BUSINESS INTERRUPTED: Successfully Navigating the Interruptions in the Family Business Cycle
Family business: A distinct, vital form of business representing 80 percent of all firms in the US, 85 percent in the European Union, 90 percent in the Middle East, and 99 percent in Japan. As the percentages indicate, family business is everywhere. In INTERRUPTED ENTREPRENEURSHIP, multigenerational family business member Raméz A. Baassiri seeks answers to an array of hurdles that every family business has faced and could face, not only from the perspective of his own family business but also from the viewpoint of dozens of family businesses that have confronted interruptions and not only weathered the storms, but thrived. While this is not a one-solution-fits-all book for business interruptions, it is intended as a glimpse into history fro which you can derive lessons and gain inspiration for your own exponential possibilities for the future by offering the following: • a wealth of historical knowledge • practical support • valuable insight • viewpoints that span age, gender, and geography • observations not only of the past and present, but of the evolving landscape of the future
Interruptions are uncontrollable, but you can choose how to confront and deal with those interruptions— and do so in a beneficial way to your business and your personal well-being.

About the Author

RAMÉZ A. BAASSIRI, family man, entrepreneur, and writer, his family’s journey to create an agile, adaptable business is just as important as the day-to-day operations undertaken by the dynamic, multinational team members that constitute the company. Developing long-standing relationships with a wide variety of regional and international suppliers spanning various industries and continents was a journey that began with the bold steps of Raméz’s migrating ancestors from Lebanon to the far-off shores of South America, Africa, and the Gulf.

The family business owes its current standing to the bold steps, leadership, and determination of Mr. Abdul Hamid Baassiri (Raméz’s late father), a global citizen. The entrepreneurial spirit started with A.H. Baassiri’s desire to seek new frontiers and his ability to read the landscape of opportunity, be it in the agricultural, industrial, or technological revolutions, all without compromising strong family values.
