It takes a one for all, and all for one attitude to help make a family business run efficiently. Often, family members can perform any number of tasks for the company. This is one of the advantages of a family business; everyone has a vested interest in its success. This means that you may have to vacuum the carpet of the offices, even if you have an accounting degree. Or your wife may spend time driving the company van even though she's a highly skilled chef by trade. What matters is getting things done in any way possible.
