Plan all you want, but sometimes unlikely events occur that come as a complete surprise to upend your business.  Many business owners have operational strategies to help manage uncertainty but too many don’t have similar strategies in place when it comes to an eventual exit plan. By Jon Wiley

Who's afraid of health care? Not investors
We’ve just experienced the 18th U.S. government shutdown. The stock market reacted by whipsawing up and down hundreds of points. Yet the S&P 500 just had another record close. So it looks like the health care-induced shutdown wasn’t all bad for investors. What about past shutdowns? Did they help or hurt the markets? By Ron Phillips
To ensure compliance with U.S. export controls, companies should develop an export compliance program that addresses all areas of concern. Your due diligence checklist should be drafted to request information that allows you to evaluate the target company’s export compliance program. If the target company is engaged in international business and does not have a compliance program or has never heard of U.S. export controls, you may consider that a red flag.

“I had the opportunity to work for a CEO who told me, ‘You can make widgets … you can make a difference, or you can do both. But, either way, it is a conscious choice.’ If your work does not provide meaning to you, it will not provide meaning to anyone around you and it will fall flat. But find the meaning, and you will change companies, communities and lives." By Maria Martin
