The many different types of businesses create as many different lifestyles. What does that mean for those of us who are Married to the Business? We are the unsung heroes of this great economy. Do you feel like you're married to the business? If you are the spouse or partner of a business owner, then this book is for you. The spouses of business owners are often those who stand at the ready, in the background, waiting for the other shoe to drop, or the ball to be thrown. We are all the helpmates of our partners. We are forever waiting, staring at the clock, for the phone call telling us our spouse made it safely to a business meeting across the country. We are regularly getting the kids through dinner, baths, and bedtime all on our own. We are consistently waiting up until all hours of the night for our spouse to get home after completing "just one more thing." Author, Kerry Anderson, is married to a business owner and serial entrepreneur. She gave up her career to be a stay at home hero. In Bed With the Business tells their story and outlines how YOU TOO can survive and flourish and still have strong personal relationships with your spouse and family. Learn the tools and techniques she and her husband have developed to navigate the chaotic world of marriage and entrepreneurship.

This casual yet informative read offers anecdotal advice on achieving financial as well as emotional success within a family-owned business. Having appeared on many national radio & television shows, the author, a graduate of Princeton University with a degree in Psychology, has gathered the entire realm of experiences from events in his own life & those of others in a unique & informative collection of thought-provoking & hard-learned lessons. Drawing upon over 20 years experience with family businesses, each chapter clearly & sometimes humorously offers examples of potential conflict as well as remedies & solutions.

Complete with bullet-point summaries at the end of each chapter, the lessons are meant to assist the reader in leveraging the family aspect to further success. With the majority of businesses in the United States family-owned & operated, ASSUMING THE POSITION addresses a wide audience of varying ages, cultures, industries & educational levels.

The Primacy of Financial Objectives

The pursuit of financial profit has always been, and will continue to be, the core concern for private sector organisations. There has been an unquestioning acceptance that the maximisation of financial return is the primary driver for all private sector firms regardless of the nature of these firms. This book challenges the simplicity of that assumption. Using empirical research undertaken in a variety of private sector organisations in Germany this book demonstrates that there are differences which reflect the nature of the firm in question. The research compares family and non-family firms and finds significant variations in organisational objectives. The priorities, structure and financial drivers of family firms differ markedly from those of non family firms and, unsurprisingly, strongly reflect the family influence. Yet, the dominant paradigm in current management thinking is centred on public limited companies (PLC) managed by professionals and overseen by a Board of Directors representing the interests of a large number of shareholders. Even here the evidence is that the achievement of maximum return on invested capital is not necessarily the first and only priority. In western economies family firms have significant macroeconomic importance. Taking a differentiated view on private sector organisations matters to practitioners and politicians who must ensure their decisions are being made on the right premises. Researchers may feel invited to interdisciplinary research initiatives that integrate findings from family business research and other academic fields.
