Managing a family and work is always difficult. And managing a family and a business is even tougher. When you are in business, it is primarily your responsibility to look after the work, meet the datelines, interests of your client, and you must also manage the employees efficiently. You will need to manage the finances and do the tax planning as well. You will definitely be busy, but you should still somehow manage to find the time for parenting too. Your child will want your company, and you cannot deny him/her, no matter how busy you are. Balancing business/work and family is definitely not easy, and any help is certainly welcome. The Family Business Learning Center of Vancouver is offering this help now, and making things a bit easier for the family business.
Traditionally, family businesses have not been managed professionally. But all that is history now. These days, family run businesses are going for good governance, investment and estate planning, and even succession plans. Family leadership is welcome, but these enterprises are open to getting professional inputs as well. Many members of the family also have professional training.
The fact is, most of these training programs deal with managing the business, employees and financial planning. But most of them do not show how to manage work and family life efficiently. This is where they lack. As a result, quite often, the family gets neglected. If a person tries too hard to manage both, then his or her health can break down too. In fact, we see this, all too often. The Family Business Learning Center is aiming to cover this gap.
