5 Pillars of Family Business
For many, understanding the intricacies of family business may seem daunting...or even messy...but for Alan Wilson, CEO of Sugarbush Capital this is his sweet spot. Alan is a “connector” in every sense of the word. He is incredibly intelligent, check out his educational history, but cares deeply for people, relationships and leaving an impact which makes his talents unparalleled in today’s family business scene. He’s used his business skills since he was eight years old starting and running a lawn care business where he not only had investors but also hired out the actual mowing! From there, it wasn’t a linear path to get him where he is today and he’ll be the first to tell you it rarely ever is. But what matters is that he has effectively moved through the peaks and valleys of both the international and national world of family business to be able to serve families well. Today he shares with us his experience with family business, teaches us about the 5 Pillars of family business, and leaves us equipped with knowledge that we all need in leadership, as well as some laughs along the way. He’s a dear friend and I’m so happy to share my conversation with him with you. Enjoy.

How CBD Saved This Family Horse Which Then Launched A Family Business with the Carter Family, Part 2
Trove provides high quality CBD products for people, horses, dogs, and cats. Trove is owned and operated by the Carter family. Deborah, Sam, Madison, and Avery each play a crucial, yet different, role in the company.
In Part 1 of this special 2-part series, we shared the genesis story of Trove. How Star, the family horse, started recovering just days before having to be euthanized after receiving CBD. Star’s incredible recovery story led to the birth of Trove. I am so happy to share that not only is Star still healthy and sound to this day, but just a few days ago she gave birth to a beautiful little colt. Eeekkk...it’s pretty amazing. But that’s not what we are talking about today.
This is Part 2 of our Trove series about an extraordinary family business. In this episode the Carters share the inside information about working with each other, the challenges they’ve faced, and how they have grown to love working together. It’s not all roses and butterflies but there are no regrets.
