To Everything There Is A Season (3)


Ecclesiastes teaches us about seasons in life. The Byrds reminded us of this truth in their song, Turn! Turn! Turn! Just as seasons change throughout the year, seasons also change in a family business. Sometimes, the changing season means transitioning from one generation to the next. In nature, as winter moves into spring, there are specific changes that occur. Daylight lengthens. The sun shines warmer. Trees bud. Flowers bloom.



Plan for the successful change of seasons in your family business.
