@Freedom - your story reminds of what's happened to a close friend's family business. Their success has ruined their family because they didn't put much in writing and a few did all the work while the rest of the family expected equal pay because they're siblings.
Family businesses have unique pitfalls that can have tragic consequences. It's good to get things in writing early on and manage those expectations before they get out of hand and destroy a family.
