Family businesses and privately held businesses believe that transitioning from one generation to the next will happen naturally. However, while statistically over 75% of all businesses are family owned, run, or managed, over 65% fail to transition from one generation to the next. Most fail. However, those who realize that it is difficult and put forth some effort in educating and preparing themselves have a much higher success rate. Good leadership is essential to the success of a family business.
