Five reasons why you should come to the 2022 virtual family business conference

Posted in   |  March 25, 2022

The family business conference will unite your family through real family business lessons and strategies that can help your business live on for the next generation. Why should you join us on April 28th and 29th, either in-person or virtually? Aside from the star-studded agenda, here are the top five reasons to attend the family business conference.

1. Learn how to get more profit from your business.

Mike Michalowicz, author of Profit First, knows a thing or two about how to best profit from business.

Mike’s Profit First methodology flips the script on how we think of profit. Mike, who recently sat down with us to discuss his ideas, had this to say: “At first for some, Profit First is a scary construct to think about. Business owners are conditioned to throw money at problems that arise in our businesses and then scramble to make more sales to get more cash. Profit First, if followed correctly, will sustain a business through a crisis, create a solid accounting and money management system and ensure healthy profitability going forward.”

2. Solve your family’s dynamics.

Do you want to know the theme of the most common calls and emails our team has received in 2022? Family Dynamics.

We’re going to talk about understanding family dynamics so you can communicate better. Understanding where people are coming from greatly removes pressures and stresses inside the family, and that creates a situation where alignment can happen. Based on speaker Joe Astrachan’s work with families and research, the more aligned the family, the better the business does.

Let’s get to work on those family dynamics!

3. Cultivate your family business culture.

Establishing a healthy culture at your family business is one of the best things you can do for your business, family, and co-workers.

  • Think 3D Solutions’ presentation on family business culture will address strategies for workforce and for leadership development. Tamien Dysart has this to say about culture: “Culture has been a buzzword for the last decade, but it’s never been as important as it is now. It’s the foundation to everything. A culture will emerge whether intended or not, but if it’s not one you’ve invested in, it’s going to be one you pay for.” As an added bonus, join the pre-conference session on April 1 presented by Tamien and Vaney.

4. Align your business with your purpose and priorities

There is a lot that goes into running a business, especially a family business. Take the time to determine what should really come next on your list of priorities.

  • John O’Leary will help us look inside ourselves through discovering our purpose. John has a reputation of changing lives in a positive way. To take in John’s keynote with your family sitting beside you has the potential to be life changing.

5. Get a chance to have your own business issues solved in real-time by Mike Michalowicz.

Do you have pressing business issues you’d like solved on the spot by a business expert? Look no further!

Following Mike’s keynote session, he will host a Q&A featuring business owners who will have five minutes each to ask Mike their most pressing business questions. He will solve these issues in real-time in front of the audience. What’s better than an instant answer to your most pressing business issue?
