Planning Successfully – Restrictive Agreements - Non-compete, Non-solicitation and Non-Disclosure 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

00:07 Intro: Broadcasting live from the Pro Business Channel Studios in Atlanta, Georgia, it's time for Capital Club Radio brought to you by FLOCK Specialty Finance. Please welcome your host, Chairman and CEO, Michael Flock.

00:24 Michael Flock: Good morning and welcome to Capital Club Radio. We are delighted today to have one of our most distinguished investors of FLOCK, Tom Fricke. Tom is a successful CEO and leader in business, and also his personal life. He's got a very engaging story about how he's developed this philosophy of balanced leadership. And he did that through several years in some very important companies like HMSHost, where he was CEO. It's a North American and market leader in airport and turnpike concessions. Revenues of $2.5 billion dollars. He was also CEO of Cartridge World, the largest retailer of re-manufactured and refilled ink cartridges. He was also VP of Asset Protection at Home Depot, and Chief Administrative Officer at Giant Eagle, and held multiple senior positions at Pepsi.

01:23 MF: Recently, he's transitioned from kinda the pure corporate world to one of advising. He has a company now called Fricke Consulting, and he is currently working with Morgan Stanley Private Equity on acquisitions in food services. He's also a strategic advisor to the board of a spa and wellness center company, and now also working closely with an e-commerce business platform that is entering a new vertical. Tom is a graduate of the US Naval Academy, and also obtained his MBA from Stanford University. So Tom, tell me about, with all these interesting experiences you've had, from the Navy to corporate and now as an entrepreneur and a consultant to some start-up companies, how did you develop this theory or this philosophy of balanced leadership?

02:13 Tom Fricke: Well, first of all, it's great to be here, Michael, so thank you for the great introduction. I guess a couple of ways. Number one, when you're in turnaround roles, you tend to get forced into the leadership crucible relatively quickly. And in my case, it started early. When you go to the Naval Academy, that is a big part of your education,

David Windecher, The Windecher Firm, Author of  “The American Dream : HisStory in the Making” and Former Guest on Atlanta Legal Experts Appears on New CBS Reality T.V. Show - Hunted About Hunted Hunted follows nine teams of two in a real-life manhunt as they attempt the nearly impossible task of disappearing in today’s vast digital world as highly skilled investigators combine state-of-the-art tracking methods with traditional tactics to pursue and catch them. From searching their targets’ homes and scouring their internet and cell phone histories, to identifying behavioral patterns, Hunters in the field and Command Center investigators work together to identify clues to potential hiding places and collaborators that can ultimately lead to capture. Will the anxiety of being fugitives on the run cause teams to make a critical error, or will they be able to stay off the grid long enough to avoid being found within 100,000 square miles of the southeastern United States? A grand prize of $250,000 will be awarded to each team that successfully evades being caught for up to 28 days.

David Windecher grew up impoverished in the streets of Miami.  Surrounded by rampant crime and little opportunity, David chose a life of vice and violence out of desperation.

David was first arrested at age eleven.  Over the following eight years, David was further seduced by a dark street life racked with violence, drugs and money.  What started as desperate measures to feed his family of six turned into a criminal lifestyle.  Windecher joined a gang, sold dope, built and masterminded a crime ring and was arrested 13 times. David Lee Windecher risked his life and the lives of his family to leave the gang.  He beat the self-imposed negative cycle of street life through sheer will and commitment to be better. He vanquished self-doubt and conquered his deep fears of fitting in at school to pursue an education.

In 2005, David graduated summa cum laude from college and proceeded to graduate from John Marshall Law School in Atlanta. On May 25, 2014, David Lee Windecher took the Oath of Attorney in the very same court room he had appeared fifteen years earlier in handcuffs and an orange jumpsuit.  He is now a licensed attorney in both Georgia and Florida.

David has chronicled his transformation from defendant to defense attorney in a compelling new book entitled “The AmerIcan Dream – HisStory in the Making.”  David wrote this book to detail the challenges facing kids and teens growing up in poverty and in tough neighborhoods. His book is now serving as required reading in Atlanta metro area court ordered rehabilitation programs.

David also mentors non-violent teen offenders in the Atlanta metro area. He is the founder of RED, Inc. (Rehabilitation Enables Dreams), a non-profit organization which sponsors GED programs for young juveniles facing non-violent criminal charges and capable of rehabilitation through an education. RED, Inc.’s mission is to decrease recidivism and increase literacy among America’s youth.

David is the recipient of the Martindale-Hubbell Client Distinction award in both 2013 and 2014. David is also the recipient of the “40 Under 40” Award by both Georgia Trend Magazine and the Atlanta Business Chronicle.David Windecher is a business owner, HLN Legal Analyst and motivational speaker. Windecher speaks passionately about rehabilitation of youthful offenders, the “ban the box” initiative and solving America’s gang problem.

Franchise Business Radio - Zaxby's Atlanta and the Rally Foundation for Childhood Cancer Research

On this episode and interview with Charlotte Haigler, Zaxby's Atlanta Co-Op

Topics to Discuss: Zaxby's Atlanta Co-Op has signed on as the Presenting Sponsor of Rally Idol 2, an evening of live musical performances by children fighting cancer, to benefit the Rally Foundation for Childhood Cancer Research.

ZAXBY’S NAMED PRESENTING SPONSOR FOR RALLY IDOL 2! HOSTED BY THE RALLY FOUNDATION FOR CHILDHOOD CANCER RESEARCH

American Idol Alumni Clark Beckham, Haley Reinhart, Casey Abrams and Anthony Federov to serve as celebrity judges

ATLANTA – The Rally Foundation for Childhood Cancer Research announced today that Zaxby’s will be the presenting sponsor of Rally Idol 2, a rocking night of live musical performances on Saturday, January 28, by the most brave kids in Atlanta. Rally Kids, kids who are fighting or who have fought cancer, will be the stars of Rally Idol 2 as they take the stage in front hundreds of fans at The Buckhead Theatre to perform “American Idol style” with a live band.

American Idol alumni Clark Beckham, Haley Reinhart, Casey Abrams and Anthony Federov will act as celebrity judges, giving their feedback after each performance. The live audience at the Buckhead Theatre will “vote” on their phones throughout the evening to support childhood cancer research. Each vote is a donation and every Rally Kid is a winner!

Tickets for Rally Idol 2 are $20 for single admission and $80 for a family pass. To learn more about Rally Idol 2 or to purchase tickets, visit RallyIdol.org or follow @RallyIdol on Facebook and Twitter.

“I love the mission of the Rally Foundation and raising funds specifically for childhood cancer research,” said Charlotte Haigler, licensee of the Atlanta Zaxby’s co-op. “Childhood cancer affects so many in our community. We need more research money to go directly to stopping childhood cancer. I have a passion for Rally Idol and the awareness it brings to the children affected by cancer. It is a night of fun, music, fundraising and highlighting the exceptional singers and their talent. I have tremendous respect for the family that has so lovingly started Rally Idol and their selfless donation of time and energy. I believe their mission fits the Zaxby's brand perfectly!”

The first Rally Idol, a sold out event with more than 800 in attendance, made its debut in 2014 and raised $60,000 for childhood cancer research. Rally Idol 2 is the vision of 13 year-old Courtney Roach and her older sister, Emily.

“We were inspired to do something big and amazing for my friend (Rally Kid) Ruby and for families like Ruby’s who are fighting or have fought cancer,” said Courtney.

“We are thrilled to have Zaxby’s as a partner in the all-important fight against childhood cancer. There will be much to celebrate – Courtney’s and Emily’s vision, Zaxby’s generosity, stars giving back and talented kids affected by cancer pursuing their dreams,” said Dean Crowe, CEO and Founder of the Rally Foundation. “I am impressed that Courtney has brought together one of the nation’s fastest growing restaurants in Zaxby’s with these former American Idols, and even more impressed watching the talented Rally Kids perform at rehearsals. It is going to be an amazing night.”

About Zaxby’s Enjoying great chicken in an atmosphere where you could be yourself? That’s what childhood friends Zach McLeroy and Tony Townley wanted to achieve when they founded Zaxby’s back in the 1990s. Many years and locations later, Zaxby’s is still delivering on that promise: to serve delicious chicken fingers, wings, sandwiches and salads in a fun, offbeat atmosphere where we welcome customers as friends. As of December 2016, Zaxby’s has grown to more than 800 locations in 16 states and is headquartered in Athens, Georgia. For more information, visit zaxbys.com or zaxbysfranchising.com.
