Seven essential questions for family business development


This is how family business owners get unstuck

If you’re here because you want business success, I promise you that business development tools and techniques (like the five-minute strategy you’ve just downloaded) can help.

I understand the need for a successful family business – it’s what drives me in my work too.

I know you want to justify the sacrifices you’ve made and ensure your business has a positive impact on your family’s lifestyle. I get you want a legacy, and I know you want to be the face of a business that works.  

And if you’re not exactly where you want to be, who can blame you for feeling a little despondent! But don’t worry – you’re not alone…
  • It’s not unusual to feel stuck and frustrated – especially when growth is slow
  • It’s not uncommon to lack a clear focus and direction
  • And of course you’re itching to accelerate your progress and raise your game!
The good news is that whatever the current state of your company, business development can help you achieve results, benefit your family, and take your business to the next level.

And it all starts with these SEVEN fundamental questions…

Just seven questions to reset your path

Imagine going to the office knowing exactly what’s needed to hit the big, life-changing goals.
  • No more firefighting
  • No more running your business from day-to-day
  • No more disappointment at slow progress
Instead, you can work with clarity and focus.

You feel more motivated than ever because you have confidence that you’re finally working on the right stuff. In return, the family is tighter because they can see progress too.  

Tell me, how different would it look to work your business in this way?

Well, this is the sort of transformation that’s possible when you answer (in detail) the seven questions in my video training.

These questions work – I promise. They’ve been tried and tested – countless times.

You see these are the exact same questions I use with all my private consulting clients. And when answered with diligence and attention, they can completely transform your approach to family business.

What you get

My ‘Seven essential questions for family business development’ training.

Answering these seven questions is the FIRST STEP that all my private clients take when they commit to create a business that improves their family’s life.

When you invest in this training, you’ll have (almost) the same experience of working one-to-one with me, but from the comfort of your own home.

Why trust me?

I’ve found that most business development advice falls short for family-run firms.

Here’s why…

Generic advice is either too ‘corporate’ or fails to take into account ‘the family’.

And as a family business owner you know it’s IMPOSSIBLE to separate the family element from the business – the two are completely entwined (which is just as it should be).

What’s more, family businesses also need to manage generational differences, succession planning, and family relationships in ADDITION to everything else.

This stuff just doesn’t happen in non-family-run firms.

But if you ignore these influences in your family business, it’s near on IMPOSSIBLE to create the success that you want.

And this is what makes the Family Business Man a little different…

ALL our business development advice is tailored specifically for family businesses. Everything we do focuses on family first, business second. And that’s why these seven questions work.

So if you’re committed to making your family business a success, take the first step today.

Invest time in the ‘Seven essential questions for family business development’ training and see for yourself, the difference your answers will make to the future of your business, but more importantly your family.

The Family Business Man

P.S. I know, first-hand, what it’s like to run a family business. I’ve had my fair share of failures, but I’ve had a lot of success too. What’s more, I understand how it feels to create a business that transforms the lives of your kids, your partner, and even your grandkids.

There is a formula to success and a big part of creating a business that works is to get clear on where you’re going and how you’re going to get there.

And that’s exactly what business development can help you do.

So why not fast track your success, avoid some of the common pitfalls, and get clarity on what you need to do to create the business you really want?

Family businesses matter.

I’m passionate about this and I’d love to help you and your family create the success that you desire and deserve.

So what do you think? Let’s make it happen.

Peter delivered two fantastic sessions to over 100 business owners during our National Training Event. The success of any event of this type, is implementing the training in a practical sense. Just days after the training we’ve had feedback from the network that they have already begun implementing Peter’s themes in their own business. Thank you Peter for involvement.
