There’s a traditional piece of advice: don’t do business with friends and family.
Why is that? Might that not be an indication that there’s something wrong with the way we do business or build relationships? Could it be because our approach to business is too cut-throat and ugly? Should we not aim to improve our business practises or ethics to the point that this is no longer a problem? Or alternatively, might the problem be that our relationships with friends or family aren’t honest or direct enough, or too fragile, a house of cards that collapses under too much pressure?
People of the Jewish culture supposedly don’t have this problem. (Stereotypes… hmmm.) What do they do differently?
