The Silver Fox Advisors are presenting a webinar to answer that question, review the elements that a good plan addresses, and how to construct and use a multiyear Business Plan.
The webinar will be presented by a panel consisting of two bankers with over 50 years of commercial and SBA lending experience, a CPA who specializes in appraises businesses, and a former CFO and Business Operating Executive. All have helped their clients raise capital, as well as, assisted business owners grow their businesses.
The webinar reminds us how our businesses are rudderless without a business plan. It is like taking a road trip without a roadmap or GPS. We may or may not reach the destination we intended in the most effective way. Has your leadership team bought into the desired destination and more importantly, agreed on how to get there? The webinar will discuss how to use the planning session as a team-building process, the only way to allocate capital, and truly define what success means for your team.
By embracing the elements presented throughout the webinar, you will gain confidence that you can reach your business goals.
Greetings from your Silver Fox Advisors – 2021 has certainly begun with a BANG! As I write this newsletter, we are experiencing the coldest winter air mass in decades. The records are not yet in the books. But suffice it to say, it is cold in Houston!! The process to get COVID vaccinations continues with more and more of our friends and neighbors finding providers to administer the shots. Plus, the business climate is changing too as owners make critical decisions about their plans for the new year.
In this edition there are several announcements and pointers to share with you for this month.
We have two important downloads for you. First, the Greater Houston Partnership issued its economic outlook in January. You will find this information helpful as you finalize any business plans for 2021.
Next we have an excerpt from the IRS outlining the tax credits for employers that have been extended under the CARES Act. Please take a look at this important information that could impact your business tax picture.
Both handouts are available for download by clicking the button below.
We are honored to have a special presentation for our monthly Lunch and Learn coming up February 25th at Noon. Mr. Chris Manske will be presenting. Chris is a wealth manager, running one of the largest funds in Houston. He has written a best-selling book titled “The Prepared Investor”.
