As I see it
Passing the Torch
BECCA ANDERSON EDITOR
The theme for this issue, Passing the Torch, is near and dear to my heart. As many of you know, publisher Marcia Todd and I are mother and daughter. We began the dance of working together in 2000 and transferred permanent editorship to me in 2013. We are still working out the kinks sometimes. It’s a complicated pro- cess to hand off your ‘baby’ to other hands. In this issue we cover many aspects of hand- ing off a business – both within the family and to another owner. What is the best way to go about it? When should you start planning for it? What are you responsible for, and how can you maximize your chances of a good hand-off? Our cover story and columnists give you some good ideas.
