This is the first blog post from Jane Richardson. I am a professional marketer with over 10 years experience in legal marketing. In 2011 I decided to make the break and join my family business, Jos Richardson and Son Ltd.
Our family business is 120 years old next year and has been a huge part of my life. My father is the Managing Director and currently the business operates car dealerships and fuel filling stations. I come from a family of entrepreneurs and family businesses ranging from our own business in motor retail to farming and edible oils exporters, I always knew that running my own business was something I wanted to do so when my father suggested that I consider helping the family business with their marketing and HR I jumped at the chance.
This blog is about the joys and challenges of working for a family business. I hope you enjoy!
