Family Is Business 

Family is business. What is the definition of family? According to Webster dictionary, a family is two or more people who share goals and values.  In addition, they have long-term commitments to one another and usually reside in the same dwelling place. Moreover, the members have a group of things related by common characteristics.

Therefore it’s people that are carrying out various responsibilities to keep commitments, in partnerships that are engaging in some sort of commerce. And within all of these systems, corporations, businesses, and partnerships are members of a family. Further more it is the language that is used in our society that blinds us to the fact that all of these systems are run by these families.  So words like the company, management, executives, government and so forth cause us to be ambiguous this fact.  Therefor it surmises to say that it is families that run everything, and these families form corporations, businesses, and partnerships, etc.   (more…)
