Please join us for future issues, delivered via email each Friday. 

Since the Legacy Project was announced about three years ago, we’ve added seven new planning tools to an already full suite of succession planning resources. Our intent is to help farm families navigate the succession planning process with the greatest probability for success. Working together, we can achieve a better result from our succession planning efforts.

Most of the tools were designed to satisfy direct requests from our readers, or Legacy by Design customers and clients. You can download a full list of tools here

The right tool, especially in succession planning, will:

1.   Enhance communication
2.   Help to facilitate a smooth planning process
3.   Keep you, and the family, on track
4.   Increase the effectiveness of professional interactions
5.   Help you maintain a sense of control
6.   Provide a template for conversation
7.   Generate a list of completed and missing elements
8.   Ensure a comprehensive succession planning model
9.   Save money, time and energy
10. Confirm that you’re following a proven path to success
Please let us know if there’s something we’re missing. Contact me at .
