Leave a Legacy

RSS By: Kevin Spafford, Legacy Project

Kevin Spafford is Farm Journal’s succession planning expert for the Farm Journal Legacy Project.  He hosts the nationally-televised ‘Leave a Legacy’ TV, facilitates an ongoing series of workshops for farm families across the U.S., and is the author of Legacy by Design: Succession Planning for Agribusiness Owners.

A First Step on the Road to Permanence

Feb 26, 2010
The second episode of “Leave a Legacy” is in the can---recorded and ready for editing. As I pen this entry, I’m sitting at Midway in Chicago waiting for a plane, and recounting the preceding days. It’s been another whirlwind tour filled with rehearsals, presentations, meetings, tapings and study.  

The Farm Journal Legacy Project is an all-consuming labor of love. This outreach will change the world for each and every person involved… 
-  For those working on the inside---at Farm Journal Media, Pioneer and Legacy by Design…
-  For those who participate on an information level---viewers of AgDay/US Farm Report, readers of Farm Journal and Top Producer, net users at AgWeb, and workshop participants…
- And, obviously, for those families who choose to take a constructive role in creating and implementing a succession plan. 
Succession is a life-altering process. Some engagements can be as simple as an ownership transition and retirement planning. Others involve a complete remodel of a family’s financial security, legal foundation and business structure---in addition to the requisite ownership transition and leadership development. Either way, the benefits are innumerable and, with refinement, ‘succession’ becomes an effective method of business development---eventually permeating the fabric of the operation’s culture.
