Dual Career Couples Working From Home? Help is here. (from Harvard Biz Review)

Full disclosure, I am in a dual career couple marriage and my business partner happens to also be my life partner and husband. We have been at this for 20+ years. We don't typically lead with that fact because we want our clients to know our brand and culture, not our marital status. Our corporation is more than competent to bring solutions to very large brands who depend on us to manage their brand compliance. What does it matter that we fell into working as business partners and we happen to be married? It doesn't. It's not easy. Most of my friends say they could never do it. Trust me, if you are a dual professional couple right now, managing work and family life under one roof, you can do this....temporarily. The fact that you don't own a business together, removes a ton of complexity. Reading this may even give you sigh of relief that you do not "work with" your spouse! Harvard Business Review has published this article in their FREE content, which unpacks the current challenges and gives you some tips for taking action as a dual professional couple in the time of Covid-19. We sincerely hope this resource provides a respite from normal tensions around balancing priorities of two professions in one household.
