2016-10-30 Getting The Family Business To The Next Generation with Henry Hutcheson & Ed Fulbright On Mastering Your Money Radio

Henry Hutcheson- Getting The Family Business To The Next Generation Interview 

Family businesses, like relatives, come in many shapes and sizes. More than 66 percent of all family businesses do not make it to the next generation.   Most family businesses begin with a single founder, who either saw an opportunity or simply took action to make ends meet. Maybe it was both. However, this can quickly evolve into a husband-and-wife team, or two brothers or sisters. Many family businesses are owned and run by women, who have the additional burden and conflict of being “mom” and the chief emotional support for the family. Then the next generation comes along, grows up among the hustle and bustle of their parents trying to build a business, helping out where possible, and one day finding that they are working in their parent’s business. Then the kids get married and bring in-laws into the business. Trusted and capable non-family employees are picked up along the way.

Joining us for our discussion on Getting The Family Business To The Next Generation is Henry Hutcheson who is in our Durham NC Studio.  Henry Hutcheson, comes from two renowned family businesses, Olan Mills Portrait Studios on his mother’s side and Peerless Woolen Mill on his father’s side. Henry has firsthand experience with many of the concerns that are unique to family businesses. Henry studied Psychology and has extensive business knowledge in the critical skills for working effectively with a family business. As a family business adviser and consultant, Henry can empathize with the family business and thus be more effective. Henry engages in a business mentoring and life coaching relationship with each family member and key stakeholders, and the scope of his work with the family and business is all encompassing. His latest book is Dirty Little Secrets of Family Business: Ensuring Success From One Generation To The Next.

Valerie K. Fields- Small Business Public Relations

Here’s an old saying:  “Advertising is what you pay for, publicity is what you pray for.”
This is a great ice breaker for entrepreneurs and PR practitioners who need to explain public relations.  It’s also a good starting point for the general public.  While there are dozens of good articles on this topic most people – even professionals who should know better- still don’t know the difference between advertising and public relations.

Joining us for our discussion on Small Business Public Relations is VALERIE K. FIELDS in our Durham, NC Studios.  Valerie “VK” Fields has worked in public relations for some of the world’s most well-known organizations including Walt Disney World Resort, McDonald’s Corporation Regional Headquarters and the Ronald McDonald Children’s Charities of North Carolina.

She also has been an entrepreneur for more than 15 years. She is founder of V.K. FIELDS & CO., an award-winning PR and copy-writing agency in Raleigh, NC.

2016-10-09 Sole Entrepreneur With Kimberly Palmer & Ed Fulbright On Mastering Your Money Radio

Kimberly Palmer- Sole Entrepreneur

When I started my CPA practice, I kept my full time job working for a technology company.  After working nights and weekends for three years, I decided to go full time into our business.  I was greeted with some doubters but I found most people to be wonderful supporters.  The one thing I had to remember is to ask for their support and help.  Very few people will help you unless you ask.

Joining us for our discussion on Sole Entrepreneur is Kimberly Palmer who is calling in from her Washington DC office.  She was the senior money editor at US News & World Report for nine years. She is an adjunct professor at American University, where she teaches a course on mastering social media. She has appeared on NBC’S TODAY, CNBC, and CNN.
