In this episode we dive into the dynamics of doing business with a friend, or partner. What does that look like, and how do you navigate a new business relationship when it merges with a personal relationship?
Thinking about hiring a friend or family member? Sarah challenges us to think through this.
She also talks about the difference between a ‘friend friend’ and a ‘work friend’, and how those relationships are very different.
Sarah gives great advice on how to communicate and set expectations upfront around the boundaries of the relationship. If you take one thing away from this episode, it is the importance of communication, setting boundaries and expectations.
Another key take-away? You need to set priorities. You need to ask yourself, in this relationship, what is the priority? The business or the personal relationship?
Be very clear on expectations, and what contribution looks like for both people in the partnership.
Sarah has so many great tips and insights; I hope you enjoy it!
