Feather River Bulletin Wednesday, Nov. 4, 2015 11A planning IIII nancial manageme nt The Van Fleet family and the Jefferson Center are hosting a holistic fmancial planning management workshop in Indian Valley at the Defianti Ranch, Nov. 6 through 9, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. each day. "Workshop participants will learn how to make and test decisions holistically, how to plan for profit, build wealth and make a solid plan for the upcoming year that generates profit within your holistic context," said Spencer Smith, co-owner of the Jefferson Center and an accredited holistic management instructor. Sponsors of the event are the Van Fleet family, the Jefferson Center for Holistic Management and The Savory Institute. Holistic management is applied most frequently to land-based businesses because it is an effective framework for managing the complexities of natural systems. However, any family, business or organization can benefit from taking a holistic approach to decision making, according to the Jefferson Center. "We are excited to visit the Van Fleets and further our work together. It was Mia Van Fleet (who) originally encouraged us to form the Jefferson Center," said Abbey Smith, co-owner of the Jefferson Center. Smith grew up in C-enesee Valley and graduated from Greenville High School. She and her husband Spencer started the Jefferson Center for Holistic Management, which is a Savory Institute network hub serving Northern California and Nevada. Attendees Can attend a BBQ following the workshop on Saturday night, hosted by the Van Fleet Family and the Jefferson Center and lunch is provided each day. Plumas-Sierra County Farm Bureau and Cattlemen's Association members will receive a special discount to the workshop through the Jefferson Center. Couples or business partners get a two-for-one deal and individual members will receive a 20 percent discount off the ticket price of $100. Visit using code fbpartner2015 and to purchase tickets.
