I would imagine that owning a business and working with your family comes with plenty of stress and questions. What happens when the head of the family retires? Who can take over, and are they prepared to run the business?
Those are some heavy questions that will need to be addressed, unless you plan on selling your business, and dissolving the family business. Perhaps you have questions on a smaller scale like; How do I keep cousin Eddie on-task? This is something that fellow family-run businesses encounter.
We are very lucky to have the Southwest Indiana Small Business Development Center as a resource for local businesses. Under that umbrella is the Family Business Alliance. If I owned a business, I would want to learn everything that I could from successful entrepreneurs.
Events are held throughout the year, specifically for family-owned businesses. These are great networking events. Plus, you can get information on how to navigate issues and opportunities specific to this industry. Like how other successful businesses deal with the employee/family dynamic.
Turn up the Heat
The next event for the Family Business Alliance in Evansville is going to get heated! The keynote speaker will be Tony Simmons, retired CEO of the McIlhenny Company which makes Tabasco products. His company has been in the family for 150 years - Seven generations. Mr. Simmons has probably dealt with issues you haven't even thought of yet.
