Howdy! A Portland, OR native, I currently reside in the northern San Diego County area as a freelance writer. When I'm not sipping coffee, soaking up some rays and writing or playing guitar you can find me at the hot yoga studio.
When you know what makes a couple successful you will be able to know what you need to do in your relationship for it to work.
Successful couples have the following qualities:
Once you have all these things in common, you can go further and know what to do to make it work.
Having a sex life that is satisfying and sexual is a lot of work but you can have a good sex life if you find what works for you. Here are some tips that may help you.
Communicate with your partner before your sexual interaction to know what they want and what they need.
Develop a sexual fantasy together.
Make sex a priority and allow time for it.
Talk about all the possibilities and try different things.
There are a lot of things that are very important to have a satisfying sex life.
You need communication, space, and respect. You also need to work together to make it work.
Start with healthy sex education. Discuss what you do and do not like and how to enhance your sex life.
Remember, the more you enjoy it the better it will be.
Are you still confused?
You can get yourself medical help that will help you with your sex life and you can even live a healthy sex life.
So if you've got a partner who is also your business partner and you've been together long enough, I think we can agree that there are some ways you and your partner differ that could be beneficial in your business.
For example, you might have a different idea about marketing or branding or marketing tactics.
You might have different opinions about inventory management or workflow processes.
These types of differences can help your business thrive, too, but only if you approach the differences collaboratively and positively.
Being successful at business is all about how comfortable you feel with your decisions.
The more confident you feel, the more likely you are to stick to the path that has been proven to be successful. However, it's not about being arrogant.
You see that confidence in successful couples by how they react to challenges and how they push past the hard work it takes to be successful.
Whether your business is B2B or B2C, the more you can offer your partner support, the more they will lean on you for help and advice.
In turn, you will be more confident in the decisions you make and the decisions that you aren't even privy to make.
It's a win-win for both partners, and it goes both ways.
Do you ever find yourself in a conversation and one person will talk about an idea or a concept and the other person seems to be completely lost?
Successful couples understand that one isn't always right or always wrong, and they can put aside those moments and focus on the big picture.
This isn't always easy, but it's a necessary trait if you want to make it in a partnership, especially if your business is based on your personal life.
As soon as you start down the path of pushing your partner aside or looking down on their ideas, the relationship can become poisonous and it's much easier to just move on.
That doesn't mean you don't have value and contribution.
An experienced business partner can add a ton of value to your business, but if you're going to succeed, you need to recognize when your partner is saying something that might be exactly the opposite of what you want to hear.
I recently interviewed Arianna Huffington and I asked her the same question I ask any successful partner I interview: "How do you make your partnership successful?"
Her response: "I am extremely detail-oriented. My partner is not."
"What does that mean?" I asked her.
"My partner is not detail-oriented. I'm detail-oriented. He just doesn't see things as I do."
"You're right, Arianna," I replied, "It does have something to do with your detail orientation and his lack thereof."
"But," she continues, "I don't see how that makes us disagreeable or unproductive. We're different in that way, but we know when to recognize each other's strengths."
I believe this is also true in business partnerships.
There are plenty of great couples that achieve incredible success, and they all do it by collaborating and focusing on what's most important.
It's definitely not easy to work with someone you don't get along with, and I'm not saying that's how you and your partner should run your business, but I do believe that's how you and your partner can succeed.
