Peaks & Valleys podcast series looks at the unique challenges of running seasonal businesses
OTTAWA, Ontario - July 23, 2021 - PRLog -- Market Maker Agriculture today announced it has launched the Peaks & Valleys podcast, a series that looks at the unique challenges of running a seasonal business.
While host Lisa Courtney Lloyd interviews executives in agribusinesses, the issues they discuss are applicable to all businesses that experience seasonality – or peaks and valleys – in their revenues and cash flow.
"Running a seasonal business is not for the faint of heart," says Radius President Bobbi Faulkner, who is featured in the first episode. During the interview she likens the cadence of running a seasonal business to taking a trip on an airplane. The episode wraps up with her tips and best practices. Radius creates and manages supply networks of seasonal live goods for large retailers.
Market Maker Agriculture is a long-term hold private equity company that invests in agribusinesses across Canada and the United States that have seasonal cashflows, supporting ownership transition. Market Maker's approach is to acquire a controlling interest in a company, manage the balance sheet and let the original team (or members of it) continue to operate the company, keeping the corporate culture and legacy intact. To-date Market Maker's portfolio includes three companies, including Radius, as well as Manderley Turf Products and Arkansas Valley Seed. www.marketmakerag.com
