Going into an established family business certainly has its perks, but it also has its fair share of challenges. However, if we get really intentional about how we run a family business, there’s no reason why we can’t go from strength to strength.

What are the kinds of conversations we need to have, before taking up a position in a family-owned company? How can we ensure we’re fostering a healthy culture on our teams that encourages top agents outside of our families to join?
