"In building a business, the most significant line that one crosses is that of becoming an employer. Hiring one’s first employee has much longer reaching and more complex implications than can possibly be anticipated. Tension is inherent in the employer/employee relationship. Opposing priorities make some degree of conflict inevitable. With an eye to the bottom line, employers juggle the often nearly impossible task of honoring and adequately compensating their employees with keeping the business financially solvent, and realizing a return on their investments. Meanwhile, employees are given the equally challenging task of servicing both their own needs and those of their employers. It’s a delicate dance around a fire of failure. Both financial and emotional ruin may result if either party pulls the other into the flames." - SuzAnne Miller
