Keeping the Vision Alive While You're Busy Making the Donuts
Your company may be efficient and hardworking, but if you don't know where you're going, you may never arrive. Forgetting your Raison d' etre is easy, especially in a family business, with all hands on deck, and no time for "meaningful"conversations. Ira Bryck, director of the UMass Family Business Center, will help you find that balance.
