Oh my goodness, customers are not your friends. EVER EVER EVER. Customers are your customers. They will alternate between hugely grateful and hugely ungrateful, and eff you over for the tiniest of things. Do you want your daughter in the collections business? Working with cutthroat small restaurant owners? You want her to manage outsourcing — are you effing crazy? Let me ask you this, is your daughter incorporated so that your house and all your personal effects cannot be included in the assets to be taken in liability if something goes wrong?

You’re dealing with people’s livelihoods. It’s not like if she fails, somebody doesn’t get a paper that day. No, if something goes wrong they lose business. Get her a job where the stakes aren’t life and death. Get her a job where failing means she lost a single paycheck. She can graduate to jobs where steakhouse owners are threatening to visit her with cleavers.
