Business Transition Planning 101

Business Transition Planning 101 (BTP 101)

Sooner or later, everyone leaves their business -- either horizontally or vertically. Achieving a smooth vertical exit requires education, counseling, creation of a professional team, funding and maintenance -- just like any other estate plan. And when an owner retires, becomes disabled, or dies, there can be significant issues with maintaining value for the benefit of the family and for other owners.

In Business Transition Planning 101, business owners learn to think of their business as an asset, not just a job, and to lay the foundation for a successful business transition. The class identifies some of the overlooked problems, and introduces a system to avoid those problems.

This workshop is led by Bill Coyne.

Estate Planning 101: Rules for Effective Estate Planning

Estate Planning 101: Rules for Effective Estate Planning

This class is an exploration of the basic things that must be done to create an effective estate plan. It answers the questions: What is probate? What is a will? What is a trust? How much do they cost? How do I decide which approach is right for me?

The class reviews the seven reasons why most plans don't work as intended, and offers a strategy to address those problems. Particular focus is placed on the importance of proper titling, the need to train your helpers, and the need to update the legal and financial parts of the plan.

The class is highly interactive; questions are welcome. Participants will receive a loose leaf binder containing forms and checklists to begin their planning, or to review an existing plan.

The class is held in Suite 102 at 160 Gould St., Needham, MA. It generally lasts about 1 to 2 hours, depending on the level of interaction, and the number of questions.

To inquire about the availability of late registrations, call 617-624-3350.

The Shift
with Formula 5
For fans of: Cold Play, Foo Fighters, Pink Floyd, Led Zeppelin"Music is the temple," states John Shannon, co-front man for transcendental rock band The Shift. Together with co-frontman Nick Cassarino, they resemble a modern day John and Paul of sorts, with each their own distinct approach to songwriting. Shannon's vocals seem the soft whispers of some rogue angel, lovingly feeding secrets of the divine and mysterious into the ears of listeners. Cassarino sings with the soulful, throaty swagger of a seasoned blues man, who's unstated mission is to channel the blood, sweat and tears of being alive. Shannon and Cassarino are also masters of the six-string in their own right, each capable of creating worlds of tangible melodic landscapes or shattering worlds around them like untamed animals. Add to the the mix bassist Benjamin Geis, whose poignant, crystalline bass licks provide a sturdy vibrational foundation; and drummer Matt Lambert, a truly explosive talent and the very definition of "in the pocket," capable of both the smallest, most sophisticated hits and hits so huge one risks the momentary deaf whine of shell shock when standing close to the stage. While The Shift is clearly a rock band first and foremost, they seek to stir awake the long dormant souls of listeners, to rekindle the curiosity and wonder for the unseen universe that exists in and around and beyond this world of dirt and concrete and walls. After all, The Shift is not only a change in how we listen, but how we SEE. The journey begins soon. Are you ready for The Shift? - Mike Longo, Writer and Music Documentarian

Tool Training: Tablesaw Fundamentals SEPTEMBER

Description:

The table saw is the center of most woodshops. Almost all woodworking projects, from fine furniture to general construction, use a table saw. When used incorrectly, however, it is also one of the most dangerous tools in the shop. In this four-week class, learn to use a table saw safely and accurately, and reinforce these techniques by constructing a small, simple project.

We will cover three of the most common cuts; ripping, cross cutting, and dados. Students will learn to change blades, and set up simple jigs to precisely cut parts. In the second session we will make a small project from sheet goods. We will cover the best way to lay out parts, and how to cut and fit them to achieve accurate results. The project and the skills learned from it provide excellent fundamentals for larger projects students may wish to undertake on their own.

Class Goals:

At the end of this class the students should be comfortable using a table saw safely, including changing blades and using dado blades and a variety of sleds and miter gauges, and be fully tested out and able to use the tablesaw as a member at Artisan's Asylum. Students will also have an understanding of how to lay out simple woodworking projects to make the most efficient use of their time and materials, andwill have a completed a small project to take home!

Prerequisites:

Students must be at least 18 years of age. No previous woodshop training required!

Materials Provided:

All necessary materials will be provided, and are covered by a $20 materials fee included in the cost of registration.

What to Bring:

Please dress appropriately for shop work: closed toed shoes, no baggy clothing or draping sleeves, no dangling jewelry or accessories, and something with which to tie back long hair.

Introduction to TIG Welding: SEPTEMBER

Description:

This class is designed to introduce students to the process of TIG welding, a precise type of welding most often used in the manufacture of spaceframe structures like bike frames and roll cages. Students will learn how to weld different types of materials, different types of shapes, and different types of joints together, and will learn how to use the large range of supporting equipment (brushes, sanders, grinders, etc.) and processes that come with welding.

Class Goals:

The goal of this class will be to train a student to the point where they can weld on Artisan's Asylum equipment safely and independently.

Prerequisites:

Students must be at least 18 years of age.

Materials:

Students will bring a flannel shirt, leather gloves and safety glasses to class. Students will purchase raw materials from the instructor as needed for their projects.

Instructor Biography:

In 1993 Skunk picked up a TIG torch, struck an arc, and produced his first weld puddle (oddly enough, it was in titanium). Ever since, he has been on a relentless mission to transmogrify and personify sparkplugs, circuit breaker boxes, reamer blades, typewriters, and the like, helping the little creatures he inherently sees in objects transcend their original purpose. Saw blades are reinvented into angelic wings, tin cans devolve into rose pedals, and a broken clarinet gets a second life as a pirate blunderbuss. No outdated or discarded mechanical devices are safe from joining the parade of fantastic creatures, mighty rayguns, and emotional robots, some of which tip the scales at over 300 pounds.

Skunk is also the Grand Poobah of a bicycle nerd-gang known as SCUL, and works as a professional custom bike builder for Seven Cycles.
