6. Respect Each Other's Workspace
•There's nothing more frustrating than being in the middle of a prospecting call and having a spouse barge in and write notes to you or try to get an answer to something while your talking.
•Bring down the stress levels a notch by respecting each other's workspace and activities within that space.
7. Use Each Other's Talents
•What skill sets does each person have that best serves the business (e.g., technical, computers, Internet, human relations, phone calls, record keeping, etc.)
•Once areas of expertise are established, respect each others' areas and let the person assigned be in charge of that area
8. See Things For What They Are
•Recognize that you and your spouse have a great chance to spend more time with your family and have a successful home-based business at the same time
•Use both sets of talents to achieve the level of financial success you are looking for rather than driving yourselves and the business to the ground by petty arguing and disagreements.
•Keep in mind that if you were working in an office downtown, you couldn't take your spouse with you. But, by working at home, you are fortunate to have access to his or her abilities and talents whenever you need them and for the benefit of your own business. Make the most of it!
