What Our Family Business Customers Are Saying:
Our family and our business was in serious trouble. Out of desperation we contacted Chris and hired Alberta Business Builders to help us. They led the financial turnaround of our business and the ownership succession of our business to our son. We don't know where our family or our business would be today if we did not hire Alberta Business Builders.

Family Owned Business Succession and Transition Planning
"I Know I Need a Succession Plan for My Family Business, But Where Do I Start?"
Many family business owners do not know where to start when it comes to creating a succession plan for their business.
This is understandable since most family business owners only go through the succession planning process once in their lifetime.
We are Succession Planning and Transition Planning Consultants. It's our specialty.
You don't need to be experts at it, because we are.
Engineering a successful transition of the family business to the next generation is a critical challenge for the family business.
This challenge can be significantly eased and the outcome improved with the right wisdom and advising.
In family-owned enterprises there often are not clear plans to hand power to the next generation.
And a lack of planning and clarity leads to conflict and divisions, which can delay or derail succession plans.
Just fearing conflict can keep stakeholders from making important and timely decisions.
Less Than 30% of Family Owned Businesses are Able to Transition Their Business to the Second Generation...
Don't Let Your Family and Your Family Business Become a Statistic.
And Less Than 15% are Able to Successfully Transition to the Third Generation.

Family Business Succession Planning
In our experience supporting family-owned businesses, succession planning, or the lack of succession planning is one of the key factors that cause a business family to breakdown.
In fact, the failure to create a succession plan for your family business may be the major contributing factor to the challenges that your business family is facing.
Why Family Business Succession Plans are So Important
Family Business Succession Plans are important because a well designed succession plan meets the needs of the business, the individual family members, and the family-at-large.
When the needs of the business, family members, or the family go ignored or unmet, problems within the family business will soon arise.
And these problems won't just go away.
The Do's and Don'ts of Succession Planning
You have to talk about Succession Plans, even if, and when it's difficult.
It's never to late to start. Don't ignore or postpone getting the process started.
A Succession Plan is only a plan when it is written and signed.
The need for Succession Planning never goes away until it is addressed.
Often, the longer you wait, the more difficult Succession Planning becomes.
Neglect to Formalize
A Succession Plan without a contract is just a conversation.
