It seems that the middle an economic downturn is one of the best places to see clearly which aspects of your business are working and which aren’t. What if you could find that kind of clarity at the top of a market? Good news, you can! Having a board of advisors for your farm business can help steer you toward success. On January 25, Amy Wirtz of Family and Business Success and farmer Glen Newcomer will present a breakout session at the 2018 Top Producer Seminar on the value of having a board of advisors.

Creating a Board of Advisors sounds simple, and it is, but getting started can seem a bit daunting. Here are five tips for creating a board of advisors from the CEO Coach, Sara Beth Aubrey:
1. Decide On Your Objectives for Creating a BOA
2. Selection of BOA Members is Critical
3. Formally Ask and Explain the Time Commitment
4. Create Regular Contact
5. Give Value Back
