Sisters in business

Ever thought about going into business with your sibling? We speak to 20 sister teams who've taken the plunge, from travel specialists to brand consultants and wedding planners. Some of these sisters launched their companies on a whim and others spent years fulfilling a childhood dream - but all agree that working together has been the best thing they've ever done, despite boardroom bickering and spending nearly 24/7 in one another's company.

See what they have to say about the importance of trust, complimentary skills and being able to read each other's minds in our sisters in business gallery, below. Are you inspired to start a business with your sister? Let us know in the comments section or on Twitter.
