The Moment

The Moment

is the journey whether to enter or reject the Family Business. Where did this journey begin?

Rejecting It All

Could you imagine living the rest of your life without being the “kid”?

Nxt Door Neighbors

Living next  door to cousins was great, especially if your Aunt‘s cooler than your Mom. But does Mom really like spending 24/7 with Dad’s family?

First Job

How old were you? Did you get paid? Ha Ha. Did you get lunch out of it?

Family Business Rituals

Was it potluck dinner on inventory day? How come my family had to take inventory, but my cousins didn’t. In “Bloodline”, they had the Family Table.

Coming Home

Sure they’re crazy, but they’re your crazy. Whether you join the business or not, you’ve always have a home.


Forget fingers and toes. Forget whether you look like Aunt Edna. The only question anybody cares about going into the Family Business.
