Having a partner can be great when you’re a business owner, but it’s easy to become complacent, or let hotter fires prevail over your efforts to maintain a healthy partnership.
So make time with your partner a priority habit. Plug in weekly partner meetings at a time most likely to stay sacred and at a place away from the office to avoid interruptions or delays. Talk about your big picture plans and the day-to-day. Resolve discrepancies before they become full-blown conflicts. Tell each other what support you need back at the office.
Whether your partnership is an asset or a liability begins with your commitment to having a great relationship. After all, partnership is a verb.
