Atlanta-based Family Business Institute and their Internet organization, Family Business Experts, announced their e-zine Understanding Family Business will now be published bi-weekly.
David Jones, editor of the e-zine, said the change was made based on the number of requests from the subscribers. Our readers wanted us to increase the frequency Â publishing the e-zine once a month was not often enough.
Understanding Family Business is designed to be a quick read and contains tips, articles and success strategies for families in business together. ÂItÂs all about family business dynamicsÂ, notes Don Schwerzler, nationally recognized family business consultant and founder of the Family Business Institute.
Anyone interested in subscribing to Understanding Family Business can do so by visiting our web site (http://www.family-business-experts.com)
Schwerzler continues, ÂWhen we are working with a family business, one of the first assessments we make is to determine if we are working with a Âfamily first businessÂ or a Âbusiness first familyÂ. While the problems are articulated the same for each model, the problem resolution options are dramatically different The format for Understanding Family Business addresses both family and business issues Â and how they get successfully connected. Without a clear and practiced strategy, the family business can quickly become a battlefield that can wreck the business, the family Â or both.
For example, one of the toughest problems for family-owned businesses is how quickly and easily problems and disputes can cascade from family to business or from business to family. A divorce in the family is very likely to create problems in the business as well. Likewise, if the business is struggling financially, it can easily cause stress and problems for family relationships.
Understanding Family Business addresses the unique and complex issues that impact family businesses and can be a rich source of helpful information Â delivered to our subscribers by e-mail every other week.
