09: Couple Lead Business Framework vs Conventional Business Model
For couples starting out in business you have to learn to relate and work together as business partners and because it is a whole new territory, it’s common to adopt the conventional model of running a business because there is no framework that considers the other factors of a couple lead business, such as you live, sleep, eat and co-parent together.
If you’re feeling like a square peg trying to fit in a round hole of a model that isn’t working for you both, or you’re frustrated because some things look easier for other businesses, then you might like to consider these key differences and once you have a greater awareness and acceptance that working together as a couple will inevitably be different and adapt, things flow much better and that results in a happier relationship and thriving business.
In this episode we compare key differences of running a business together as a couple and how that compares to the conventional business model. Topics we delve into are decision making, boundaries, communication, time management and leadership.
