I have been in business ever since I graduated university. I was 24 at the time. Luckily, my husband Gal worked a job and supported my business adventures. When I asked him about having his own business back then, he said he liked the way things were. Over 24 years ago, he did not think having his own business was an option. Not to mention working from home and/or working with me.
About 10 years ago, we started working together, from home. We soon discovered that we are very different people who enjoy doing very different things. Each of us slowly drifted towards the things that meant more to us. I veered towards life coaching and education and he went towards systems and consulting in one way or another.
The last 10 years have been challenging and rewarding in many ways. This has gotten us asking questions about working together, especially about working together from home. Many of my clients also ask me about this.
I think working with your husband or wife in the same business or workplace is very different from working with them at home.
I know people who work with their partners and it is very successful for them. Others work together and it is the end of their relationship. Similarly, working with your husband or wife from home turns out differently for different people. Some couples work together from home and enjoy it, while others see it as a disaster.
What do you think about working from home with your life partner?
Use the comment box below to share your reasons.
Hopefully, I will be able to share many more thoughts about couples working together from home with my clients.
Until we gather enough data, focus on the advantages of working as a couple.
Happy working together,
