A very small portion of the world’s population seeks adventure and dreams big, aspiring to climb Mt. Everest or sail the seven seas. There’s an even smaller group willing to take on a challenge that far exceeds the dangers of these. Working with your Spouse!
My wife Jen and I made the decision to work together when we started our business Bottle Breacher, and it’s one of the best choices we’ve ever made! (Along with appearing on ABC’s Shark Tank where we scored a deal with Mr. Wonderful and Mark Cuban)
Here are a few suggestions to help you get through the obstacles of running a business with your partner, while balancing every day issues like “Who’s picking up the kids from school today?” or “What’s for dinner?”
After hearing our story, we hope it has encouraged you to take the plunge into those shark-infested waters and find a rewarding opportunity for you and your spouse on the other side. Working together may seem like an unachievable goal, but with great communication, a clear vision and defining roles, you can achieve the American Dream together.
