  •  Being 'all things' means being family... (5+ / 0-)

    you have an odd dynamic going on, and your confusion makes sense.

    Basically, you're WAY closer to these women than any 'boss' should ever be. You have visibility into, and concern for - if not control over - aspects of their lives that aren't part of a worker-boss relationship.

    Now, I'm not saying your situation is wrong or can't work, just that when you deviate from the norm, it often gets harder to make sense out of things, much less make them work.

    And if you're paying them the equivalent of $80,000 per year ($20/hr x 2 x 2,000 hrs/yr), and they can't seem to make ends meet, you might be a little concerned about just what is in those 'oddly expensive compressed gas capsules' and 'oddly expensive incense'.

    So if y'all are going to be a 'family', cool. But if you're wanting to be a boss, then you might want to take steps to put a little distance between you and your workers.
