Successful ownership transition requires effective decision making at the top

Engaged Ownership is the definitive owner's guide to the family enterprise. Whether you're taking over a family business, family office, or trust, this book shows you how to work effectively with the management and board to keep the enterprise moving in the right direction. The first guide of its kind written from the owner's perspective, this book is designed to help owners who are truly committed to growing all forms of capital be successful in their role. You'll learn the time-tested process that helps you 'unstick' decision-making, become engaged and effective, and manage the transfer from owner control to shared ownership while minimizing risk. Improve communication and relationships with the board, and ensure that every stakeholder understands your strategies and vision for the future. You'll allay the fears that frequently accompany ownership transfers, and inspire a sense of teamwork that leads to sustainable success generation after generation.

As the Baby Boomers retire, business founders and entrepreneurs worldwide are transferring ownership of privately held enterprises to their children in record numbers. It can be a complex and difficult-to-navigate time for everyone involved. This book helps you smooth the way to a successful transition, and transcend the owner's traditionally passive role.

Learn to work effectively with management and the board Get everyone on the same page in terms of vision and direction Build relationships that lead to forward-thinking decision making Succeed in the ownership role by bringing your expertise to the fore

Ownership transfer often triggers a radical change in family enterprise, and if poorly managed, can turn a business in the wrong direction. Engaged Ownership shows you how to build a dynamic and effective partnership with trustees, board, and management, and become a successful steward of the family's financial, human, social, and operational capital.

There are few businesses as glamorous as owning a bar or club. You’ll be the proprietor of the establishment where people meet, greet, eat and drink. It’ll be a home away from home for some of your customers, and you’ll be the ruler of this social roost.

The profit potential for bars is incredible. By taking a $20 bottle of liquor, and selling it an ounce at a time for $1.50 and up, you can make as much as $192 per bottle. That’s a whopping 800 percent return on your investment!

Owning your own bar or club can mean long hours, meticulous attention to detail, giving up vacations and weekends, and sometimes dealing with unruly customers. But if you have a clear vision, do your homework, and learn the ins and outs of the business, it can also translate into a rewarding and financially successful enterprise. If you’re friendly, outgoing, like people and have good business sense, you’re already well on your way.

Our step-by-step guide will help you turn your dream into a moneymaking reality. We cover the several types of bars you can open–neighborhood bar, sports bar, brewpub, wine or martini bar, and nightclub–and how to get those bar stools filled with happy customers. The author explains step by step everything you need to know before opening your doors. Topics covered include how to:

•Research your target market
•Find the perfect location
•Hire a knowledgeable staff
•Navigate the red tape that accompanies serving alcohol and food
•Understand the logistics of inventory and equipping your bar
•Compete with other bars and nightlife venues
•Keep your clients entertained–and get them to make more purchases–once they’re in your bar
•And much more!

We share insider tips to increase your bottom line and make your venture a success. This easy-to-use guide also includes useful sample forms, cost-cutting ideas, common mistakes to avoid, and additional resources, plus step-by-step instructions, checklists, and work sheets that will guide you through every aspect of the start-up process. Order this book today and start living your dream.
