My dad owns his own business, but no, I've never worked for him.  Nor would I.  We would clash just too much.

Nope.  No family business here.

Has he ever wished that you would work for him? Did he ever wish he could pass it onto you?

My parents owned their own construction business when I was in HS. I did some work for them but didn't get a actual paycheck, just gas money. The business folded before I graduated though and he started a paint touch up. I did a couple of trips with him but nothing to steady. My uncle wants to retire so he's talking about buying a company that we can run and he can profit off of but we'll see if that ever happens

He's never said anything, so I don't think so.  I have 3 brothers and not one of them has ever worked with/for him either.  I think he just prefers to work alone.

I worked for my mom. She had a licensed in-home daycare for 30 years. I never had a problem, in fact it was the best job ever :)

We have never had a family business but I have some friends that do and they work well together. I know that often isn't the case though.

I worked for my mom at her Amish furniture store... One of the salesman was stilling money and giving away furniture and the business went under... But my dad still has nitrogen company but I would be the only family member that does not work there...
