Creating a Healthy Work Environment With Your Spouse


There are a lot of people who will tell you that it’s impossible to go into business with your spouse. It’ll ruin your relationship, they say. Well, I've tried this – no it didn't work. Not because of the relationship, it didn't work because of other factors. Factors that are present with any business partner or close employee that is a family member.

While it’s true that spending so much time together, especially in such a volatile atmosphere, does have the potential to place some level of strain on your relationship, there are ways that you can be smart about it so that you can both achieve success with your new endeavor.

It doesn't have to be a negative experience. When it is so intense and your work is your passion, this can be healthy, if you understand the underlying pressures.

About Thomas von Ahn

With more than 30 years of experience in B2B sales across various industries, Thomas has unique insight into both the offline and online sales sphere. It was during his time in the trenches that Thomas noticed a recurring theme: Though business owners are knowledgeable about their craft or trade, they often struggle to market and sell to their prospects. This realization is what prompted Thomas and his now business partner, Christine, to bring Viral Solutions to life. Since starting the company, Thomas has been able to assist countless business owners in developing a solid marketing plan based upon sound marketing strategy, then assigning the marketing tactics to a team of talented employees, and, finally, watching those actions unfold—his true passion.

Though Viral Solutions is on Thomas’ mind 24/7, he does occasionally take a break to cheer on the Green Bay Packers and enjoy his adopted home of Wisconsin. Much of his family also works at Viral Solutions, and this closeness with family and employees is the cornerstone of the Viral Solutions culture.
