Like a brick thrown through the plate-glass window of the
CEO’s office, the meeting room of the board of directors, or the
faculty club of the business school that hits you up all the time for

is very simple. Government should protect and defend
against domestic and foreign aggression the lives
and property of the persons under its jurisdiction, settle
disputes that arise, and leave the people otherwise free

elevate today? -Will I do better with a job or should I put in efforts
This is a very personal book. It has grown out of my years
observing, advising and learning lessons from some of
the world’s most successful family-owned businesses and
business-owning families. Also, the book in a sense records my personal
journey through a period of remarkable change, beginning in an era (the
late 1970s) when family companies were largely seen as quaint anachronisms

Whereas a few short years ago, it was a technological challenge to put a short, tiny video on a website, making those websites special; today websites are expected to provide video content for their viewers.
