Show Notes

On today’s show we welcome two very special guests, my two daughters, Rachael and Chloe Bennett. In the previous episode, I talked to my husband and business partner, Greg Bennett, about working with your spouse. In today’s episode, we continue to unpack the topic of working together with family. How does a family with such unique individuals come together to work in the same place? Do personal issues hinder the function of business, do the family relationships create problems with other team members? Well, in this episode my daughters and I discuss these questions to get down to the true answers. We dive into Rachael and Chloe’s backgrounds and how those journeys have shaped their contributions to the family business. We also explore the importance of setting boundaries and the detrimental effects that can result in relationships when those boundaries are not honored. For all this and more, keep listening!
