My mom helps me do that kind of thing. The customer doesn't have to know it's your mom. I charge $45/ man/woman hour.

I think it's a great idea. You know she will do a good job, you can trust her, and she will always have your best interest(or the interest of your business) in mind. I,m sure she would be far better than any employee you would hire.

I agree, when your starting out, I think relying on family for help is great!

My sister is starting work with me in two weeks. Mind you I have a few other people going as well and she will be doing maintenance and I mainly work on the installations. So I will rarely work alongside her and won't be her direct supervisor.

But nonetheless, I agree with you about keeping your best interest in mind and being able to trust her.
