All in the Family?

All-In-The-Family-tvSomeone once advised me that you really shouldn’t do business with friends (and family).  That in the event something goes awry, it could be the end of a  beautiful friendship.  Nevermind the impact and entanglements on your other friends and family.  One friend likened his break up with his professional partner/friend as a bitter divorce with a nasty alimony that seemingly never ended.  *wince*

That all makes sense, but when you’re starting out– the easiest PR (and client base) is your own network of friends and family. In the last year, I took on a few projects for friends and family, which so far has been a good thing.  Just wondering if you’ve taken on work with friends and family?  Or have you collaborated with friends or family?  Will you take on more work within your own social/familial network?  Any thoughts?
