It’s an old adage: Familiar places breed familiar behaviors. A family trying to be a business can have unrealistic expectations that can never be met. The family doesn’t need an advisor-referee. It needs an advisor-pastor, a steward of the family. A family retreat sounds great, but it’s a business disaster. Steve and Michael love this video vignette from "Family Matters."
