MBFLP – Balancing Family and Business in a Family Business

MBFLP Balancing Family and Business

One of the things that makes a family business attractive is the freedom to have more time with your spouse and kids! Yet entrepreneurs quickly learn there’s a balancing act going on — it’s no longer your employer which drives your schedule, but your own sense of urgency and ambition! This show, we talk with experienced business owners and trainers Philip and Carroll Sue Priddy about how to make sure you keep these two valuable things in balance, and how to keep “family” and “business” in harmony–not competition!

MBFLP – Entrepreneurship As A Family Thing

In 2006, Hal left the corporate world and he and Melanie started their own company. Three years later, God gave them the business which actually took off and grew, the business they’re in today. Are you interested in “coming home” and running a family business? What should you think about before anything else? And what role do you want your family to have? This episode, we talk frankly about why that first business never really got off the ground, and what made all the difference in our second try. Maybe you, too, have a future in Entrepreneurship As A Family Thing!

MBFLP – Entrepreneurship with Ethics with John Dodd

MBFLP Entrepreneurship John Dodd

 

There’s a lot of talk about doing business from home, whether it’s Mom and Dad starting a family business, or teenagers creating a microbusiness project. What you believe about money, wealth, and the government’s role, will make a difference in how you go about that business — and how successful you are! This week we meet with John Dodd, the creator and director of an innovative program to teach smart business with a strong foundation of personal responsibility, philanthropy, and integrity. Over 7500 students have completed the program so far – including four of ours! Join us as we explore the Free Enterprise Leadership Challenge!
