Following in Father's footsteps.

Ok, anyone of here inherited the business or work with their son, hoping to pass the business down?

What problems have you incurred in your relationship?

When Good Ole Dad slowly walks away has the clientiel dropped the son?

Or has policies pretty much remaned the same?

I have been around Dad's studio for many many years. Now Dad has decided (After reading the sudden of this forums of the passing of a man suddenly, Dad has decided to start getting things straightened physically and what we need to take care of relationshipwise and BUSINESS WISE, what do we need to take care of?

Is that name a joke? I would say it all would depend on the son and the son's ATTITUDE and abilities. Sounds like you are worried about taking over but your dad must trust you so step up to the plate and just do it or tell him right off you will not and let him sell out. Fence sitting will NOT be an answer and will kill the family and maybe youre dad.


Are you drunk?

Drew if you cannot understand this question, maybe you should be back in school working on your studies instead of the computer
The word of and on can at time be interchanged check your ENGLISH BOOK.

What problems have you incurred in your relationship?
Did the Dad or Son who agreed to trade off the business have proplems with the other during the transition period, were these problems theirs alone?

When Good Ole Dad slowly walks away has the clientiel dropped the son? Were the customers there only because or the Dad's rep with clients or was it the quality of the work?

Or has policies pretty much remained the same?
Policies, you know pick, drop off. Were the policies in print or just in the air between Dad and son

Dad's studio is not the name, are you dinking. the word Dad as applied and implied in the original text shows that my father is the sole prop.

Come on you two this was written at 3rd grade level. Maybe you need to hit the books.

I say you are at a third grade level and can not deal with the transition if you have to ask such common sence basic questions. It sounds like you are the one needing to hit the books of business and banking and be a man that can rise to the occation. No one here is going to hold youre hand. You are annalizing WAY to much. I am feeling sorry for you're dad fast. First go to the local government small business office or library and ask for publications they print on this subject, they are free and written on your level. I think that this forum is NOT the place to be for you on this subject

If you are such a friggin' know it all, why the hell are you asking us third graders? If you have been around the studio all those years, I would think that you would know his customers and they you and your work. If the clientel drops when good ole dad walks away, they must know that you do crap work and live off of dad's earnings!

Although your original post was a bit confusing. I will offer my thoughts on the subject. A major transition In any business can and will have an effect on the business. To what degree depends on the changes made. and how they were implemented. Products have been literally wiped from the market for things as simple as a change in Packaging. The trick to a successful transition is to make it smooth and slowly. Let the customers come to realize you play an active roll in the mounting process along with dad. Become familiar with them. and allow them to become familiar with you. When the day comes that dad slips away, and you take over. Most customers will hardly notice. And what ever you do, Do not Make any drastic changes soon after the take over. Doing so only announces the change.

It will only work if you can offer the same or better quality and have a good business sense. Your Dad has laid the foundation. Only YOU can build the structure that will or will not stand the test of time. Good Luck! Jeff F.


OK, take a 1st grade english class first...

How do you even read the directions for Buckeye Supreme?

Maybe your father should hire me to come and take over HIS shop. The first thing I would do is fire his deadbeat son.
