Balancing Career and Family/Family business or Job?


What should l choose? l have an option of doing a pharma Stockist business or join an admin job. l am 37 Yrs old man . My sister's husband will invest the money in business. He has also agreed to give me a job on my begging to my sister. Is it wise to depend on him for livelihood or l should try on my own? Problem with the job is that I stay in Kolkata & the job offered is in Mumbai. I have to leave my home and stay in rent or maybe as a paying guest . Further I will be totally alone dependent mostly on my sister. Also my sister often mocks me & gets irritated by me . After all these should l depend on them for either business or job? If yes, then which one should I go for-job or business?

Thank You
With best Regards
