More and more young couples prove that business success mix with love.
There are two big myths about business as a couple. The first is that business as a couple doesn't work and the second is that couples end up getting bored of working together. 2020 and 2021 have proven exactly the opposite.
The last few years have shown that not only Hollywood stars have successful couples. Today, young couples and partners starting businesses together can achieve a state of well-being with a winning two-player approach.
Couples and Partners Seizing Opportunities
Just like when a couple meets, one takes the opportunity to make the first move, so it is with business. The determination needed to jump into a business challenge is the same to seduce a lover for the first time.
Try to remember together who took the first step when the magic began. You're sure to smile. If you're still together, it's because that initial spark was so strong that it sustains your bond to this day.
Can you imagine that determination doubled? Now imagine it turned into a common goal.
The core of the winning model: the common goal.
It does not matter if about concrete goals the partners have differences. One may want to save to travel and the other to buy a car. Couples are able, for a not scientific reason, to agree. They find the connection in the most opposite things. Desires end up complementing each other. Surely with effort, it will happen that they will be able to buy a car to travel with it and thus fulfill a common goal.
If each one rows in a different direction, both will get there, but more slowly.
Unlike a conventional job, a business partnership is an opportunity for independent operation in which both partners can be their bosses.
A partner couple can achieve so much trust in each other that they can take on projects they would never have undertaken alone. Where one partner is afraid, the other feels comfortable and opens up the possibility of making demands on each other.
Who better than your partner to lovingly ask you to perform a task? A gentle reminder or a to-do list will always be better if it comes from someone you trust.
Trusting each other
You have already heard the phrase: "the basis of every relationship is trust." We share it because it is also a foundation of the winning method for couples and partners.
Trust each other means resting on each other. Of course, it is not the same as letting the other take care of everything. It is an act of loving delegation that produces less stress than in the context of strangers.
Partnering lightens the mental load in business. Tasks divided between partners who trust each other relieve the pressure of daily work.
Mutual trust creates a way of working where you don't even have to tell each other what to do anymore. Each knows what to do and trusts the other will do the best.
Joint administration. Separate accounts.
Trust then allows reducing the mental burden. However, for accounts, exact
mathematics is ideal. Regularly discuss finances. Successful business partners do not make any final business decisions without mutual agreement.
Funds and profits will undoubtedly be in joint accounts that you both manage. But, it is also convenient for each personal account. Financial independence is a beautiful asset of young couples today.
When each partner has a different job, it is often difficult to coordinate you are on vacation in the same season. Planning together for periods of rest allows young couples to reserve all the fun to share.
However, it is also vital that everyone has a distraction from their work independent of the couple. Visiting family, seeing old friends, or studying something new are activities
where you could take healthy breaks separately.
Have a good time
Burnout occurs when there is no fun. Together, you design creative ways to have fun and achieve work/life balance.
When a couple achieves a winning method, they can:
• Schedule regular date nights.
• Thank each other's efforts in detail.
• Invent loving codes of apology.
• Make each other's work environment more pleasant by remodeling or decorating.
• Go out as a couple, exercise the body and distract the mind.
Couple and partners: a model under construction
Nothing is set in stone about love and business. All myths can crumble. So, daring a business partnership as a couple will be a process in permanent construction. You will always be able to change the rules of your own game with time and experience.
