    Entrepreneurs running family firms have considerable discretion in determining the form, the value and the timing of their financial rewards. The financial rewards of entrepreneurship include both direct financial rewards (i.e. drawings, net profit, shareholder dividends and equity sales), and a range of indirect rewards, including goods and services owned by the firm but used for personal and household consumption. The extraction of financial rewards may be adjusted to suit prevailing business conditions and the entrepreneur’s personal requirements.
