Don Schwerzler has been studying and advising family business entrepreneurs since 1967. He is the founder of the Family Business Institute, based in Atlanta, Georgia, and organized one of the first college programs to help entrepreneurs who were interested in staring a family business.
Something special seems to happen every year when Easter is in the air. No matter your religious beliefs, the thought of furry bunnies and fuzzy duc...
You cannot develop a relationship with your children and grandchildren (and they are all yours) without giving your blended family personal attention.
First of all, everyone involved is an adult. This makes them peers. No longer is the parent-child dynamic in play... or at least, it shouldn't be. Adults are presumed to be independent, capable of decision-making, and no longer in need of active, hands-on parenting.
Maybe it's you, your wife and two dogs; maybe it's you and your non-wedded partner for life; maybe it's the two of you, your pet iguana named Fred and a boat. Maybe it's simply, beautifully, YOU, living your life to its fullest and doing just fine, thankyouverymuch.
Why do I constantly feel what I've done isn't enough? After 15-hour days, I somehow feel guilty sitting down to rest. Whenever people approach me to offer help, I often wonder if they're thinking, How can she be tired? She's not working.
What precisely Moynihan did to defend privilege is utterly unclear. Regardless, it is Spielberg, not Moynihan, doing the narrating and implying. What Moynihan said was that racism and poverty produced family breakdown, not that poor African-Americans caused either.

I wear makeup. Not every day, but then, I work from home, so half the time I don't put on my clothes, let alone my face. But if I'm going out and I have time, I'll do my makeup. But what message am I sending my kids?
Some couples weren't meant to be married to each other. Ever. That's a cold, harsh thing for a wedding planner to say - heck, I need clients - but I think it's important for brides and grooms to realize that the simple act of having planned a wedding doesn't actually mean they have to get married.
Our interactions with family and friends are often social media-dependent. If grandma and mom aren't privy to a party or event, oh well. We'll tell them about it a week later. Our Instagram and Facebook friends see pictures of an event before family even knows there was one in the first place.
I found that when life didn't go quite right and I just couldn't fix things that if I leaned into gratitude I could find something beautiful even in the mess, the pain and the awkwardness.
As both a ringmaster and a man, it is all at once awe-inspiring and humbling to look upon the enormity of a life such as Col. John Herriott's. A steep standard he has left, and it is well worth the ascent. In circus, we never say "goodbye," rather we say "see you down the road."
