Running a business is hard work. It's even harder when you're taking over for someone who's not ready to give it up. It's harder still when that person kinda sorta thinks you're a failure.
This peek into the script of ABC's Family Tools sums up this phenomenon:
Here's the deal. I poured decades of blood, sweat, and tears into that business. It's like a son to me. And my feeling now with you right next to me is, "Who besides my real son could I get to run it?"
I appreciate that sentiment, Dad.
No, seriously, who? I'm still trying to come up with someone. If you can think of anybody else, let me know.
