About This Episode

In this Bonus Next Step, BELAY clients Tony & Kristina Ebel share the biggest lesson they’ve learned about relationships from running a business together.

1. Get around people who have great relationships. Don’t leave it up to yourself. Seek out great mentors and people in your circles. When you surround yourself with those kinds of people who have incredible relationships, you almost can’t help but learn how to emulate that.

2. Maintain open communication. Expectations need to be communicated. Try using phrases like “I would love to get more involved in this” and “Maybe this is a part of the business I don’t love being that close in.” When you are honest and clear, you can begin to take action.
