I know, I know, it’s different in your case and your relative is different and it will be fine and you don’t have any choice and it’s just for a while and on and on and on…

I’ve been there myself many, many times and then sworn to all that is holy that I would never, never, never do it again… Only to talk myself into why, THIS TIME, it is appropriate to hire family again.

Only to watch in horror as the predictable becomes the inevitable. YET AGAIN.

A good rule of thumb is, “Don’t hire anyone you cannot fire”.

I don’t expect you to take my word for it – I didn’t listen when others told me but hopefully this gentle reminder will help you shorten the amount and number of times you suffer!
