I would leave it strictly as a performance issue, and try to keep it separate from your life outside of work. If she doesn’t still want to be friends with you after the fact, then that’s on her

the best advice i can give is “be professional about it. It’s going to suck-it really is, but it’s kind of like with a break-up. It’s what’s best for the long-run, but there will always be excuses not to do it. If she took you more seriously as a professional, maybe these problems wouldn’t happen.

You could give her a performance appraisal. Some constructive criticism might put her in gear to perform better knowing it is at risk. If she still slacks then you could tell her that your business requires 110% effort from everyone and you are only as strong as your weakest link.

Do you have a probation period? For example, for 90 days you have to meet requirements or you are let go.

I would hope that you having been giving her ongoing feedback. If you haven’t I would definitely meet with her now for a performance appraisal and to set some expectations.

It really isn’t fair to her to let her go, if you haven’t already done that.

If her behavior is so bad that you think you are beyond that point, then meet with her, keep the focus on her failure to meet expectations and let her go.
