GUY’S RICH FATHER OFFERING HIM $10K/MTH TO WORK FOR HIM, ASKS IS IT “SHAMEFUL”

How do people perceive those who choose to work for their family businesses? Shameful?

My dad is offering me $10K a month to work for his distribution company and my best job offer is $4.5K at a bank. I’m a mathematics grad FCH.

I’ll be learning how to manage a company straightaway if I worked for my dad while if I got a job, I wouldn’t know what I will learn if I will learn anything at all. In addition, I will probably inherit the company in the future anyway. My dad is 68 and I am 25.

All my friends are getting jobs and they have the dignity of being able to tell people that they are out there trying to make it on their own without any help from their parents, and I will have none of that dignity, and I’ll probably be perceived as piggybacking on my family’s wealth.

I don’t know the right thing to do here. Please halp.

Netizens’ comments

  • No right or wrong answer. I think it’s great you’re considering learning from your dad to take over his business. Many don’t get this opportunity. I’d take it if I’m interested in running it in the future
  • it’s a blessing actually. now u still young, so is ur friends. later, they all admire u. Your direction is clearer than them. Key is you must enjoy. if not sure, tell ur dad. u wan to work outside for 2 yrs first. Just waste time only.
  • Decent job experience will give u bit confidence in managing ur family biz, especially with those “office politics” surrounding mgmt.
