MBA1965 Q&A Wednesday: How do I fire my brother?

Well this is awkward.

However, it’s not that uncommon. Hiring family members who just don’t work out is a thing that happens. In fact, it even happened to Omar! 

It’s Q&A Wednesday, and it also happened to one of our listeners. Six months into a new position, and one business founder’s brother just isn’t up to the task. How in the world do you let a close family member go without creating chaos at home?
