Episode 56. Planning Power
Episode 57. Operating Power
Episode 58. Staffing Power

In this series, Al is teaching us all about family business and why so few of them work out.
Al grew up working in a family business with his Dad and his two older brothers in Long island, New York and like any family run business, he experienced problems. It was these experiences that led him to develop amazing processes around making family businesses run optimally.
This is first hand knowledge, from a very experienced expert.

Episode 1. Org Charts (Organisational Charts)

Having an Org Chart (Organisational Chart) in your business provides clarity around what everyone needs to be focussing on to help the business move forward to reach it’s goals.

In this podcast, Al talks about back when he was working in his family business with his brothers, there were many scenarios where more than one person was doing exactly the same task because they thought it was their role.
By communicating what each individual was responsible for and in what specific area of the business, Al was able to make the business far more efficient and far more profitable.

Interestingly, Al believes that every business of every size needs to have an organisational charts implemented, even if it’s just a single man band because as the business grows, it makes it clear, what roles someone needs to fill.
