Love For Each Other – This should go without saying, but it is so important that it must be said.  If the love is strong in the marriage, then the love will be strong in the business.  Always remember to never let the love for the business overshadow the love of the marriage. 

Trust – A great level of trust should be apparent in any type of relationship.  When combining a personal relationship with a business relationship, both people should be very trustworthy.  If not, many problems will surface and eventually lead to the failure of one or even both of the relationships.

Be On The Same Page – Understanding the goals and what must be done to achieve them should be addressed prior to taking any step toward starting a home business together.

Be Able To Compromise – This is important because even though this is something being started by the two of you; you both will have your own opinions on issues concerning the business.  Listen to one another, hearing out each other’s thoughts and ideas.  It’s ok to disagree, but insisting on being right all the time can be harmful to the business and marriage.  Remember that there was a reason that both of you wanted to work together, always respect that.

Know Each Other’s Strengths And Weaknesses – Knowing these things going in can really help your business succeed.  Both of you should be bringing something to the table, a special talent so to speak.  One of you may be great at math while the other is a genius when it comes to marketing. Teach each other what you do best while sticking to what you do best.

Learn How To Separate The Business From The Marriage – This is one of the most difficult things to be able to do when it comes to starting a business with your spouse because it is so common for a disagreement concerning the business to spill over into the marriage.  You both must understand upfront that business is business.  Don’t let an argument that can be easily resolved affect something much more important…the personal relationship.

Have Fun – Do not let the struggles and stress of starting a business together stop you from enjoying your life.  Always find time to have fun with each other as well as with the family.  This will in turn lead to a stronger much healthier business relationship and marriage.

Starting a home business with your spouse can be a wonderful thing as long as both individuals believe in and support each other.  Be really sure that you can work together as one strong unit.  No matter what happens with the business, keep the love that brought you together strong, and you will definitely be a success one way or another.
