Jolene Brown is coming to the National Hard Spring Wheat Show to speak on how to “stop the fighting on the way to the funeral home” at 6 p.m. CT.

“It happens far too often in family business - promises are spoken and broken, facts are assumed, habits are hardened and before we know it, we’ve got family fighting on the way to the funeral home. It’s time we honor the family and do the business right,” said Brown.

Her presentation highlights transition issues of fair and equal, earned sweat equity, advisor necessity, productive communications, and important meetings.

Brown is a spokesperson, eastern Iowa farmer, contributor to Successful Farming magazine’s popular family business column, author of two great books, and an inductee into the prestigious CPAE Speaker Hall of Fame. She brings a fun-filled spirit and valuable information to her discussions. She is known to share leading-edge best practices, appreciation, laughter, and celebration to increase productivity, profitability, and peace of mind. 

Brown has spoken in the area before, including Taylor Ag Services, Watford City in 2014, Farmer Union Oil, Stanley in 2013, and at Wheat Show in 2013. She says she is eager to get back to the area to share some information.

“I’m excited to share insight wrapped in humor and real-life stories that will help attendees honor their families by doing the business right. Over three decades of speaking for and consulting with families, I know that this does not have to be a painful, dreaded process. The business and the people deserve more than hope, they deserve some help. It’s time to appreciate and celebrate the hard work of those in the hard red spring wheat business.”
