(PRWEB) January 18, 2005 -- Atlanta based Family Business Institute and their Internet organization Family Business Experts have been recognized by the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants. AICPA publishes the highly regarded Journal of Accountancy and the Family Business Expert web site was recommended as a "Smart Stop on the Web".

Don Schwerzler, founder of the Family Business Institute, noted “the Journal of Accountancy features the web site and highlighted our success in developing and implementing Exit Strategies and our work in Succession Management for family-owned businesses. The Journal of Accountancy also mentioned the section of the web site where the archives of our complimentary e-zine Understanding Family Business can be found. "Ask the Expert" is our web site feature that allows visitors to the web site to direct questions about family business to our team of experts. We were very pleased to be selected by the Journal of Accountancy as a “Smart Stop On The Web.”

The Internet organization Family Business Experts (
is the highest ranked family business resource web site on the Internet. It was designed to be an on-line learning resource for families in business together. It is a content-rich site and attracts visitors not only from the US but from all over the world. “We have visitors to our web site from over a 100 countries every month – this indicates the high level of world-wide interest in family business issues” says Schwerzler.

Schwerzler went on to suggest that family-owned businesses could find Success Strategies on their web site for almost every concern that confronts a family in business together. One of the problems that many family businesses have is that they are not addressing the core issues – they are only reacting to the symptoms of the problems. They keep trying to apply the same process to solving a problem and keep expecting to get different results. Using our web site as a resource can help break that pattern – more options can be considered.

An internationally acclaimed family business expert, Schwerzler has been working with families in business together since 1967. The Atlanta-based Family Business Institute was organized in the early 80’s and is considered to be a pioneer in the field of family business consulting. Many of the multi-disciplinary strategies used by successful family business are based on the work of Family Business Institute.
