New research reveals that about two-thirds of Hispanic business owners (versus only 36 percent of general business owners) said they started their businesses to improve their lives and provide for their families, according to Business News Daily.

These business owners plan on keeping it in the family:  while 54 percent of the general business owners plans to pass their businesses on to their children, 70 percent of Hispanic business owners plan to have their children continue their firms but they have little information on how to help them with succession strategies.

A final report will contrast the results of this research with data obtained in other countries of the Americas.
