14. Soulmates in Isolation
This episode is our first since coronavirus turned the world into a spin. At the time of recording this episode we’re currently in Stage 3 lockdown in Victoria, Australia. Our business Organic Angels is an online home delivery for organic fruit and veggies and deemed an ‘essential service’ so we have been able to operate still during this time and we share in this episode how the last 6 weeks has been. It has been a vulnerable time and our conversation goes into the changes that we’ve had to make rapidly in the business, how our own fears and anxiety has shown up, what our learnings so far from all of this has been and how now more than ever, having a vision for your life is so important, which we discovered. Whether you’re still going, slowed down or closed the doors on your business you will find some gems in this. Thank you for listening!

09: Couple Lead Business Framework vs Conventional Business Model
For couples starting out in business you have to learn to relate and work together as business partners and because it is a whole new territory, it’s common to adopt the conventional model of running a business because there is no framework that considers the other factors of a couple lead business, such as you live, sleep, eat and co-parent together. If you’re feeling like a square peg trying to fit in a round hole of a model that isn’t working for you both, or you’re frustrated because some things look easier for other businesses, then you might like to consider these key differences and once you have a greater awareness and acceptance that working together as a couple will inevitably be different and adapt, things flow much better and that results in a happier relationship and thriving business. In this episode we compare key differences of running a business together as a couple and how that compares to the conventional business model. Topics we delve into are decision making, boundaries, communication, time management and leadership.
