It’s International Friendship Day! Give your friends a hug — they make life SO much better!
But how about in business? Is it a good idea to partner with a BFF — or spouse?
The jury is out on that one. Some people make it work.
Others end up hating each other.
My husband Murray and I’ve been working together for over 7 years and I can’t imagine doing this without him!
Our secret? We set ground rules and clear roles, early on with these core questions:
- What’s your work style?
- What’s your role? Tech? Head of Creative?
- What are your values?
- What are your business goals?
Then we had an honest discussion about our answers and walked away with a clear picture on how to work together.
We’ve continued to refine our ground rules so things just keep getting better with time!
