Starting a business with members of your family has advantages and, sadly, potential drawbacks that can end up making Christmas gatherings very uncomfortable affairs.

Brothers Matt, Chris and Tim Barge are in the process of expanding their successful Sydney restaurant PaperPlanes to Bali and New York.
