131: Working With Friends and Family with Chris Prefontaine
Working with family or close friends might seem like a recipe for disaster. But, when approached with clarity and open communications, it can be a highly rewarding experience for everyone. Today’s guest is Chris Prefontaine. Chris is the founder of Smart Real Estate Coach, host of the Smart Real Estate Coach Podcast and best selling author of 2017’s Real Estate on Your Terms and this year’s The New Rules of Real Estate Investing. He operates his family business with his son, Nick, his daughter, Kayla, his son-in-law, Zach, and an amazing team. Chris and I talk about the complexities of working with family or close friends, how to create a culture that feels like family at work, what to consider if you’re thinking of starting a business or hiring a friend or family member and more. This was a particularly fun episode because as you’ll hear, I’m also part of a family business, and, given that last week’s interview with Dave Schramm was about the connection between family and workplace culture, it seemed appropriate that this conversation should follow that one.

Read the related blog article: How to Create A Healthy Work Culture in a Family Business Key Takeaways: * If you have both related and unrelated employees on your team, create a work culture that makes everyone feel like they’re family. * Establish a company mission and core values. Use them to guide your decisions instead of basing them on biases or gut reactions. * Hire for mission and values fit, rather than on a person’s relationship to you. This will ensure a level playing field for your employees regardless of their relationship to you. * To encourage a healthy culture based on your values, decide as a team what behaviors you want to see. Publicly recognize when anyone sees an employee exemplifying that behavior. * Establish clear, constant communication by using Morning Pow-Wow team meetings to bring everyone on the same page, collectively work through solutions, and enhance efficiency and productivity. * Make clear boundaries between your work and home life. Don’t bring negativity or challenges from work into your home / personal conversations. * Some benefits to managing a family business are (1) deeper pre-existing trust of the person, (2) the ability to set up generational wealth, and (3) the chance to invest in your family by giving them opportunities to try new things and watch them grow.

Chris Hogan: Everyday Millionaires Chris Hogan is a best-selling author, a personal finance expert, and America’s leading voice on retirement, investing, and building wealth. His goal is to help as many people as possible avoid financial traps and set their families up for the future. His book Retire Inspired: It’s Not an Age; It’s a Financial Number* is a number one national best seller, and The Chris Hogan Show has millions of downloads. He is also the author of Everyday Millionaires: How Ordinary People Built Extraordinary Wealth―and How You Can Too*. In this conversation, Chris and I discuss the national study that his organization conducted on everyday millionaires. We address some of the common misconceptions about millionaires. Plus, we detail both the mindset and behaviors that millionaires have that support the creation of wealth. Key Points The top three occupations for millionaires are engineer, accountant, and teacher. Millionaires steer clear of debt. Millionaires have a mentality of abundance vs. scarcity. They embrace change and usually see adversity as an opportunity for growth. Millionaires are frugal, not flashy. They spend less than the general population on groceries, restaurants and clothing. Employer sponsored retirement plans are a key vehicle the vast majority of millionaires use to build wealth. Only 1 in 5 millionaires receive any kind of inheritance.

Payments to customers? Receipts from vendors? Help!
The accounting is relatively straightforward when cash is received from a customer or paid to a vendor. But what if you receive cash from the vendor and pay the customer? When everything is reversed, the accounting is not as easy and it may be more common than you expect. In this episode, Angela Fergason and Jay Seliber, partners in PwC’s National Office, join host Heather Horn to help you think through the accounting implications. Topics include: * *0:44 - Overview.* Before we begin navigating the accounting guidance, we set the stage by talking about why this topic generates so many questions and share common examples of transactions when this might occur.  * *4:50 - Consideration paid to a customer (ASC 606). *Angela explains the vendor’s accounting when payments are made to a customer, touching on related judgments and the timing of recognition. * *15:59 - Consideration received from a vendor (ASC 705-20).* Switching gears, Jay walks us through the guidance for situations when a customer receives money from a vendor, touching on the different models and sharing illustrative examples.  * *29:52 - Final reminders. *We close by sharing helpful reminders, highlighting the importance of assessing all of the relationships involved and not merely jumping to a default model.   Angela Fergason is a partner in PwC's National Office with over 20 years of experience who specializes in accounting for revenue and employee compensation arrangements. She is  a frequent speaker on accounting and financial reporting topics and is a contributor to many PwC National Office publications, including our accounting guides on revenue and stock-based compensation.
