Family Business Legacy – It Takes Work
Much advice provided to business families focuses only on tangible business or financial issues. The journey to build a family legacy, however, must focus on all factors that may affect business issues, including interpersonal challenges that the family and the business face. To travel on that journey with others requires mutual respect, understanding, and trust.
“Your plans will fall apart right in front of you if you fail to get good advice. But if you first seek out multiple counselors, you’ll watch your plans succeed. Everyone enjoys giving great advice. But how delightful it is to say the right thing at the right time.” Proverbs 15:22-23 The Passion Translation
“Good leadership is built on love and truth, for kindness and integrity are what keep leaders in their position of trust.” Proverbs 20:28 The Passion Translation
Too Often Forgotten
“never drift off course from these two goals for your life: to walk in wisdom and to discover discernment. Don’t ever forget how they empower you. For they strengthen you inside and out and inspire you to do what’s right; you will be energized and refreshed by the healing they bring. They give you living hope to guide you, and not one of life’s tests will cause you to stumble.”
Proverbs 3: 21 – 23 The Passion Translation
