Kids, Family Business ... and Consequences

The Wake Forest University Business Center invites you to join us for a special forum customized for family business owners and their families. Wake Forest committed to preparing students for a successful college-to-career transition, and financial literacy is an important piece in that preparation.

Rich Morris, the co-author of Kids, Wealth and Consequences, will provide parents with the motivation to start communicating their financial values, and the tools to do so with confidence.

Topics will include:

1. Talking to Kids about Money: Who, when, what, how and why?

2. Defining the Family's Financial Values: How can parents instill financial values? To what extent do parents model them?

3. Successful Choices: How can one harmoniously integrate a family and business, and provide children successful and happy career choices?

Rich Morris is a principal of ROI Consulting. Previously, he worked at his family's 80-year-old, privately held company, Fel-Pro, until its sale in 1998. Rich has spoken at family business centers across the country, and has been quoted in the Wall Street Journal, Crain's Chicago Business, and Family Business magazine.

This Family Business Center forum is open to WFU Parents, FBC members, sponsors and their guests. Contact Kathy Baker, FBC Director, for information on FBC membership and guest policies. The event is scheduled for Friday, Sept. 16, from 9:30 am- 1 pm at the Graylyn Conference Center.
