Ultimately, this will bring family closer together, help them to understand business factor, teach your children responsibility, build their self confidence. And who knows, you might be on verge of your own Family Business Empire!
Here's a few nifty tips to get whole family involved in your business during summer vacation or any school break. And, of course, you can adapt them to your own situation. Find out what works for you!
-Delegate easy task to younger children. Let little fingers sort pencils, pens, office supplies into right compartments. Arrange file boxes or stack them neatly. Sort sheets of paper by color or weight into neat little groups. You could easily turn this into a game and make it fun. Reward them with a healthy snack or favorite toy.
-Let middle children spell check your letters, proof-read papers for you. Or file and sort papers, run copy machines, send faxes. You might arrange to pay them a small salary or purchase something they've asked for.
