Build a Killer Family Business, Without Killing Your Family
What makes a good business that can be passed down to future generations?
Are you prepared for the unexpected if you had to step down before you’re ready?
Would your family be able to fill your shoes quickly and efficiently to carry on “business as usual?”
Or do you feel like you’re going through the motions in your day-to-day operations and just barely scraping by with no plan for the future?
What if you could prepare your business so that day-to-day tasks are delegable?
Stephen Shortt joins us, all the way from Dublin, to talk succession planning inside the family business
We’ll be discussing the good, the bad, and the ugly of business succession planning.
