    Shirtsleeves to Shirtsleeves?

    Shirtsleeves to Shirtsleeves?

    In this episode of the show I discuss three common myths that are often thrown at family businesses as rules or facts in order for them to act to avoid becoming a statistic themselves.
    The first myth is that around the number of family businesses making it to the third generation and what the often cited statistics are actually related to.
    We then look at the shirtsleeves to shirtsleeves myth, which has been around far longer than the statistics about succession, but is equally as unreliable as the stats.
    I also cover the common statement that "all you need is Governance" and highlight why I believe that in fact the discussions around the issues that can lead to governance are far more valuable than governance itself.

    Myth of the Silver Spoon

    Myth of the Silver Spoon

    I am joined on this show by Kristin Keffeler as we discuss the myth of the silver spoon. This happens to be the title of Kristin's excellent new book which you can find out more about here
    In this really engaging conversation with Kristin we hear about her own story of growing up in a wealthy family.
    Kristin discusses how our relationship with wealth is not the same as our relationship with money and that there are various forms of clutter that, if we can address, we can transform those relationships and become our true selves.

    Rules or Myths?

    Rules or Myths?

    In this episode of the show I am joined by Dr Jim Grubman as we discuss an article he has written for International Family Offices. In this article he explores the so called "70% Rule". This "rule" states that 70% of wealth transfers globally, fail. 
    In the show Jim highlights which studies, evidence and statistics went in to the publication of the "rule" and why it is essential for practitioners and the families that we serve to ensure that we are not repeating so called "rules" as a marketing or fear tactic. 
    We also look at what can be done in the future to ensure we are using accurate, robust and sufficiently well diversified research criteria to understand patterns rather than to create rules or myths that can be misleading. 
    Useful Links
    The articles that Jim references in the show can be found on his home page http://www.jamesgrubman.com/ or you can directly download the article using this link 
    Jim also references an article that he write for The Practitioner, a publication from The Family Firm Institute (FFI). You can access that article here
