FAMILY BUSINESS OWNERS

Are you building your business with your family or for your family?

 

Running a business is both rewarding and challenging. It comes with the immense satisfaction of blazing your own trail and building something valuable on your own terms. But it can also be tough at times. The buck stops with you - you have decisions to make and the responsibility of making the right decision at the right time.

At AFF,  we can help you achieve your goals - whether you’re a start-up husband and wife team, siblings working together or an intergenerational family business steeped in history. Research shows people prefer to buy from a family run business. So from Day 1 you’ve got an advantage!

But how do you leverage the advantage of running a family business? And how do you manage the other unique challenges that come with running a family business, such as balancing your goals as the family business leader with the goals and aspirations of the other members of your family? And build a family business culture that works for you, your family and your team?
