The five rules to working with family

Family businesses are prone to a long list of potential stumbling blocks. Taking care with a few key areas can help keep the business productive and the family happy.

Working with family members can be highly rewarding and completely frustrating at the same time (I’ve been there). I’ve witnessed and experienced the joys and heated disputes that frequently occur. In particular, I’ve seen the relationships of three generations tested over a series of different types of business: from the family motels run by my parents and my uncle, to the hair and beauty salons of my mother, grandmother and cousins. I’ve also held the roles of receptionist, housemaid, barista, waitress and kitchen-hand in a restaurant; all working for family.
