Everyone has at least one lesson they learned the hard way that they wish they would have known before joining or starting a family business. Good or bad, happy or sad, our panelists will discuss those things that a crystal ball might have helped them with along the way.
- Steve Harmon - second generation President of Spartan Logistics. We'll find out what advice he gave his own son when he officially joined the family business and what Steve wishes he'd known - and maybe had done differently - when he joined Spartan 20+ years ago.
- Angela Petra - Founder & CEO of Together & Company and Sweet Carrot. She will let us in on the ups and downs of her family business journey and lessons she learned along the way.
- Donovan Wahl is a second generation family member of Classic Plumbing who recently decided to leave the family business. Donovan will discuss why she chose to enter - and exit - and the things she wishes she'd have known from the start.
