Shortly after this research was made public, the results were cited in articles from leading business outlets such as The Huffington Post, Inc. Magazine and Small Business Trends.

Additionally, TAB has published a series of blog posts and tips to help family business owners, including:

  1. Jessica says:

    I’ve had the pleasure of being part of TAB in the past and have found that they do have the formula in improving one’s professional growth. Through their education and leadership programs, I had the opportunity to learn from other business owner experiences.

  2. Joan says:

    Succession planning is family business is hard, emotions get in the way

  3. Jason says:

    One of the best tips I’ve learned about family business success is the importance of having a clear, legally binding succession plan in place to protect the future of the business (and the family).

    • TAB Boards says:

      So true. Proper, legal planning will always improve key transitions in a business, especially when the added relationships of a family are involved.

  4. Daniel Palmer says:

    Put every major decision in writing . Fight the urge to make oral agreements and it will save you some heartache down the line

  5. Hoo Kang says:

    My best tip is that there is clear communication and goals all hashed out. If there is poor or no communication working with family can turn a blessing into a curse.

    • TAB Boards says:

      Very true Hoo! Communication is key in every business success. When it comes to family businesses, there’s a whole other dynamic in place that makes this even more important.

  6. Tarique says:

    Would love to learn more about family business success. Looking forward to reading this book.

  7. Norb says:

    My sucession planing was my son telling me he needed to pay for college is taking my business to do so. I tried to get them to understand everything at a younger age but it seems that something just clicked and he got into it. My advice is to first be sure the family members want to be involved and dont push it on them.

  8. Donna K says:

    When you are at work the relationships is employee-employer and not dad-son, etc.
