Why is business planning important? In a partnership, you need to be ready for the “what ifs.” We just want to make sure we have things planned out in case something happens.
How is Modern Woodmen helping meet your business planning needs? Landon is helping us with buy-sell agreements funded with life insurance. He’s also helping both of us with retirement accounts.
What's one thing you were surprised to learn during the planning process? What could happen if something happened to one of us and we didn’t have all of our bases covered – the potential mess it could create.
What advice do you have for other business owners? Take a few minutes and make plans. Get them set in place. It could save you from a lot of headaches down the road.

Term life insurance
Term life insurance provides low-cost protection and peace of mind for a certain period of time. While permanent protection is an important part of an overall life insurance plan, term insurance can protect you by helping to cover temporary needs, such as helping to pay off your mortgage or other debt. This can be an affordable way to help make sure your dreams and goals are protected.Learn more
