    Default Is yours a family business?

    Hey guys and gals,

    I am looking for at least three companies that are family operated. Specifically I am interested on someone that has either taken over the business from their parent(s) OR someone who plans to hand over the reins to a child in the future - either long range or in the near future.

    Hey Jim as you know we are a family biz. This August will be 6 years for us. We started with a small loan and a dream. Here is our blog if you want to read more about how we started out. http://limobusiness.blogspot.com/

    Good to hear guys (and Marlo) but I need subjects who took over from their parents or parents who will give to a child. That is the focus. Not couples running a business.

    Jim, I'm sure you know that I used to work with my grandmother, father, and aunt before I left and started my own thing.

    We are a family business, my parents will be moving back to Wisconsin soon and leaving me with all the headaches, I mean, all the wonderful things that come with running a business! They will still own their portion but will more than likely be semi-retired, coming down to TX during the winters and spending the summers up in WI.

    Default Family run business-

    We are also a family run business- we started 5 years ago when our son was an infant. One day we hope to have him involved, eventually (if he chooses) we hope he will take it over. At this point he is our main wheel-washer! He pretends to answer the phone and even laughs at what his "pretend" clients want- ex: "you want a hummer for one hour during prom season- hahahaha!" He is a little wise-guy.
