Diseñar e implementar de manera efectiva un proceso correcto de sucesión es todo un arte.
Frecuentemente la planificación patrimonial de los artistas al igual que la de los fundadores de las empresas familiares se sostienen en la idea de que puede posponer la planificación hasta el último minuto y quizás hasta la vejez, pero igual que en la vejez del famoso pintor y escultor Pablo Picasso quien se negó a planificar su sucesión patrimonial argumentando que si lo hacía al día…Continue

Documenting the values of a family is an important step in helping to build family legacy. I use the word 'documenting' because most families do not take the time to write down what is fundamentally important to the family. Our family faced the same inclination to avoid the hard work of putting into words the values that were the bases of our decisions.…Continue

Family businesses, as it turns out, have a number of things in common with social enterprises. Both have a need to thrive economically, but are also motivated by non-economic goals such as helping others and enriching their communities. Both must deal with short-term decisions and demands, but many are guided by a long-term orientation that also influences decision making and action. Relative to nonfamily firms, both face the challenge of aligning the varied and sometimes divergent interests…Continue

“The rise and fall of the House of Seagram”, “Dethroning the King : The hostile takeover of Anheuser-Busch”, “Steinberg: The breakup of a family empire” or “Gucci Wars”, to cite a few, are documented storytelling books about the successes and failures of business families. Standalone from the actual facts, what strikes the reader most is the key role played by emotions in defining or shaping the family and…Continue

One of the fascinating things about working with family businesses is discovering how different all families are, each one special and challenging in its own way. Despite the seemingly unique set of challenges presented by each family I have worked with, in almost every case there lurks an issue with miscommunication at its root. Here, I take a look at some of the most common examples of familial miscommunication and provide some ideas for their remedy…
My first example is…Continue

RE-THINK HOW YOU SPEND YOUR TIME AND MONEY
By Levi G. Clock, Principal of Clockwork Financial
One of my favorite quotes is “You don’t know what you don’t know...” and I believe we’d all have to agree with that one.
If everything you thought you knew about money was actually not true, when would you want to know about it?
If you’re anything like me…the answer is right now! So if that’s you… then take a short coffee break, sit back, and…Continue

There have been numerous studies by specialists dissecting the post World War II “baby boomers”, and the successive new comers in the second half of last century. From the hippies, Vietnam war protesters, generation X, Y and all the other letters so I have nothing else to add on that subject.
However starting with the new Millennium and at least in my practice in Mexico and Latin America plus a few U.S. Hispanic owned family businesses, my own family and numerous young sons and…Continue

A main factor for the long-term success of family firms is entrepreneurial non-family employees. But a perennial and still unanswered question is: how can family firms make their non-family employees behave entrepreneurially, meaning that they recognize and explore entrepreneurial opportunities, that they develop and implement new ideas? That they think and act as if it would be “their” company?
One might intuitively think of making those employees actual co-owners of the family firm…Continue

One of the challenges facing the senior generation (generally the parents) for families in business is how to be fair to younger generations (generally the children and their spouses) in distribution of the estate. Families in business typically own various assets, ranging from highly liquid personal accounts to real estate and family business stock. The equal division of personal accounts can generally be accomplished without dissension in the family. However, even an equal distribution…Continue
