Are you likely to inherit your parent's business?

If your parents have a business, would you more likely be the one who will inherit it from your parents after they retired, or pass away? Or you would like to search something new on your own, or do something that it is your real interest? Most parents would expect their children to inherit their hard - earning business, but it will be up to the children to decide what to go next.

We have a family business which my father started last 1970's. He always wants us to help him in running the business since we were still kids, however I don't have the skills of an entrepreneur. I am not good at sales talk and not really mindful in selling.
