Joining the family business
Having a family business to go into can be a blessing, but there may also be some interesting challenges. To begin with, you need to figure out the right time to join. Should you jump in right out of school or work elsewhere first to get outside experience? When you do come on board, how can you earn the respect of family members (who remember the silly things you did as a child) and non-family co-workers (who may think you got your position because of your name). Some say it’s like walking on eggshells.
