My sister wanted her boyfriend to hire DH to do some part-time consulting for his business (basically he needed two of his machines to talk to each other, if I understand correctly). Ultimately DH didn’t because the rate offered was low and would have just been taking out of unemployment AND DH wanted to spend his time upgrading his machine learning and [something directly related to his specific skillset that is easier to do remotely than are his other specializations] skills before tapping his job application networks.
But we thought maybe it wouldn’t be such a great idea anyway and could lead to hurt feelings.
What do you think? Should family members hire each other for projects? Have you seen it go well or poorly? Do you mix business and family?
