Financial Poise™ Webinars and West LegalEdcenter are pleased to announce the February 10th premiere of a new webinar series “BUSINESS ADVICE - FROM START-UP TO SALE," a four-part Webinar series, premiering February 10th at 2pm CST through West LegalEdcenter, designed to introduce attorneys and business owners to the critical areas required to turn an idea or product into a successful company. Moderator Michael Schwarzmann of Crowe Horwath joins an expert panel from firms including Sugar Felsenthal Grais & Hammer, Hoge Fenton, Sunburst Digital and Lotzer Law Group to discuss what's required to succeed in a new business.

Great companies fail for lots of reasons that have nothing to do with the product or service they are selling. Turning an idea into a business is hard, often because the creative entrepreneur with the great idea does not have the same level of skill, training, experience, and passion in the other critical areas required to make a product into a successful company. These areas include knowing how to attract and retain people, understanding accounting and finance, and being able to negotiate various contracts - including potentially a contract to buy a competitor or, ultimately, to even sell the business.

This Financial Poise™ webinar series covers some of these topics, as always, in plain English. As with all Financial Poise™ webinars, each episode in the series is designed to be viewed independently of the other episodes, and listeners will enhance their knowledge of this area whether they attend one, some, or all of the programs.

Episode #1 of the series, Legal and Practical Advice - Starting a Business, airs on February 10th at 2pm CST (Register Here) and features moderator Michael Schwarzmann of Crowe Horwath. He is joined by Trisha Lotzer of Lotzer Law Group, Matt Schiff of Sugar Felsenthal Grais & Hammer, Paul Clinkscales of Sunburst Digital and Peter Feinberg of Hoge Fenton.

There are many decisions to be made when a business is started, from the corporate formalities (LLC, Partnership, S Corp, C Corp, Non-Profit) to protecting turf and keeping the copycats away. Hiring and incentivizing employees, utilizing confidentiality agreements, sharing ownership (and getting it back), handling adversity, and borrowing money (friends and family, angel investors, secured lenders) are among the issues that commonly need to be addressed. Episode #1 provides a basic overview of things to be aware of and consider, and shares some best practices with regard to them.
