Episode 009: Communication

August 2, 2016

Communicating with your partner

We always say communication is key… here’s how we handle it.

In this week’s episode, we’re communicating with your partner in business and in life. Good communication is truly how we’ve been able to work and live together without driving each other (totally) insane. Enjoy!

In this episode:

  • Communicating when working together
  • Keeping each other in the loop
  • Taking the lead on projects
  • Communicating how you work best
  • How to ask questions
  • Wal-mart Grocery Pickup (referral link — you get $10 off your first order, and we’ll get $10 off our next!)

Our rules for communication

  1. Talk about everything.
  2. Assume the other person has the best intentions.
  3. Check yourself before you wreck yourself.
