According to Harvard Business School professor John Davis, family-owned businesses (FOBs) account for approximately 66 percent of all businesses around the world, yet they provide 70 to 90 percent of the global GDP or productive results. They are much more productive than publicly financed corporations and they are also more likely to donate time and talent to philanthropic activities.
In their new book, BUSINESS IS BUSINESS: Reality Checks for Family-Owned Companies, award-winning advisors Kathy Kolbe and Amy Bruske provide a common-sense roadmap through the complex terrain of family businesses.
