ABSTRACT
The article presents the trends that have affected family businesses. It cites the new normal which includes a decline in population levels, a downward trend in the growth of real gross national product in the U.S. and productivity improvements that made unemployment a part of the new reality. It suggests for an enterprising family to proactively prepare for rapid change and its concept of transition must incorporate the notion of an evolution from one business concept to the next.
