A family business is unique in many ways. It is generally the case that something remarkable has been created, and the business has become a focal point of the family. Challenges are faced jointly along the lines of familial relations. Such challenges are often resolved, but there can be tremendous difficulty in separating rational and emotional matters and taking the right business decisions.
The goal is to ensure the continuity of the company as well as maintain harmony within the family. In all cases, it is essential to assess and act as objectively as possible. Expert advice from an impartial third party can be an invaluable asset.
