It never fails… One of the pleasantry questions you unavoidably get asked when meeting someone new is, “so what do you do”? More so, when my wife and I are together, and they find out… you’re “working with your spouse?!”, the question always turns to “how do you manage to work together”?
What’s in-store for you:
In this episode we’ll dive into what it’s like to work with your spouse, and provide a couple of tips we’ve learned along the way (over 20 years of working together) that have helped ensure a successful relationship both personally and professionally.
I’ll be joined in this episode by my wife Lorie Gill, just to make sure we give both sides of the story here ;).
I hope you enjoy the episode (as much as we enjoyed making it). Leave us a comment below if you work with or have thought of working with your significant other – how do you make things work. I would love to hear your story.
Highlights & Takeaways:
- 3 tips to working successfully with your significant other
- Dual perspective (him and her)
The Examination Room
In the Examination Room, we’ll be discussing a quote from Albert Einstein —which states:
“I have no special talents, I am only passionately curious”
I’ve had some interesting feedback on this quote over on our FaceBook page, that I really hadn’t considered. That being said, this quote has a disturbing truth to it for me. I discuss in the podcast, how this “belief” can be limiting as we sometimes have blinders on when it comes to our own belief in ourselves.
I know for myself that curiosity drives my growth in many ways, but sometimes not seeing my own talents simply comes down to insecurities. Weigh in below on your thoughts.
Now that being said, Lorie has a slightly different twist on the quote which I particularly liked. That’s the interesting point of perception. Is your own communication being perceived as you mean it to be? Ok your turn, what’s the quote mean to you?
