A bit about me

So, you're... (circle the correct answer):
A) ...thinking of leaving the family business.
B) ...are about to leave the family business.
C) ...have already left the family business.

If you've circled one of the above, I am your friend. I left the family business after over 13 years, filling different senior position all with good pay and conditions.

Why did I leave? I came to the understanding that the emotional burden that came with working in a family business was taking a toll not only on myself, but on my wife and children too. And once I figured that out, the "golden handcuffs" could no longer lock me down.

The decision to leave was a long process with many ups and downs. Actually leaving was even more difficult.

If leaving is still fresh for you, all I can tell you is: stay focused and confident. In the long run it is the best thing for you and your family.
