Check the fine print on the family Crest

When you are the heir to the family business, be sure you have read the fine print. Many children follow the matriarch or patriarch into business, searching for the love they did not feel growing up, and to their surprise they always are just a year away.

Also you may not consider the loss of all your siblings as you reach for the brass ring. Often jealousy shows up with a great deal of judgment.

There are also many misunderstandings around shares. Parents gift shares to the kids to transfer assets tax free and then an expectation follows around getting dividends.

There are many ways the family crest will seduce you. Just remember to flip it over and get the fine print.
