    KEY QUOTES:
    * "My sister and I had a call with my mom, who was thinking of selling the business.  We told her 'Don’t sell…we’d like to work in the company.  Give us a chance.’”
    * “A lot of people my mom hired had watched me grow up.  It was challenging.  I had so much to learn and to prove. But I was also bringing in a lot of the best practice I had learned.  My sister and I had to change the culture, and our mom allowed us to change things."
    * “We’ve had some millenials come here—and I tell them the world is their oyster, but they have to work hard. I try to lead by example. I’m trying to bring on the right people-you’ve got to surround yourself with people who are smarter-people who are eager and ready to go.”

    THEME: The Importance of Trusting Your
    Advisor

    SUMMARY: Selecting an advisor who protects
    your interests is crucial for women in family businesses. Holly
    Isedale discusses how women in family businesses can learn to
    protect their information-and themselves.

    FEATURED GUEST: Holly Isdale: Founder and
    Strategist for Wealthaven, a consulting firm which serves very
    wealthy families and family businesses and helps them implement
    their goals.

    KEY
    QUOTES:



    “In family businesses, really good estate plans can fall short
    or get outdated very quickly. They're designed with one goal in
    mind: preserve the family business. This creates this awful
    dilemma…not thinking about the implications for the
    beneficiaries.”
    “For younger women, it’s about knowing yourself, how you make
    decisions, and how you maximize your voice in the process."
    “I’m a big believer that you should understand the landscape
    (of advisors)-meeting with other advisors, lawyers...not your
    father’s. It’s important for daughters to understand where the
    conflicts lie and where the allegiances lie.”

I loved the podcast featuring Best Upon Request's Jessica Lima Bollin. She was very honest and real in sharing her experience of a daughter working in and growing up in the family business. I also loved how Bollin touched on balancing motherhood and work. Daughters in Charge's Amy Katz asked great questions. Very helpful - keep this up!
