Planning Successfully – The Do’s and Don’ts of Selling Your Business - Part 2

On this episode an interview with Rett Peaden.

Representations and Warranties / Indemnification  What are these?  Why should a seller be concerned?  Personal liability

Real Estate  Own / Rent  Different holding company?  Selling the real estate with the operating business?

Trade Secrets / Intellectual Property  Does your business have these? Almost certainly to some extent.  How are these being protected?

Third-Party Contracts  Suppliers, distributors, subcontractors, customers, etc.  Do you have written contracts? Well-written?  Are these, assignable, terminable, renewable?

More about our guest Rett Peaden:

Rett’s practice focuses on helping the owners of closely-held businesses and professional services firms exit their businesses, whether that involves selling the business or transferring it to the next generation. Getting a business onto a solid footing with regard to succession planning is essential, and Rett is well-versed in sophisticated tax strategies and entity structuring techniques that may be needed. He will also advise on and guide clients through strategic acquisitions to grow their own businesses. Rett regularly counsels clients on corporate, partnership, and related tax-planning matters, including the negotiation and preparation of mergers and acquisitions agreements, the drafting of shareholders agreements, the formation of limited partnerships and limited liability companies, the structuring of inbound investment opportunities for foreign nationals, the creation and operation of private foundations and public charities, and the review and drafting of executive compensation agreements. In connection with advising the owners of closely-held businesses, Rett has developed a particular interest in the taxation of pass-through entities such as S-Corporations, partnerships, and trusts.

Preserving legacy. The estate planning side of the practice, often done for the owners of closely held businesses, is highly personal, involving an individual’s legacy and the achievements of a lifetime. Rett’s purpose is to help his clients prepare for the future, provide for their families, and accomplish their long-term personal and charitable goals. In doing so, he works to develop plans that are well thought out and emphasize preserving wealth from unnecessary taxes and unanticipated risks. He knows how to take family dynamics into account, and draws insights from his work in business exit-planning and trust and estate administration to help families plan with foresight to avoid problems that could happen later on. Rett is often called upon by other professionals to advise them on the complicated income and transfer tax issues that can arise in the context of trusts and estates. On the trust and estate administration side of the practice, Rett works in both contested and uncontested matters. He assists survivors in managing their inherited wealth, and often continues to serve their families and family businesses as a trusted advisor on the basis of the confidence he inspires in them.

“I want to help my clients achieve their goals and attain the best possible results given their unique circumstances.” – Rett Peaden

Amorino Interview with Ashley Manager at Atlanta Lenox Square

Created in 2002 by two childhood friends, Cristiano Sereni and Paolo Benassi, Amorino was born in the heart of Paris on Ile St Louis. The two founders' passion is highlighted in their values : exacting standards of quality, consistency, pleasure and flavor, as well as the cosy atmosphere in their shops. Paolo Benassi : "Our objective is to make the highest quality gelato as naturally as possible with no artificial colours or flavorings". Very soon their success allowed them to open more stores in many prestigious locations. The crowds in front of their shops are very much a part of the summer scene in various capitals. Cristiano Sereni : " greatest satisfaction is allowing people to discover, through Amorino, the magic of authentic traditional Italian gelato... it's part of my home, my native culture". The creation of each new flavor of gelato starts with the most rigorous selection of sourced ingredients, combined with the patience and skill of our highly trained chefs. We, at Amorino, are fully conscious of the requirements that are needed to make perfect gelato and we won't rush that delicate process. For each new recipe, we push ourselves to maximise the flavor and taste. How? By simply using organic and natural products, by sourcing our ingredients directly from reputable suppliers and by ensuring that we oversee every stage of the production process. In 2005, Cristiano Sereni and Paolo Benassi were able to centralize their gelato production which allowed them to combine their valuable know-how with new techniques from the drawing board to actual production of each flavor. Paolo Benassi "We insist on keeping a close eye on the production of our gelato to thus be able to guarantee the highest standard of quality to all our customers. In order to achieve this consistency, our products arrive at each shop ready to be served, this avoids the risk of product alteration and we can guarantee that our customers will enjoy the same experience regardless of where they go to buy it". Cristiano Sereni " Our gelato and sorbets are churned everyday in typical Italian fashion under the very watchful eyes of our chefs. Our recipes take into account the needed for the gelato to mature, to allow each flavor to develop to its full potential. We use only the freshest free range organic eggs and the highest grade whole milk. Absolutely no colouring agent or artificial flavors will be found in our gelato - this is one of Amorino's fundamental principles".

Brief Description of Product or Service: overcomeHER is a soon-to-be nonprofit organization that is designed to be a network for women. Our core mission is to create a community of women who collectively stand together, to change the world.

Today's society simply does not promote collaboration or unity among women. Instead, women are constantly fed negative news, stories, and images that do quite the opposite.

overcomeHER was created as not just another organization that is trying to empower women; our goal is to unify ALL women and create a cultural change! Upon our launch, we started the #overcomeHERcampaign where women from all walks of life shared their stories and testimonies as we believe with vulnerability, comes strength.

We strive to create authentic events and products that encourage servant leadership among women. Our events are not meant to be a one-time stop, but a place to feel at home in which our members can truly grow and become the best “HER”. Our sole duty is to lead by example so that all women can become their best in every aspect of life: career, lifestyle, relationship and spiritual paths.
