It is very difficult running a family business! I opted out of working alongside my parents in their business (they're in pewter, rocks and beading) and am running my own tree care business. It's nice not having to answer to anyone and make all my own business-related decisions myself. Plus, it's much more up my alley! Andrew - Coniferae Tree Care (

Great write up! I run my dads company he started in 1975. I am 36 and my son is 8. Not sure if he will come to work for us later in life, but its definitely a possibility! My dad is busy caring for my mother who has major health challenges, but he is overseeing my running the business daily. We well together as a team. Glad he sent me to college and off to do my own thing for 10 years, until gravity brought me back home to our family business. If you can make it work, its definitely the best thing to have a business supplying for family members who all have the company's best interest! Much success to you all.
