    When you are new to business the best thing you can do is read as much as you can about business.

    Birthright: Murder, Greed, and Power in the U-Haul Family Dynasty (Hardcover)
    by Ronald J. Watkins

    Can you imagine starting a business from scratch with the hopes of one day passing it on to your children only to have one of your children take control of your business and throw you out on the street? If you can't imagine this happening, you have to read this book on the family who started the U-Haul truck and trailer rental company.

    This is the story of the family of L. S. Schoen, the one-time migrant worker who, having founded the $4-billion U-Haul trailer and truck rental empire, saw his dynastic dreams shattered by feuding among the 13 offspring of his four marriages, culminating in the sensational, unsolved 1990 murder of a daughter-in-law in Telluride, Colorado.

    The book is just unreal. It will make you think twice about your estate planning and how you will involve your children in the company you have founded.
