Family Business Troubleshooter

Family Business Troubleshooter

If you are seeking a family business troubleshooter - you have come to the right place!

The Atlanta-based Family Business Institute was organized nearly 30 years ago – the world’s first multi-disciplined consulting team exclusively serving family-owned businesses.

Don Schwerzler , founder of the Family Business Institute, has been studying and advising family business entrepreneurs since 1967 – a career span of more than 40 years as a family business troubleshooter.

“If there is any one lesson I have learned in working with many hundreds of family businesses, it is that every family business is unique and complex in its own way,” says Schwerzler.

“Troubleshooting in a family business can be like being in a room of mirrors - each reflection or memory is slightly altered, each in a different way - for every member of the family.”

“For a family business troubleshooter, it is often difficult to identify reality from carefully constructed and long-held memories, even fantasies - and difficult to discern cleverly worded fictions,” notes Schwerzler.

We invite you to explore our site, Family Business Experts. It is the highest ranked, full service family business resource on the Internet.

Family Business Experts is a content-rich site that includes hundreds of pages of tips and success strategies for families in business together.

Our goal is to help family businesses grow, to help maintain healthy family relationships - and then, when the time is right, to help transition the business to the next generation OR to prepare the business for sale, if that is the best exit strategy for the owner.
