Make 2021 a year where you see green – not just in your hayloft and pastures come springtime, but also in your profits! The first half of Equine Guelph’s Equine Financial Futures webinar series are now posted as replays, focusing on current challenges like boosting your financial health now, balancing the books and understanding debt. On January 18, 2021, this Monday night series will resume for four consecutive weeks, discussing future planning such as building wealth through investing in yourself and your business, retirement income and exit strategies.
The partners of this important webinar series have also put together a prize package which will be won by one of the registrants of the January and February webinars. The raffle prize will include an online HorsePortal.ca short course, an Ogilvy saddle pad (jumper or dressage) and hat from Ontario Equestrian. The winning participant will also receive a baseline financial plan developed by Sean Jones of Sunlife Financial.
Sean is not only an advisor for Sun Life Financial, he is also an avid equestrian and former facility owner and understands the challenges equine professionals face.
Sean’s role at Sun Life involves advising and educating clients on all aspects of financial planning including owning a home, starting a family, education planning, managing your career and preparing for retirement. Sean develops economical, efficient and client-driven plans that are manageable and tailored to meet individual goals.
“The moment this pandemic hit, some of the first people I thought about were the lesson barn owners,” says Sean. “They operate on such tight margins, that a couple weeks of missed lesson revenue can have serious, unrecoverable impacts on their balance sheets. Some have had to sell off assets to make ends meet. Your financial future is too important to leave up to chance,” says Jones. “Planning today can help your business remain stable during difficult times and look ahead for ways to maximize your growth potential.”
