"No matter what Family Business issue that we are confronting at Star, we know that others have already addressed similar situations in their own businesses. Thanks to KFBF, we have the forum to interact and learn from quality Grantors and other experienced business owners who already dealt with the similar issues."

- Chris Goebel, Star Lumber 

 

"KFBF is an important resource for our family business by providing education, resources and networking succession, risk management, human resource management, and strategic planning. These issues are imperative in any business, but need to be approached differently in a family business. KFBF provides that expertise."
