The Power of Two2 eBook
Couples who run a business together have unique challenges. Juggling roles, sharing power, managing risk and talking about money, just to name a few. These challenges demand greater coordination and communication than for couples who work separately. Very simply, when couples share both a business and personal relationship, it’s a tricky balancing act.
The Power of Two2 is designed to help business couples manage the challenges they face in starting or growing a business together. Margaret and Ron Wilson share what they’ve learned about balancing acts, both as advisors to Business Couples and as married business partners themselves.
