Generations Wealth Strategies – 304 Main Street Black River Falls, WI 54615- 715-284-5433- https://www.generationswealthstrategies.com/

When you’ve spent your life pouring your heart and soul into your crops, the last thing you want is for your livelihood to be the thing that drives your family apart. You built your legacy to provide for the people you love, and your life’s work should be a blessing not just financially, but relationally. That’s why your financial strategy requires so much more than insurance strategies and tax considerations—you need someone to help you protect the heart of your business while you create a legacy that will support your family for years to come.
At Generations Wealth Strategies, we specialize in helping cranberry growers and other agriculture professionals protect their marshes, farms, and families for generations. We like to say that we’re in the business of preserving comfortable Thanksgiving dinners because our goal is to not only prepare your marsh or farm financially, but to make sure your kids and grandkids keep loving each other—and the marsh—long after you’re gone. We help you think through the future of your family business so you can make sure everyone is on the same page and prepared to make wise decisions, no matter who’s running the business. As your partner, we want to put you in the financial position to take advantage of opportunities as you grow so your estate can sustain multiple generations of your family—not just when you retire, but while you’re still around to show them the ropes.
We’ve been serving agricultural families for more than 20 years, and we know how personal the growing business can be. We love helping hardworking, dedicated people establish financially sound estates in a way that reminds them why they decided to be part of a family business in the first place. After all, a legacy should be about more than money—it’s a way to bring your family together year after year, no matter how many years have passed, no matter who’s running the business. And that’s something to get excited about.

#WillPProject * Stop.Think.Live. In the shadow of tragedy, we focus on the light...
The #WillPProject hopes to help those in our community (within 30 miles of Alma Center, WI) by providing messages of hope, help, and light in suicide prevention and cancer support through the #WillPProject Cancer Warrior Service.
People can apply for assistance through the #WillPProject Cancer Warrior Service by filling out this Google form: https://forms.gle/BkhA6WMsTTURKjNx6
The #WillPProject hopes to help brighten the day of someone battling cancer.
We are all battling something tough - or seemingly impossible - on some days. Together, we can be stronger. Go for a walk and talk with a pal - these moments of connection, support, and activity can take a mind from a dark spiral, up and out into a rainbow of hope and light. The #WillPProject will be placing benches in our community to help spark conversations of help and support. It also hopes to place some special signs in the community and to help pay for some counseling/mental health sessions for those who need help. When the darkest of days come, please Stop.Think.Live. Do these 3 things when doubt and despair enter your mind. Stop any further action. Think about choices and what they mean. Seek some support in that moment of doubt to help get you out of your own head and find some clarity. Think about all those who love you (they DO!), and choose to Live.
