Many people come up to me or email me questions about life and business. I love to help them resolve their issues. Often I wish I could share the answer with those who have the same questions. So I am going to begin a segment of this blog called ASK YOUR COACH.
Bring your questions here and I will begin to post the answers. All posts will be anonymous.
You can post your questions below or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
I look forward to hearing from you.
Is it a good idea to bring a family member or friend to work in your business?
Great question! I have had many a family member work with me at my Auto Body shop years ago. It was fun for sure. I do wish I was better equipped at choosing the right person.
Here’s what I ran into.
I hired them for the wrong reasons.
- They were family
- They needed money
- I needed a warm body to help out.
What I didn’t do it have ‘the conversation’ that needed to occur.
- Were they qualified? Just because I trusted them, didn’t mean they were qualified
- What happened if it didn’t work out
- What are both of our expectations
- Deal breakers
If you are looking to have a friend or family member work with you, invest the time in a solid conversation to save the relationship and your peace of mind. Call in a professional if you need someone to help.
