Hi! You can get into a top school with a 710, but if you think you have the time to take it again, then it never hurts to try to boost your score. The schools will only look at your top score. Your background - coming from a family business - may also help your candidacy. In today's tough economic climate, many schools like candidates who have jobs to go back to. Still, it will be important for you to clearly explain in your applications why you need an MBA, why you need the degree now and why these particular schools are right for you.
Best of luck,
