  • Only if it was someone I'd hire even if they weren't related.

  • Yes, but I would expect them to do the same job as any other employee of mine.

  • Yes with the understanding that we all work equally.

  • No I would not. I have tried it lol. They dont work as hard as people you dont know. They call in sick more. And it causes alot more problems. It is the same as loaning money.

  • Me personally

    No.. I am a firm believer in my business and personal lives being seperate.

  • Nope. Doesn't mix well. I've found too many family members since they are related to take advantage.

  • it depends on alot of things, how well you can work with the person, how well they know the business and if you think it will be beneficial to do so. I wouldn't if i thought at all in any way it could hinder the relationship i have had experiences like this before.
