Moore OK Tornado – Charity Organizations Need Help
Our thoughts and prayers are extended to the people of Moore, Oklahoma.
Yesterday afternoon, Moore was hit by a massive tornado – winds that may have exceeded 200 miles per hour and on the ground for more than 40 minutes.
Estimates are that the tornado cut a swath 2 miles wide and 20 miles long – the total destruction of schools, churches, homes, medical facilities and businesses is hard to comprehend.
There are a number of charity organizations that will be supplying aid – they need your financial contributions to support their mission.
To check out a list of vetted charity organizations, click on the link at the bottom of this Blog

Happy Mother's Day
A special “Happy Mother’s Day” greeting to all of the mothers involved in family businesses!
When we are helping a family business develop and implement a succession strategy, we study the role that “mom” plays in the family’s business. We often refer to her as the CEO of the family’s business – the Chief Emotional Officer!
Very often “mom” is the peacemaker in a family business – the shock absorber when there are inter-generational and intra-generational disputes going on that are ripping at the family and/or the family’s business.
All too often, the role of “mom” in a family business is under-valued and even unrecognized in many family-owned businesses.
Mother’s Day is a good time to give mom the recognition she desires for her work with the family and the family’s business.
