Family businesses move through many transitions as they grow from Founders to much larger family enterprise systems. The components of this shift include among others: a range of family dynamics issues that can de-rail business or families, clarifying roles, committing to various business competencies, reaching agreements about reasonable expectations, building solid governance structures and creating a solid plan for continuity. Most of the critical landscape issues get caught within the porous boundary between family and business, are places where history and differences are triggers for behaviors and require everyone to gain an ability to engage in thoughtful and constructive conversations, meetings and retreats. In our time together, we will explore some of the differences that can create conflict, and some principles that help family business owners stay with the task of continuing legacy.

Few women can lead a family business in a male dominated industry like tile related manufacturing. Fewer can balance grace, humility and ingenuity while putting family first. Lisa Schaffer nee Clear, now President of FinPan Inc. and T.Clear Corporation, has done it all: even patenting a new solution.
ClearPath is the result of the family's need for accessibility. Lisa's niece Amy has Osteogenesis Imperfecta (OI) aka brittle bones-leaving her confined to a wheelchair. Mother of 2, Amy could not use and enjoy the family summer home with the bathroom not accessible. At 88, Lisa's mother struggled with a curb step and extended shower standing. With no available solution, they invented one. Now the family home has an accessible shower and the industry has a beautiful solution that doesn't require costly floor joist modifications.
The youngest of 4, Lisa, her husband, and both sons all work for FinPan. Lisa’s family has always had a family business. Her father oversaw her grandfather’s Drywall & Plastering business, while her mother started a Laundromat and Dry Cleaners where Lisa learned to read and write starting at three years old. She and her brother Steve, who also now works for FinPan companies, would watch them as they developed the product in her father’s friend garage, learning to mix concrete. Fin Pan Inc. was born around the kitchen table, forged from the strength of family.
