“Linda elegantly tackles two of the most emotional subjects in the world—family and money. The Business of Family is a valuable resource filled with engaging stories and actionable strategies that can help families find common ground and sustain their wealth for generations to come.”

— Hannah Shaw Grove, Founder of Private Wealth magazine and author of The Family Office: Advising the Financial Elite

“I like this book for a number of reasons. It’s written in a clear, concise and understandable approach. The advice is applicable to all types of family businesses. This book addresses a broad range of issues and could easily appeal to a much broader market than just family business owners. It could easily be used to manage the family without a business. It’s a great book that will serve any family as a guidebook to developing a stronger foundation when starting a family or building a family business.”
