Terri Krivosha Quoted in Upsize Minnesota Article on Building a Solid Foundation

January 16, 2015

Terri Krivosha, partner in Maslon's Business & Securities group, is featured in a December/January Upsize Minnesota magazine article titled "Building a solid foundation—Brick by brick." The article gives a synopsis of the October 2014 Upsize/Club Entrepreneur event featuring Terri and four other experts sharing tips to help any business owner get off on the right foot.

In the article, Terri notes "The first thing to do is start at the end. Are you looking to give your business to your kids? To build it and scale it? To have a lifestyle business? You can change this over time, but [it's] important to state the final outcome you desire." The article details how to conquer resistance to change in the business, and Terri notes, "you have to create a sense of urgency and everybody has to buy into it."
