|SARASOTA/MANATEE – Planning for retirement, and business succession, are themes of the first BizEdConnect of 2014, to be held Jan. 22.
Phil Couture, an asset management adviser with more than 30 years of experience, will lead the discussion, which is part of the Sarasota Manatee Business Coalition’s monthly BizEdConnect series melding business networking, entertainment and education.
