The construction of family culture and evergreen family business

The United Nations views the family as the basic unit of society. It's undoubtedly the foundation of a country and the world's development. However, for family business , the firmness and stability of family culture and doctrine are the key factors for a family to transfer from generation to generation.

When business owners retired, the succession planning of family business gradually becomes a social problem, which has caused extensive concerns. Meanwhile, the inheritance of family culture instead of family business has been ignored by many family members. In other words, the major risk of family business is not the succession planning of family business and wealth transfer from generation to generation, but how to pass family culture, family spirit and family doctrines to the next generation, these are the cornerstone to support a family to escape from the curse of three generations and become an evergreen family.

It is no doubt that the development of family culture and doctrines rely on the cultivation of family members' moral character from generation to generation. Therefore, the nature of family business inheritance is family culture inheritance; the nature of family culture inheritance is the construction of family culture and the development of family moral character; the nature of family culture construction is parents'self-cultivation and self-discipline as examples, and family members follow the example of their parents.
