Family Owned Businesses Pursued by Large Firms

It's in the headlines every day: A venerable family firm sells to a larger firm. Successful family businesses are being increasingly sought-after by large corporations. While some businesses

Good Big Sister vs. Good Helper -- A Story for Women in Family Enterprise

When my now five-year-old daughter, Molly, was two, I was expecting twin boys. The pediatrician, who had a strong commitment to understanding psychology as much as pediatric medicine, gave me advice that changed my personal, parenting, and professional perspectives.
