5 Mistakes Most Family Businesses Make

5 Mistakes Most Family Businesses Make

length 3:42 (not including bonus content)

Are you part of a family business? If so, do you feel everyone in the family is on the same page with business goals or are you frustrated because everyone seems to want different things?

Is the leadership of the business now and into the future clear and spelled out or is it just too difficult to talk about with your family partners?

Well, yesterday, I received a book from my friend and fellow peer group member, Wayne Rivers, Co-Founder and President of The Family Business Institute. Wayne has worked with hundreds of family businesses across the U.S. and in his new book, The Eight Building Blocks for Creating a Sustainable Closely Held Company he shares his list of the top reasons family businesses fail.

I’ll discuss these five reasons with you in today’s episode of PowerTips TV!

What about you?

Have you run into these challenges in your family business? How did you handle it? Please share your stories in the comments below!

Opt Out

I confirm that I am choosing to opt-out of the new Roundtables membership, henceforth referred to simply as Roundtables (“Roundtables”).  

I understand that my current membership will not change and will be henceforth referred to as RT Legacy, Roundtables Legacy, or simply Legacy (“Legacy”). I understand that by opting out I will not receive the additional benefits offered to Roundtables membership and will not receive the bonus PSCs.  I acknowledge that if I choose to upgrade at a later date, I will not receive any bonus PSCs above the standard issue.

By clicking below, you opt out and will be locked into the Legacy program for 2021. You will not receive an increase in dues, other than our standard inflationary annual dues increases. You will have the opportunity to opt in for the 2022 membership year. However, there will be no bonus given to future opt in cycles.

Please note that if you cancel your membership, you forfeit access to Legacy membership in the future. You may rejoin only as a Roundtables member.
