The People We Don't Talk About Enough: Spouses of Family Business Owners
In many family businesses the spouses of the owners have a huge influence on the business. They are often the people owners are most comfortable talking to when there is conflict. They often help harmonize relationships. Your community might see them as a leader and a representative of the business. They play a huge role in raising the next generation of the business. The things they influence are often the things that make it possible to continue a business in the next generation. Their participation (whether they work in the business or not) often increases or decreases the success of the family business. Despite this huge role, family business research and writing rarely talks about them - unless they are talking about what happens if you divorce them. Join this interactive session where you'll learn more about how to partner with your spouse to increase the likelihood that your family business will succeed.
