There are four core things that must be in place if you want to build a successful business with your spouse.

How do you do it, how do you find balance, is there a line between work and home?

Look over these four points then let us know where you stand in the comment section.

Couples Code of Conduct (COC)

The Couple’s COC outlines the proper practices between you and your spouse both in your marriage and in your business. They define the lines that you will not cross, especially in the presence of others. They set a baseline that ensures respect and admiration are upheld in your private and public lives.

Respect your strengths and weaknesses

You both need to be able to determine and respect what you are each strong at. Just as important as finding your strengths is determining your weaknesses and then handing off those duties to someone who is better suited for the job.

Vision

For your business to be great you have to have a plan. Set goals for the next 6 months, 1 year, 5 years and 10 years then go back and revisit those goals and how you are doing on achieving them on a regular basis.

Trust

Like respect, if you don’t have trust in your marriage it’s nearly impossible to have it in your business. Trust comes into place with money, management, duties and more.
