Pros and Cons Of Doing Business With Family

 

A family business is something that can provide significant opportunity and also a good amount of frustration. Say you’re starting a clothing store like Zara, a Marketing Agency like Viva Traffic or a simple bakery. There are many benefits associated with starting and running a family business. However, at the same time, there can be some pretty significant disadvantages as well. In this article, we will be going over some of the main pros and cons of doing business with family. 

Doing Business With Family: 

Pros: 

1. Loyalty. 

When it comes to doing business with your family, the primary benefit is the loyalty that you will be able to achieve. The fact is, you are never likely to find a partner with such a vested interest in being loyal to you as a family member. Because family members can be closely trusted, you will never really have to worry about having significant issues with distrust with them. Also, because they will be able to provide you with the support that you need to keep going when times are tough, they can be excellent at helping you power through the difficult times that just about everyone goes through at some point in a business. 

2. Flexibility. 

Another benefit that you are going to be able to enjoy when you work with family members is the ability to be much more flexible. Family members are typically going to be much more flexible and lenient when it comes to various things that can impact your business such as work schedules, mistakes, or even judgement. Therefore, they will offer you a level of flexibility that you are not likely ever going to be able to get with other kinds of partners in business. 

Cons: 

1. Conflict. 

One of the biggest drawbacks of going into business with family members is the potential for conflicts to arise. Because family businesses also have personal relationships to navigate, it can be difficult being able to do business with family at times because personal relationships and business relationships can really get in the way of one another. You are not really going to have this same kind of problem when you are doing business with other people that do not know you on a personal level. Therefore, this kind of conflict can result in all kinds of problems within the business if not dealt with properly. 

2. Wrongful Promotions. 

Another problem that can result from doing business with family is dealing with some kind of inadequacy. Because family members will feel obligated to get some kind of promotion even if they do not necessarily deserve one, you are going to end up having to deal with some members possibly not earning their job description which can really put your business at a significant disadvantage. After all, you might be left with someone in a position that either he/she simply is not ready or prepared for. 

Overall, there are many pros and cons associated with running a family business. While it can provide good structure for a business, it can also be the downfall of one as well.

Connecting With Others Who Have the Same Bean Bags

We talked about a lot of the different products that we ship. Everything from African Mango to giant bean bags. We’ve had a lot of talk about our giant bean bags and how they can be shipped.

Shipping can be kind of tricky with these giant bean bags. It isn’t for us, the one shipping it, but for people who are interested in knowing how they’re going to get their bean bags. Sometimes people get their bean bags in 1 box and they are concerned because they think that part of the shipping is missing.

Bean Bags Come in 2 or More Boxes

Sometimes in transit, the boxes get separated and one will arrive earlier than the other. This is okay, though. As long as you can get both boxes you’ll be fine. Once you receive the second box and you will have everything you need.

Oftentimes are giant bean bags come into one, two, or even three boxes. The large ones are always going to come in at least two boxes. The reason for this is that the foam filling is vacuum-sealed and packed and we can’t send everything in one giant box. The giant bean bag comes in several boxes to accommodate the foam filling, and the microwave cover and liner.

The cover takes up a lot of space and obviously cannot be vacuumed sealed like the foam. If you have any further questions about how we ship these or what to do with this gigantic bean bag once it arrives at your home, you can visit our previous article.

Giant Bean Bag – Shipping

Ever wondered how the ship those giant bean bags? Well, a lot of times it doesn’t come in one box. It actually comes in two or more boxes. Why two boxes? Well it helps to understand what exactly comes in the boxes. In one box, there is the bean bags’ microsuede cover. The cover is the luxurious microsuede exterior that you see when you see the bean bags online. Also inside that box is the liner. This liner is made of regular cotton and isn’t really meant to look pretty. What it does is hold the giant bean bags’ foam together in case you need to take the cover off of to clean it.

In the second box, is the actual foam for the giant bean bags. When you get the shipment, you take the foam, put it in the liner, and put the liner in the microsuede cover. Let it fill with air for about a day and you’re ready to go!

Sizing Up Room for the Bean Bag

These bean bag beds measure 8 feet long by 8 feet wide and site about 2 feet high. When you consider the size of most rooms, it’s pretty certain that these are designed for large rooms and home. It probably wouldn’t fit in most apartments. So if you’re going to buy one of these makes sure you measure the room. Another thing to keep in mind is that you want to have enough space to walk. If your room is 7 feet wide, and you put this huge bing bag in there you will only have about 3 inches on each side of it to walk or stand (6 inches left by the bean bag divided by 2 because there are 2 sides).

Shipping Giant Bean Bags

One is for the microsuede cover and the liner. The other boxes are for the foam filling. They are vacuum sealed and packed into their respective boxes for shipping.

Once it arrives at your house, you open up the box. Be careful not to cut anything inside. Remember, it’s vacuum-sealed so it will be very snugly in its’ plastic wrapping. You remove then cover and liner and unfold it. Then you open up the box with the foam filling for your giant bean bag bed and you dump the foam into the liner. At first, it’ll seem like there isn’t enough foam. But, as air gets to the foam filling it will expand again to its normal, fluffy size and fill up that entire lining. You can expedite this process by breaking it up with your hands through the liner. Before the huge bean bag bed has fully expanded, you’ll want to sling that liner filled with the foam into the microsuede cover while it’s still easy to do. If you wait too long, it will be hard to get it in there.

After about 24 hours your giant  bean bag will have fully expanded to its giant sized capabilities and will be ready for you to relax on it.
