What is your career goal post MBA? And long-term career goal?
You will have to figure out what you are really interested in doing and how to best utilize your skills.
I do advice family businesses and provide leadership coaching to potential successors. There will be a few success factors for you to consider if you do decide to join the family business such as identifying a non-family mentor for you at the firm.
I do pre-planning career coaching for people who are couple years away from applying to business school. Happy to discuss further if you are interested. Just email me your info - firstname.lastname@example.org

Hi Marvel Admissions,
I am a first-year analyst at a middle market investment bank (Jefferies, Houlihan Lokey, Harris Williams) in a specialized industry coverage group. Won't be applying for a couple more years obviously. One of my colleagues just was accepted to Tuck R1.
GMAT: 760 (V: 42, Q: 50). SAT: 2280 (V: 720, M: 780, W: 780)
Georgetown University, 3.4/4.0 in Finance & International Business double-major. Tough adjustment to college in freshman and early sophomore years, strong upward trend in junior and senior years (~3.75)
Actively involved in firm recruiting at Georgetown, firm volunteer events (serving homeless in city). In college was music director for 2.5 years (the leader) of a community service-focused acappella group that worked with several notable non-profit organizations and held shows and developed 2 albums with proceeds to charity
Targeting HBS, Wharton, Columbia, MIT Sloan
A big career question: I am considering jumping ship and working for my family business, a ~$100 million in revenue professional foodservice distribution company in a leadership capacity. Do you think this would make me a stronger applicant? (I can provide more detail if you'd like). Or should I stay in IB?
