I haven't and don't plan on it.
It depends on what you want to lose the most
a good friend
or a employee
if it don't work out. My advice is not to hire friends are family as permanent employees
I have a friend that has been asking me to go into partnership with him. He is self-employed, but not in this industry. He is a very hard worker. I am 33 years old and have been friends with him for 25 of those years. Today I told him no, that I would not go into business with him because 25 years from now I would still like to be friends.
You will likely go though many many workers if you stay in the business long, don't ruin a friendship in the process.
do not employ or work for friends
that all depends, do they drink the same number of beers with you at the bar watching monday night football? if yes then probly shouldn't hire friends. i know i need to be on the road at 7:30 not 8:15 but your drinking buddy will not see it that way. i hired one of my friends for one sole purpose.. i have a few complexes that get trimmed bi weekly. he checks in with me in the morning i give him a check sheet gas edgers blowers and such and he leaves i check his work when i'm there to cut. this works good for both of us he's a college student and a bar tender at night. he know his schedule and works them together. has anyone else done this?
