More power to you, Mike....my grandfather started a company, passed it down to his son, and my father expected myself and my brother to continue. I'm here along with my brother, but am in the process of calling it quits from the industry - too many reasons: family dynamics, employees' union, suppliers, our "customers" (general contractors), etc., etc.. Thank God that you and your brother are able to keep it going. I used to see other family business split apart, and I'd think "why couldn't they just stick it out and work things through?" Now, I realize that it isn't always so easy.
