And that’s exactly how it should be. Whether we’re helping you get the numbers right on your tax plan, or find the right number for your revenue goal, we have you—a person with a story—in mind.

But we always bring it back to the numbers, making sure that your numbers tell the right story about you, and that they drive your story forward in the direction you want to go.

Top 5 Keys to Succession Planning
As Harvest Comes to a Close, Now is the Time to Focus on the Big Picture: Succession Planning   Jeff Bowman, Ag Team Leader At some point, all family farming operations face the same challenge: "What do we do if something happens to Dad? Who gets what?" Succession planning is never a favorite topic. It can be rife with emotion and conflict, but it also is a challenge and a reality that all family businesses need to prepare for.  Is this the year that your family is going to tackle succession? For ag families, the alternative to proper succession planning oftentimes is grim and involves losing most or all of the family farm. Sadly, this is a fact. As families grow, so does the potential for conflict. Let us help. Jeff Bowman, Ag Team Leader, says the first step he takes when working with a family on its succession planning is to learn what the long-term goals are for the farm and the next generation. "It's an open conversation where I can learn their thoughts and big-picture goals," he says. Here are five starter tips to help get the ball rolling* Don't avoid "The Talk" because it is a touchy or fight-triggering subject.   Obstacles like greed, family disharmony, control freaks, self-interest, and lack of contribution are tricky topics to air. Speak candidly and nip them in the bud with new solutions.  Write down both small and major goals that every person can agree on.   Schedule regular meetings with the entire family during the year and be sure that notes or recordings are taken at every meeting.   Commit and execute the plan! Back in October of last year, we invited agriculture succession planning expert Kevin Spafford to join us for a luncheon presentation. He shared the helpful tips he has gleaned after working with hundreds of ag families. Click here to learn more.   Grimbleby Coleman is a trusted ally when it comes to assisting ag families with succession planning. We want each family member to accomplish his or her individual long-term financial goals. There's no time quite like the present when it comes to the matter of succession planning - make plans with your family today. We can help you navigate the conversation.   *These reminders are thanks to Kevin Spafford, Legacy-By-Design.

“It all started with church…” Those are the words Nalini uses to explain how her career in accounting first began, although the industry runs in her veins as her older sisters are also in the field. Nalini, a Modesto native, began taking bookkeeping classes while she was a student at Modesto Junior College. During her time there, she was asked to help out a local church with their bookkeeping and she fell in love with putting numbers together and helping get positive results for her client. From MJC, her desires and dreams in the field grew as she transferred to Northwest Nazarene University and fell in love with the school of business, eventually graduating with a Bachelors  of Science in Accounting and continuing on to receive her Master of Science s in Accounting from Walden University.

When Nalini is not crunching numbers, you can find her leading fellowship at Big Valley Grace Community Church, watching movies (like the Lord of the Rings trilogy) or reading up on a historical figure such as William Wilberforce (English politician, philanthropist, and a leader of the movement to abolish the slave trade).

One of her favorite quotes by Mr. Wilberforce states, “We have different forms assigned to us in the school of life, different gifts imparted. All is not attractive that is good. Iron is useful, though it does not sparkle like the diamond. Gold has not the fragrance of a flower. So different persons have various modes of excellence, and we must have an eye to all.” Nalini is passionate about seeing what is special in all people and looks forward to finding a way to share her passion in our community through encouraging and building up young women.
