The Journey Starts Here | Compass Point Skip to main content

Compass Point


That’s truly how we look at our work with family businesses.

It’s a journey.

Every business owner has a different starting point and final destination.

Some bring us in early in their journey, while others hire us when a transition is on the horizon. Regardless of where an owner is in the business,  we meet them where they are. Our role is to advise them on charting their own unique course, then help them navigate all the points along the way to get there – on their terms.

That’s the purpose we wanted to convey in our new website.

Let’s take a closer look…


What’s Your Challenge?

Building and sustaining a business is hard. Raising a family in business is exponentially harder. You know this. You live it every day. We know the challenges are many.

Here’s what we hear most often from family business owners:

How do I get the business strategy out of my head?
What is the right path to grow my leaders and align the team?
How do plan my transition, even if it’s a year away?
Can I restore harmony to the family business and holiday gatherings?
Are there financial gaps I haven’t sufficiently addressed?
Can I design my next chapter before I close this one?

Tackling these challenges is the foundation behind our Six Pillars Framework. This multi-faceted approach helps family business owners meet those challenges and more. It’s also not a cookie-cutter solution nor do you do it alone. We are invested and there every step of the way as facilitators, guides, and confidants.

And unlike most other consultants, we address the elephant in the room – family dynamics. It’s hard work. Messy, emotional work, but when these challenges get resolved through governance, it’s some of the most satisfying work we do. Nothing beats restoring and preserving family relationships.



Blogs. Tools. Events.

A small shift in thinking can lead to big changes in the business.

Our team blogs are insightful, thought-provoking, and educational on topics impacting family businesses now.

Sharing relevant information with business owners is a priority for Compass Point. We are building a calendar of events hosted by top-notch partners through Eastern PA and the Cap Region. Our two main focuses right now are “How to Grow in Uncertain Times” and “Governance Workshop for the Family in a Family Business”. These complimentary events are specifically for family businesses with revenues of $5Million to $100Million. Advance registration is required.
