Communication is key

Okay, so some of you may know that I am in the process of writing a book on running a business with your spouse. Let me tell you, every day can be a challenge. For the record, I have been running a business with my spouse for 7 years, 2 months, 21 days and 14 hours and counting and can tell you without hesitation, the success is based entirely on communication. Chaos ensues whenever it is not handled properly, facts we are still learning to this day. It is so easy to get caught up in the busy going ons of the day and forget. So what do you do?

I recommend a company meeting – even if you are a company of two. We used to do it, then stopped, then started and on and on and on. What I am noticing is when we neglect it, we encounter a shame spiral of not getting things done and other tasks slipping through the cracks. Don’t let this happen to you. Keep the communication open with your business partner. You will profit and prosper from it.
