RHINELANDER - Every community in the Northwoods wants their small businesses to grow.

In order for them to grow sometimes the business owner needs their children to take over the business.

The Rhinelander Chamber of Commerce wants those business owners to be prepared when the time comes.

The chamber held a Lunch and Learn session for owners today.

The session informed business owners of options to sell or transfer ownership of the business when the time comes.

Business owner Steve Ory plans for his son to take over Enterprise Wood Products in Rhinelander.

"I think this is good for the community to have somebody come in and talk to small businesses that wants to pass it along to their children," said Ory.

"The more tax and legal information you can have the better."

Sometimes the child of the business owner might not want to take over.

That's why it's important to have a back up plan.

"Be prepared. When we talk about assembling an advisory team, we talk about attorneys, business brokers to help you sell that business and a financial advisor," Morgan Stanley Wealth Management financial advisor, Tyler Krombholz.

"All these people have to work in concert to help this transition happen."

The chamber plans to have another lunch and learn session next month.

TOMAHAWK - It might not seem like spring yet.

But some people in Tomahawk spent Saturday preparing for when they can start fishing again.

They did that today by taking a class at Treehaven.

They learned how to tie their own flies to use for fly fishing.

"Everyone gets excited this time of year when the snow starts to melt, you start to see some open water and what better way to prepare by tying flies and start the fishing off with a good full box of flies," says class instructor Austin Noring.
