This entrepreneur family has many successful businesses. But how do they make things work and thrive? Many times people say, "Don't work with family." But throughout most of human history, most businesses have been family run. Jeremy Pryor and his family have studied and researched the unique view of how families work in our modern western culture compared to how families have worked historically. Once the Pryor family started governing their family and businesses by building a culture that focused on a strong family team, they maximized their family and business potential. They have built and practiced a lifestyle that allows them to not only work together, but they've become an even stronger family by spending more time with each other while they work together.

Sometimes, we hope and pray for certain situations to come our way, and when we finally have them, we take them for granted when many others wish they had our opportunity.
