As Angelina and Brad announce two new films together, we ask whether working with your other half (or indeed your entire family) is ever a good idea?
Bringing work problems home and maintaining a healthy work-life balance, are, however, the obvious drawbacks of the situation. Although some people argue that it’s a false distinction to try and separate at-work and at-home life anyway (because even if you don’t work together it’s likely you tell your partner everything that happened in the office) it certainly could be more difficult to switch off together and talk about anything other than your business.
Finally, work with other people too. Build a network, do conference calls – anything. Because if you isolate yourself in a Pinterest perfect home office with just your partner forever, that’s a definite recipe for a very real Mr and Mrs Smith-style murder.
