Family and Strategy

When someone doesn’t want to do something, it can be incredibly difficult to nail them down to get it done. I’m speaking from experience — recent experience.

Getting my dad to work on this project, one that will determine the company’s future strategy, is like pulling teeth. I get one at a time. I don’t think we’ve spent more than five minutes at a time talking about the project. The one time we did spend five minutes on it was due to a power outage. He didn’t have any other projects to run to.

So here I am, fleshing out my ideas for strategy, and knowing that they’re no good without input from the boss. I know this happens in other businesses, ones that don’t have the complication of family, but family makes this especially frustrating.
