The Business [How to Make It Fit Into Your Family] EP 07

You might be thinking, why is business a part of this podcast, right? More than most people think, business should actually be tied into the relationship you and your spouse have. This is what Mick and Claire believe in. Why, you ask? Because no matter what, you two are “in” the business together.

Any business you’re in, you’re in it together — directly, or indirectly, any decisions you make, affect your relationship. Tune in as Mick and Claire tell us their fair share on how they do business together, what choices and decisions affected their relationship, and how they manage a good working relationship with each other.

“It is in your best interest to embrace the fact that the business is yet another aspect of the relationship.”

-Claire Olinik
