Looking beyond the immediate future

As I help a business grow it never ceases to surprise me how many owners have failed to give succession planning a seconds thought!
When I ask; where do you see this going after success? The blank looks and disregard for reality is astounding. Truth is that we are all going to die – some sooner – some later, but I can assure you without any doubt that it WILL happen. If all your hard work gets buried with you is that okay with you?
Why not just stop now, go out get drunk and spend everything before the kids notice.
Planning is so important but it has to be done while your still alive – Sorry.
