I am co-founder and a director and 'employee' of a CIC. What are people's opinions of running a business with a spouse? I am the driver behind the company, any business we get is because I have put the feelers out. I completely believe in the WE in business or anything that needs more than one person to keep it going, but I do struggle when asking my partner to do a task, which is usually relevant to his skill set. I feel like I am 'bossing' him. I do usually have to ask several times for a task to be done. I try to use NVC in all my communications but do get frustrated when I have to keep asking for something to be done. I'm aware my own communication skills might need to be worked on. Any special tips or signposting, would be appreciated.
