Family members are attracted to the family business for a number of reasons. Most of my clients are thrilled to have their offspring involved in their businesses and many have high aspirations for their children. The truth is, family members can represent a profound asset especially if they enter the business with humility, adequate training, and meaningful prior work experience. These individuals tend to be a delight to have around and are relatively easy to manage. Conversely, entitlement, arrogance and a less-than-stellar work ethic can be problematic. So what happens when a family member does not carry his or her weight?
