocolate Shop in La Crosse, for example, and you’re thinking about retirement, the process is straightforward. You pick your date, let the boss know and, at the appointed time, you gather your personal items, say goodbye and walk out the door. But if you’re Laurie Finn, and you own the shop, your actual retirement date is going to be much less predictable. It’s possible it will come a lot sooner than you think. “You never know when a buyer is going to come along,” says Ed Jaekel, a partner at JRM CPAs. Jaekel has seen business owners who are three to five years away from retirement suddenly have a buyer appear with a great offer to purchase. “I always advise people in these situations to take the offer, because you may not get one when you want it. It’s possible the economy will stall, or the next best thing will come along and make your business out of date. Also, if you turn down the offer, the buyer might purchase—and improve—one of your competitors, making it even harder for you to sell when the time comes.” Sometimes even a great business can’t find a buyer, and the owner ends up selling only the assets—the inventory and equipment—but is unable to get anything extra for the value of the business. For this reason, Jaekel recommends you look at your sale as the icing on the cake. The money will add some options to your retirement, but you should plan based on living with your savings and investments.

Plan for a successor

So how do you appeal to a potential buyer who could appear out of the blue? “Always operate as if your business is for sale,” says Jaekel. “Maximize your profits, your efficiencies, your systems and your processes. And have a solid financial statement so buyers can see exactly what they will be getting.” Having a buyer appear out of the blue is the best-case scenario for transferring your business. Here’s the worst: You are suddenly and unexpectedly unable to come to work, due to an accident, illness or even death. If you have employees or family members relying on this income, you will have a vested interest in making sure your business can continue without you. Sarah Fortune is an attorney with Hale, Skemp, Hanson, Skemp & Sleik. She says one of the best ways to ensure continuity for the worst-case scenario—and to be ready for a potential buyer in a positive scenario—is to give a key manager or other employee more responsibility. Then, when the time comes, they can step into your role almost seamlessly. If you’re concerned this employee could take all your expertise and strike out on their own to become a competitor, Fortune suggests drawing up a multi-year contract and/or a contract with a no-compete clause. These are all tactics to get the most money out of the sale of your business. However, if you’re Laurie Finn, and one of your daughters wants to take over the candy shop, your motives may Continued on page 15

be a little different. In this case, Finn will be more interested in making sure the business is in a good position to allow the daughter to succeed. Finn will want her daughter to gradually make more and more of the decisions. And, according to Jaekel, Finn should give the daughter the opportunity to fail. “Let her buy too much inventory, or spend too much on advertising. This will allow her to learn from her mistakes, and she will have more ownership of the outcome.” Fortune also recommends someone in Finn’s shoes in this imagined scenario resist the urge to stay on as a consultant. “Once you set your retirement date, get out of the way and allow the next person to make decisions and changes you would not have made. It’s their baby now.”

Assess your assets

As you step back to allow a successor to gain more experience, you’ll also have the benefit of getting a fresh look at the bigger picture. You can assess your profitability, your efficiency and your systems and potentially make the improvements that will make your business even more successful and attractive to a buyer. Take a look at your intellectual property, logos, trade secrets, specific practices or formulas and see what could be trademarked or copyrighted. These are assets that add value to your business. This is also a time to look at the number of hours you have been putting in. Many business owners work 60 hours a week or more because they love what they do. That’s great for you, but a potential buyer may not be excited about being a workaholic. If working long hours all year round is the only way you are able to bring home a salary, you may need to look at how that could change.

For those who are a partner in a relationship-based company such as a law firm, an accounting firm or an insurance company, your assets are your clients and your files. One way to keep the clients coming to your firm once you walk out the door is to build relationships between your clients and your partners. Bring in your co-workers on an aspect of the case. Refer to them as someone you rely on and with whom you work well. And it always helps to have a welcoming office staff. If your clients look forward to chatting with the receptionist, they’ll be more likely to want to come back, even if they don’t get to see you. If you are the CEO of a large corporation or the executive director of a nonprofit, succession planning is remarkably similar. The board of directors should be continually looking for people who could step into the role if need be, again with an eye on potentially grooming another employee who shares a passion for the mission.

Start planning now

Whether you are three years from retirement, five years or—like Laurie Finn—you want to keep at the job you love for another ten years or more, the experts all agree. The time to start your succession planning is now. crw Julie Nelson could have been in line to take over her father’s feed store/hardware store in Viroqua but instead chose a career in journalism. Now Julie is happy to be writing for Coulee Region Women and serving as the Community Engagement Coordinator for Great Rivers United Way.
