The most important business relationship you can have is the one with your spouse or significant other and then with your kids. Actually, most businesses fail because one of those relationships is not great. We should therefore be spending much of our time with our spouses or children, but that is not always the case. Entrepreneurs spend all their time and energy in the business and boardrooms and only get “by the way” time for their immediate family.  The effects of a family with disunity, conflict, and lack of effective communication will spiral down to the business. Actually, the family unit is the testing ground for effective leadership and success in business. Do you want to learn skills and strategies for a successful family? Join this conversation with Tracy Taris.

Mrs. Taris is a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist specializing in individual, couples, and family therapy. She treats depression, anxiety, marital conflict, self-esteem issues, and creative blocks. Mrs. Taris maintains a private practice office in Newhall/Valencia, California, in the Santa Clarita Valley, and she also works with clients from the San Fernando Valley and the greater Los Angeles area. With over ten years of experience as a marriage and family therapist and as a graduate of Azusa Pacific University, specializing in marital, family systems, cognitive-behavioral, and psychodynamic therapy, she is currently serving as a private practitioner working with a broad spectrum of clients. 

In this podcast, we talk all about how to improve your communication and conflict resolution and how even busy entrepreneurs can make time for their spouses.
