Learn from Aaron about COBS Bread Successes and Challenges

"Family ownership adds another layer of complexity to the everyday challenges of business management. When harnessed correctly however, the benefits of family ownership far outweigh the costs. I welcome the opportunity to share the challenges and successes I have experienced, especially if it can be helpful to other families in business."
