When Your Mate Is Your Business Partner

There is nothing new about the practice of a couple (married or otherwise) running a business.  In  agricultural setting, the husband would work the fields, while the wife ran the house.  In a different industry, in a more contemporary cultural setting,   One half of the team does the sales, the other handles administrative duties.

When part of a working team that also alternates who does the dinner dishes at home, how best to strike that balance between when to deal with “work stuff,” and when not to?  See how one couple is profiled.  (Her first name is Milagros, which is Spanish for “miracles.”  Here’s hoping that they experience a lot of them.)
