Do Those Who Work Together Stay Together?

Yesterday, I became a team player.  The economy is tanking and we all have to make serious adjustments to survive, not the least of us are the entrepreneurs like my husband and me.  I run a PR company, he owns a flooring business.

For months we have discussed my moving into his building where I would get much needed office space and he would have extra support for phones, bookkeeping, etc.  So we decided to do it and now I’ve been there 2 days.

I have to say, it’s been great so far and I feel like I am working even harder than before…not that I slacked at home because I did not.

The only challenge I am facing now is shutting off work and just being home.  Example, I am on the computer now blogging at 8:00 at night and I could just be chilling with these cute dogs that missed me all day.  Well, I will chill w/ the puppies when this blog is done.

So after 2 days, I feel confident that my business will actually thrive at the new office and I am looking forward to taking my business to new levels while supporting my husband’s business and helping him find some way to relax a little more.  Win Win I say!

  1. Hi Angela. Congrats on moving into your new office. And your challenge is one that all entrepreneurs face, especially in a major shift like relocating. It’s great that you’re aware of what’s happening. In my experience, the workload may increase temporarily but it levels off as I adjust to the change.

    Best wishes,

  2. I have worked with my husband for almost 3 years and we are both still alive…sometimes we have to go out to the warehouse to “discuss”
    mostly we try to keep home and work separate as possible. We can’t do the “hi, honey, how was your day?” Good Luck!

    • Thanks Connie, I appreciate your comment. So far so good, we seem to be settling in just fine. The most surprising thing I have found is my working harder now…seems the ‘office’ atmosphere is keeping me tied to my desk with fewer distractions. We do bring our 2 dogs with us each day and that has been a lot of fun.
