A sale of the family business can result in many mixed emotions and so must be planned carefully. Some family members may welcome a sale, while others may see it as a loss of livelihood and may wish to stay involved in the business in some way. Therefore it is necessary to try to manage the sale process in a way which does not result in a falling out between family members.
