Sorry Bro, You're Out: How to Fire a Family Member Without Destroying the Family - or the Business

When we plan for passing the family business down to the next generation, we often talk about "seeing how things work out" and "training a family member to take over". But what if the family member in question is not doing a great job, and is just not working out well at all. Now you're in a tough place. How do you fire someone in your own family? Can it be done without causing World War 3?

I found an article at that has some solid advice for business owners who are the awkward position of having to fire someone that he'll see around the Thanksgiving table. Click here to learn five tips you'll need if you're in that situation.


  1. Mom & I tried being "nice" and it cost us over a million dollars, our home & properties & made me homeless... Better to make war if the family member is a sociopathic thief like my brother!!

    1. I know you've had a hell of a time, Trudi. Yours is truly a terrible experience and I agree there is no point being nice to some people. There are some who take niceness as weakness and just bully you all the more.
