A Focus on Family Business


Last night, members of the team at Goodhart Sons had the privilege of attending The High Center Business Forum featuring Daymond John, renowned entrepreneur and star of Shark Tank. He shared his journey as an entrepreneur, emphasizing the grit required and the role of people and passion in driving businesses forward.

The history of The High Center for Family Business traces back to 1995 when a group of leaders recognized the need to bolster entrepreneurial families. With family businesses anchoring the economy, empowering these entities has immeasurable impact within their communities. Named after its founder, S. Dale High, the center, in collaboration with Elizabethtown College, is committed to offering premier resources for businesses in south central Pennsylvania and beyond. The center has strengthened family enterprises through succession planning, leadership development, and legacy cultivation. The efforts of The High Center ensure that local businesses thrive in the face of ever-evolving challenges.

As a fourth-generation family-owned business, Goodhart Sons knows that the strength of family businesses lies not just in their longevity but in their ability to adapt, innovate, and foster a community of support. With each successive generation, these businesses embody the spirit of resilience and determination.
