Our friend Rob runs his own family-owned business, and it’s been thriving for a couple of decades now. His brother Reed had been laid off, so Rob hired him to work at his company, putting him in charge of marketing. Reed tried, but somehow he just wasn’t giving the hours, commitment, time, or other responsibilities that went with his position. Rob didn’t know what to do with him! Sure, Reed did the job Rob had hired him for, but not as effectively as he could have. Still, Reed was a great guy with good intentions, so Rob let his emotional attachment convince him to keep Reed where he was. It even occurred to Rob that Reed might think he was entitled to the job simply because he was family! But Rob knew he shouldn’t have gotten into that situation to begin with, and he was becoming increasingly frustrated.
