“I have worked with a lot of family businesses, some of them producing millions of dollars a year in revenue and supporting many family members as well as employing a good number of people in the community,” says Kyle Golding, CEO and Chief Strategic Idealist for The Golding Group, a strategy, business process and communication integration think tank, so he knows through helping others that not having a plan could lead to failure.

“I come from a farming family, so I also know firsthand what happens when the head of a family business is no longer part of that business,” he said. “Without a plan in place, the business has a huge potential to suffer or fail.” That failure can cost a lot of people their jobs and affect the community as well. But a well-developed succession plan can create a much higher likelihood of the business continuing on successfully.

A succession plan helps transition a business to others for when the business owner is ready to leave the business – retirement, disability or an unexpected event such as serious illness or death. Whatever the reason, every business owner should have a plan in place to not only help transition the business but also help take full advantage of the value of the business. While vital, Golding said succession planning doesn’t have to be complicated.

“The process of adding succession planning, within a family or not, is not a complicated process for an operating business with a business plan, standard operating procedures and a defined structure in place,” he said. “In this scenario, succession planning is an extension of the current structure. For a small business or startup, there would be more work building the succession planning into the other necessary strategic planning.

“Just like your insurance policy, succession planning and crisis management protocols are essential (items) you need to have in place but hope you never need to use”.

#SpeakerSeries, Beers And Branding, Entrepreneur, Lifestyle, Live Event, Marketing

The 2nd DD Audio #SpeakerSeries for 2019 features a Craft Beer Entrepreneur panel with discussion lead by Kyle Golding, CEO of The Golding Group plus audience Questions and Answers 10/16/19 at Project 3810.

Food, drinks and door prizes like DD Audio Headphones and 3 months of free co-working at Project 3810, LLC. BONUS: Possible sneak peek at the Broke Brewing taproom at Project 3810 (depending on construction permits, licensing, etc….)

DD Audio is so much more than just car stereo speakers. The #SpeakerSeries is a live event for the creative community. Twice a year, DD Audio will invite interesting and exciting people to speak with audiences about turning a passion into a business utilizing marketing tactics, technology and innovative approaches to starting or running a small business, personal brand or passion project.

This time our focus is turning homebrewing into a “real” business with three breweries telling their story and answering audience questions.

The newest entry to Oklahoma Craft brewing isn’t officially open yet. Broke Brewing is the purest form of beer startup that is just about ready to launch any day now. This is Master Brewer Mike Groshong‘s first venture after spending time brewing for many of the established brands in Oklahoma.

Vortex Alley Brewing is a neighborhood nano-brewery in Ponca City, OK. VAB is comprised of four friends who love brewing and love sharing our passion of brewing with others.

Angry Scotsman Brewing is one of Oklahoma City’s newest craft breweries. Initially launched from the Brewers Union, ASB now has a full taproom in downtown OKC. ASB is served in bars and liquor stores across Oklahoma.

Golding is an award-winning creative professional with 30+ years of business experience. He’s the 2019-20 Oklahoma Venture Forum Chairman, a serial entrepreneur along with being the co-host of the #NeoMarketing podcast and the #SaturdayMorningHustle podcast + social media video series.

Join us for a casual but informative conversation about inspired ideas and practical execution from the panel and Golding along with Q/A with the audience.

There will be plenty of time for networking before the #SpeakerSeries program with Q/A afterward. Everyone will also have the opportunity to tour the Project 3810 facility and meet some of the people involved in the office, warehouse and co-working space for entrepreneurs, start-ups and small businesses. This “might” include the new taproom from Broke Brewing (dependent on factors outside our control).

What separates an Entrepreneur from a Wantrepreneur? Is it the best idea, the most hustle or something else? If you own a small business or want to someday, then you need to know the best strategies, insights and tactics to be successful without burning yourself out. Do you have what it takes to be the boss? Our CEO and Chief Strategic Idealist Kyle Golding is here to help you figure it out. VIDEO LINK ON YOUTUBE

Kyle Golding: I’m often asked for advice “to my younger self” about the entrepreneurial journey. Here are a few topics I hit in this video:

* When you start having success, that doesn’t mean everything will be this easy.
* Pay closer attention to the How and Why of that early success. Don’t assume you will always understand what worked and what didn’t, so write it down. That will serve you better than your memory.
* Don’t get a big head, but do keep your confidence.
* It’s OK to ignore anyone telling you that you can’t do something, but you can’t ignore reality. You need both.
* Find ways to move forward, but with logic and experience because talent only gets you so far.
* Drop the idea that this is how life will be forever.
* Success comes from change, so be ready to change with the times to keep being successful.
* Finally, don’t be afraid of others having success around you. Their wins don’t take away from yours. Jealousy is a waste of time and effort. Let then hate on you, but don’t return it. Keep focused on your goals.

Thank you to the Better Business Bureau of Central Oklahoma for the invitation to kick-off the 2019 season of Trust Talks.
