“The Family Business Road Map to Peace of Mind, is an important addition to the field of helping families achieve their financial and family goals.
This book is a gem.”
Scottsdale, AZ (PRWEB) February 15, 2012
This week, a powerful book, 'The Family Business Road Map To Peace Of Mind' has been released to Amazon. “The new book reveals a road map that is scalable and beneficial to family-owned businesses of all sizes,” remarks James Olan Hutcheson, Co-Author, President and Founder ReGENERATION Partners. “Often, family businesses are fertile ground for internal dissension, conflict, and stress. With this knowledge in hand, we wrote 'The Family Business Road Map To Peace Of Mind' in an effort to help family members address these challenges inside a family business context. To answer the question: Why did we select this audience for our new book? The answer is simple: family-owned businesses have, and will continue to have, a significant impact on global economies, while many have stood the test of time.”
To add perspective, these 10 family-owned businesses make substantial contributions to the GDP and shape our daily lives:
1. Wal-Mart/Owned by: Walton Family Annual Revenues: $421.8 Billion
2. Ford Motor Co./Owned by: Ford Family Annual Revenues: $128.9 Billion
3. Cargil/Owned by: Cargill & MacMillan Families Annual Revenues: $107.8 Billion
4. Koch Industries/Owned by: Koch Family Annual Revenues: $100 Billion

“Further, 1/3 of all companies in the S&P 500 index are family businesses,” adds, Mary Ann Zimmerman, Co-Author, MC, LPC, LISAC, and Managing Director of Mindability. “But what happens if the company hits a bump in the road? Or, if succession planning issues and arguments surface? With less than 30 percent of family businesses surviving into the 3rd generation, this could devastate a company unless they adapt tools and guidance from trusted experts.”
Given these generational odds, is it possible for these businesses to find a path to success? If so, where can family business owners turn to avoid high drama and get answers to tough questions? “The topic of self-help is critical for everyone, but even more so for members in a family business where the potential for conflict looms under the surface,” states François M. de Visscher, Founder of De Visscher & Company LLC. “The Family Business Road Map to Peace of Mind, is an important addition to the field of helping families achieve their financial and family goals. This book is a gem.”
