(i.e. company-wide “Remote August”).

My 2 siblings and I are going to inherit our father’s house near the beach. All three of us agree to not sell it. Ideally, I’d like to keep it as a vacation house that we all share with each of us having our own primary houses elsewhere, but one of my siblings, my brother, wants to live long term in the inherited house and make it his primary home. As co-owners, is there anything my sister & I should think about if we agree to let our brother make it his primary home? (It’s worth ~$5mil)

Hey all - how do you guys sell or lead things you aren’t genuine believing in? It’s almost like a fake it till you make it? I find it difficult to be behind a product or technology I don’t understand enough of or believe and I previously used to work in sales. Also any books/techniques which help. I am often too genuine or objective.
