How to ensure your family business keeps going
My latest guest is Reg Athwal, the Executive Chairman of The Athwal Organization & Family Office (TAO Legacy), the Founder & Chairman of RTS Global Partners (RTS: https://www.rtsgp.com); Founder & Chief Educator of the Family Business Academy (http://www.familybusiness.
I first ‘met’ Reg when I drifted into one of his rooms on Clubhouse, the social media audio app. I loved his deep knowledge and love for all things family business and the way he built a high value community that encourages and supports one another.
He is that rare individual, wise (no wonder a number of billionaires have him on speed dial) and a true polymath. It is no wonder that he has coached and mentored many with great results.
