Changing nature of today’s family farm in evidence at Farm Tech Days

Change is a constant in a dynamic society, and that can be unsettling to those who cannot adapt. Certainly, American agriculture has changed. It is riding the bio- and info-tech revolution to new and dizzying heights.

How old is too old?

This past weekend, I shopped in a big-box store. The salesperson who helped me was a friend from my past. Since this person was a former professional in the business world, I asked about the transition to working in a retail environment and was surprised and disappointed to hear about how this person was “downsized” out of a very important and responsible position, especially when told that the replacement in this position was younger and less experienced.

Financial planning should drive the investment plan, not the other way around

I get a fair number of prospective client calls and a number of them lead off with questions around investing, investment management, returns, etc. Asking a financial planner about investments first is putting the cart before the horse. It’s not how good financial planners operate.
