In this episode of 2 Sides 2 the Story, Chris discusses the advice he would give to couples thinking about going into business together. This is a passion for Chris and his wife, couples in business together. First and foremost it is necessary to share a passion for the endeavor you're going into and be a balance with each other. One half is the creative and financial end, and the other has to be the doer and go-getter. Be very clear on the skills and talents of each person, who will do what and what the roles are inside of that. Strictly doing something for financial gain, can cause you to burn out; find something you enjoy doing and do that. Determine realistic targets and what the potential is for your business; if you're not aiming at something to reach it, you will never hit it. Seek counsel from people you respect on all levels; market trends, branding and creating an image, and figuring out the structure of your business. Always remember profit first; Income - Profit = Expenses, run this way from day one, and you will be profitable. Developing a successful Marketing strategy is most important; if you don't find a way to get people in the door your business will be doomed from the start.
