One of the least appreciated and most ignored areas by Christian Business Owners – especially family businesses – is governance.  Proper governance balances and defines the four roles in any business:  employee, shareholder, director and officer.  In most small businesses, these roles are filled by the same individual(s) and so it is often not apparent as to which role a person is acting within in any given situation.  Role clarity and staying in your swim lane are absolutely important if a business is going to be properly run.

The books in this area are good reads on corporate governance.  I highly recommend them to you.
