(Page 1 of 4 )
Have you ever wallpapered with your spouse? How about worked together on a big project?Some may have rosy memories, but for most of us, working with our spouses sometimes can be a hair-raising experience. This article talks about 9 critical success factors that entrepreneurial spouses can work together to make their business a smashing success.
If things aren't going as smoothly as you'd like, here are 9 success tips that you can implement immediately and boost your results:
1.Treat All Distractions Equally
•If you or your spouse want to quit because it's sunny and head to the beach, think twice! A true small business entrepreneur realizes that all distractions are created equal (good ones or bad ones)--they are distractions from your financial success! Remember - spouses can be mighty convincing. Weigh your actions before mowing the grass or taking the day off and decide which activities are ways to make money from home.
2. Lose Your Ego
•For all this advice to work, you need to loose your ego
•In order to get the best product possible (e.g., a proposal or report, etc.), you have to be willing to accept advice and suggestions from your partner at home in the same spirit that you would from a co-worker in an office. There is no room for egos!
•You cannot allow your personal relationship to affect the productivity of the business. You must put the business ahead of your ego at all cost.
•Accept the fact that your partner is more talented than you in some areas and milk it for all it's worth.
