One answer was, “One good idea can change your life.” He was forever hunting for ideas to give him a leg up on his competition. For me, FFI Practitioner is the mother lode for ideas that can change your life. Reading it is a must.
In a world with increasing complexity, FFI Practitioner takes on an important intermediary role between theory and practice. I enjoy reading on relevant topics offering real insights from and for family business experts worldwide.
