Over the last several years, I've noticed a distributing but relatively commonplace problem.
This problem rears its head not only in the small business computer consulting industry, but in all kinds of small business startups.
The problem you ask?
A spouse is not "on board" with your business, and directly and indirectly sabotages your business.
It's usually a lot more than just career interference.
The problem usually starts because of a vast difference in training and exposure to life experiences.
So if you want to avoid well-intentioned, but ill-informed opinions from not only from your spouse, but from other family members, make sure they are FULLY involved in the planning of your business and don't just act like Monday-morning quarterbacks.
