Successful Family Owned Business Survival Mentoring | London | Familosophy

Nov 5

A 'family business' is much more than a family-owned and operated firm. Apart from serving as a vehicle for wealth development and entrepreneurship within the family, these enterprises can provide non-monetary benefits to family members, referred to as "socioemotional wealth" or "social capital."

Being involved in family businesses instills sentiments of pride, personal fulfillment, and satisfaction, and can become an integral part of family members' identities.
These additional intangibles are critical when it comes to succession planning, from bringing in new family members to properly handing over the reins.

It's worth mentioning that this added emotional connection between family members and the firm can also act as a catalyst for bad decision-making and conflict. The critical point is to be aware of these non-financial characteristics of a family business and to handle them pro-actively.

Consider the Following: Do you discuss your family's business? I'm not referring to "business speak" - I'm referring to how family members feel about the firm, its operations, its history, and most importantly, its future.
