Hubler For Business Families


The Berber family has a small business where business issues and differences were eroding family relationships. Both Jim and Nancy Berber were in a second marriage and had a situation of "my" children and "your" children who were both working in the business. As a family, in a magical sort of way, they were able to create a common vision that for them represented life's sacred process. The father's individual vision was also interesting insofar as that he saw himself as a sage and was at a point in his life where the wanted to provide this as a benefit to his family and others for years to come.
Berber Common Family Vision

As stewards of life's sacred process, we use each of our resources in our family company as a creative outlet for our gifts and skills. With passion we pursue our work as an adventure balanced with thrift, honesty, kindness, and fairness. We celebrate our commitment to serve each other, our customers, and our community.
Prayer for Loving Kindness
May our family be filled with loving kindness
May we be well
May our family be peaceful and at ease
May our family be happy


My legacy of versatility, combined with thrift, industry, and some innovative seasoning, will serve my family, others, and me for years to come.


May (step-son) continue to grow with the business and focus on the dream with a sense of sincerity and humility.

May (son #1) continue to act in a forthright and honest manner in all of his relationships as he keeps sight of the big picture and acts in whole sentences and paragraphs.

May (son #2) experience himself as the suspension that smoothes the ride and keeps the family business from jumbling itself.

May (wife) experience strength in a shared vision as she serves with gladness of heart for the benefit of the family and the community.
