Financial and Insurance Considerations for
the Small Business Owner

On Thursday, February 26, 2009 the IEEE Consultants' Network of Northern NJ (technologyontap.org) will be holding a meeting featuring a talk on financial and insurance issues of importance to a small business owner.

Our speaker, Bob Stadeck, will provide an overview of the economic upheaval of 2008 and offer an outlook for the opportunities and challenges of 2009. Bob will discuss practical ways to protect what you have worked so hard to acquire, reducing or containing company health and disability costs and reviewing some owner sponsored/employee paid supplemental benefit programs that can provide significant long term financial gain.

Small consulting businesses often have limited "exit strategies". Bob will offer concrete suggestions on ways to attract and retain key employees that can be the best source of potential buyers. Funding mechanisms to help pass assets to family members that may not be capable of managing or interested in retaining your company can be a significant component in funding your own retirement. Sufficient time will be allocated for questions and answers.

Bob Stadeck is a Financial Representative with Northwestern Mutual Investment Services in Summit. Northwestern Mutual?s small business unit assists entrepreneurs in providing comprehensive entry level benefits packages to their employees, addresses the particular risks of "key employee" operations, and assists owners in maximizing the long term value of their companies, all with an appreciation of the cash flow constraints involved with start-up operations.

Bob has over 20 years of experience as an entrepreneur and small business owner; his prior manufacturers representative organization has served a number of our member companies. He can be reached at robert.stadeck@nmfn.com

Founded in 1992, the IEEE Consultants Network of Northern NJ encourages and pro?motes the use of independent technical consultants by business and industry.
