Exit Strategies for the Business Owner Video Training Conference


This two-hour teleconference addresses business succession under several different scenarios.

Wife as Business Owner

A wife in her second marriage after the death of her first husband, and with her current husband’s consent, wants the children of her first marriage to inherit the business but needs planning flexibility should they prove incapable of running the company.  In another scenario, the same wife wants to keep an unrelated employee on board to partner with her children, who will inherit the business but might not have all the skills to keep it going successfully.

Three Business-Owner Brothers

Brothers want to protect their company against the consequences of one wanting to leave the business, one in a third marriage with a much younger wife who has minor children, and one in a same-sex union that is not recognized by the state. Panelists address the liabilities arising from these factors and suggest solutions to guarantee that the concerns of all interested parties are met. The use of life insurance as a planning tool will be discussed in all scenarios, and audience participants can ask questions following the discussion of each scenario.

Attendees will learn how to:

  • Craft a business exit strategy
  • Structure buy-out plans to meet the needs of all interested parties
  • Plan for same-sex unions, children from multiple marriages, and other unique circumstances
  • Use life insurance as a funding tool in business exit plans
