Welcome!  Let's Get Started


Family businesses dominate all societies throughout the world.  Too often, family business owners and advisors struggle to reduce conflict.  You have probably experienced conflict with succession planning, wealth transfer, decision making, leadership.


Most family business owners struggle with 1) harmony ("How do we stay together?") and 2) ownership ("How do we keep this business alive?")

We created this membership program so that YOU can avoid those conflicts.  There are two sides to every coin.


Just like you, we are modeling collaboration.  India is a family business owner,  and Doug is a family business consultant.  We recently met in an online training program, like many consultants.  We created this program in 2020 because of our shared interest in the success of family businesses.   We have different perspectives.  We have different expertise.  Naturally, we do not always agree.


We created this Family Business Collaboration (FBC) because we know that:

  1.  Lively conversation stimulates leaders  
  2.  Family Business leaders demand expertise  
  3.  When we collaborate we are more able to solve problems  
  4.  All consultants need to assess and recommend solutions
  5.  Leaders must have a bias for taking action
