THINKING BUSINESS
a blog by Chris Barrow

Giving up the day job - to join the family business



Here's a new trend I'm spotting.


Owner's spouses/partners deciding that they don't want to go back to their pre-Covid careers in corporate UK and joining the practice as business development managers.


It's a great idea, provided you can establish strong boundaries from the beginning around "work-related conversation".


Without those boundaries - talking about other people's performance and behaviour when you should be talking about sleep, nutrition, exercise, fun and family - that's when it can go wrong.


With those boundaries - nothing beats a committed couple who both have skin in the game.


I love working with them.


p.s. I'm seeing some children join their parent's business as well.
