Why You MUST Use (Start Following? Proven Processes To Keep Your Family Business Competitive


Why Your Vision MUST Be Tied To Proven Processes To Keep Your Family Business Competitive


What Got You Here Isn’t Going To Get You There

Fear. Anxiety. Overwhelm. Excitement. These are just some of the emotions that are often churned up during an intergenerational transition where staying ahead of the competition in the current environment demands that new processes and ideas be used. 


What got your family business to where it is today isn’t likely to move you forward tomorrow.


As more family businesses are handed down to the next generation, the ability to adapt will become critical.


For those who try to stay the “that’s the way we’ve always done it” course, failure almost certainly awaits.


Perhaps the most quoted statistic in the world of family business is this one: 30% of family businesses make it to the second generation, 10-15% make it to the third and 3-5% make it to the fourth generation.


DISRUPTIVE SUCCESSOR can help you beat those odd 


DISRUPTIVE SUCCESSOR offers a playbook for today’s next generational family member who needs to navigate through the increasing number of challenges and potential roadblocks that didn’t exist before.



“At some point, every business owner begins to think about their legacy; for a family business owner, it may be the main reason to get up every morning. Don’t waste another minute—invest in your family business—read this book.”

“Jonathan Goldhill has used his extensive business experience as an entrepreneur, consultant, and coach to create the ‘how to’ manual for family business. As a family business survivor myself, I concur with Goldhill’s message and appreciate the many action steps suggested in the book to help cement the valuable knowledge.”

“It’s always interesting that staff do not always follow your instructions as you would wish, but as soon as an outsider comes in, they eat it up. A coach or an advisor is an absolute necessity. I used them all the time and was able to grow my business from six to 200 employees. The advice and strategies shared in this book would have been invaluable to me to convince my staff that what I was saying was important and should be acted on. And, Jonathan is the ideal person to help you out.”
