Mr. Leading-Edge Family Business
I worked for 5 years in my family business (one of the leading social research firms in my country) with little revenue (9mil) due to the nature of the industry but the margin is high. I mainly do research for the public sector and what we research helps shape government policy. I am currently managing 7 people and innovating the Covid policy.
