The Art of Selling the Family Business

So, when youâ€™re ready to take the leap, itâ€™s essential to do it right. Now, award-winning CEO Jonathan Pellegrin has cultivated a fool-proof formula for transition success.
â€œExploring the landscape and being informed about the process beforehand is essential.

Well, this is very interesting and comes at a good time. I will check this out. Thanks!
Thanks, Lisa! It’s a great book.
We don’t have a family business. My dad is a retired engineer. I have always admired and usually trusted businesses that have been passed down from generation to generation. What I find sad is when the business can no longer make a profit and is forced to sell, like so many farms these days. It’s so competitive and sometimes makes sense to sell so it’s good to read up on the topic.
It can definitely be a challenge to have a family farm!
Thank you for sharing this post!
