The Truth About Working With Family | An Unstoppable Spotlight | Kay & Shi

By Amira Alvarez

Have you ever wondered what it’s like to run a business with your family? Often you’ll hear business advice that advises against working with family and friends. But today’s guests have been managing to make it happen for almost 20 YEARS!!

Kay and Shi are two successful entrepreneurs from Reno, owners of the Squeeze In Restaurant Group, and also happen to be sisters. When they were 10 and 17, their parents quit their careers and “bet it all” to buy a tiny breakfast restaurant in a California ski town. These sisters instantly gained a front-row seat to the drama of American entrepreneurship, and I’m so excited to pull back the curtains on their fascinating journey in this episode, where they’re dishing – no pun intended ;-) – about the pros and cons of running a business with your family!
