Every Family’s Business: 12 Common Sense Questions to Protect Your Wealth
By Tom Deans Ph.D.

From Bruce McGechan’s book, “Selling a New Zealand Business with ‘No Regrets'”, in Chapter 9: Family Businesses, he writes,
“Every Family’s Business challenges the idea that successful family businesses must keep family issues and business issues separate. Tom Deans believes this separation is impossible and that most family businesses are set up from the beginning to fail because they attempt it. Tom offers a compelling argument for why families should be clear about when they will sell the business and to whom. Families that are upfront and realistic about their goals for transitioning ownership of the business can avoid jealousy, sibling rivalry and regrettable inter-family lawsuits. Tom has designed the 12 Common Sense Questions offered in Every Family’s Business to start a conversation among family members with the view of protecting wealth and relationships.”

From Chris Snider’s book, “Walking to Destiny”,
“If you haven’t already, read Every Family’s Business: Common Sense Questions to Protect Your Wealth by Dr. Thomas Deans. Tom’s position is that selling the business is often your best bet, even if family is involved. And he takes a hard stance on gifting. If you are going to transition to a son or daughter, make them buy it from you at market value.”
