Business BFFs: How to Handle the Good, the Bad…the Ugly

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:

  1. What’s your work style?
  2. What’s your role? Tech? Head of Creative?
  3. What are your values?
  4. 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!
