Unlocking Potential with Shared Knowledge & Resources
This month on the Spark Influence podcast, Peter Phillip and Misty Phillip focus on ways we can grow as leaders in our marriage, families, and business. In today's episode, we talk about unlocking the potential of collaboration by sharing resources and knowledge.
Unique Skills and Perspective
Most couples like us likely have different and unique areas of expertise and resources at our disposal. Sharing these resources and knowledge with each other helps us both to grow and learn.
We see this principle in scripture portrayed beautifully in Colossians 3:16, which says, "16 Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly, teaching and admonishing one another in all wisdom, singing psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, with thankfulness in your hearts to God."
Support and Encourage Your Partner
We, believers, should always teach and encourage one another in our faith. When your spouse is your business partner, you have the unique opportunity to help one another grow spiritually, mentally, and physically.
iA key to success is to recognize the importance of providing support and encouragement to one another, as well as having a teachable spirit. Having a supportive network of people around us can help us grow both professionally and personally. A teachable spirit allows us to learn from our mistakes and take constructive criticism in order to become better versions of ourselves.
Marriage is a Partnership
Life is full of unexpected twists and turns. Marriage is a partnership that can be strained by financial responsibilities and obligations with our family, health challenges, and raising kids. Starting and running a business together can add stress and strain, so having a supportive partner is essential.
Encourage each other, offer words of encouragement, and be there to provide support when things get tough. Build one another up with encouraging words and acts of kindness.
Mentors and Trusted Advisors
Seek out mentors and surround yourself with trusted advisors. Wise friends, mentors, or advisors can offer valuable guidance and support as you navigate the challenges of marriage and entrepreneurship. Seek mentors and advisors to help you grow and learn as a couple to support your shared goals.
