As a daughter raised in a family that owns a business, you may decide that working in the family business makes sense for you. You may also decide to seek other opportunities. Your decision to join the business, at whatever time in your life, rests on a variety of factors, such as your personal interests, your talents and skills, your family relationships, and your values. Whether or not you decide to work in the business, your decision about the work you want to do, and where you want to do it, is important, particularly in the early stages of your work life.
These posts cover topics such as career choice, change and development as well as how to have the hard conversations about career with your family and how to make sure you’re not sacrificing your own growth, development, and fulfillment while working in your family’s business.
