Family Business Secrets: How to Keep Your Business Thriving from Generation to Generation

Written by Irving Katz, MBA. ©2010


Family Business Secrets is a book that reminds family business owners how easy it is to only focus on our clients or products and services, and to forget about our business as a business


The author’s expertise as a family business advisor really helps make this book a practical support to bringing the business of our business back into focus.  Mr. Katz effectively incorporates case studies from previous clients as well as more well-known family businesses to further illustrate critical family business issues i.e. cash flow management, strategic planning, and succession planning .  His use of self-assessments at the beginning of each chapter helps the reader create a pragmatic baseline from which to learn from the material. 


This is a quick read that is quite useful for family business owners, family business members, and family business advisors alike.
