Marriage is really not a bed of roses and needs careful navigation. Running a business with your spouse brings added risks. It is a double-edged sword.
It can be so wonderful on the one hand, especially when spouses complement each other’s strengths and make up for each other’s weaknesses in the business. But on the other hand, it can put enormous strain on the marriage and even cripple it, with conflicts in the business if not well-managed spilling over to the home.
Trust is a very major ingredient for a successful marriage. Couples who have successfully run jointly-owned businesses often have enormous trust in each other.
Couples who have been able to navigate and surmount the challenges of being married and working together must be applauded.
This is the reason for the HEARTS AS ONE AWARDS – to showcase the fact that couples can be both loving partners and business partners.
Please nominate your candidates for this award. Send details of your nominees to: firstname.lastname@example.org, stating in not more than 300 words why you are nominating the couple for the award.

The awards will be presented to seven winners at the 2017 Pride Women Conference taking place on 24th November 2017 at the Nigerian Institute of International Affairs, Victoria Island, Lagos.
