Everyone has heard that in order to increase your business you should stay connected to family, friends, and past clients. The area that most people falter is in asking their spouse or significant other to help increase his/her business. The people that are the closest to you know your strengths and weaknesses. They know how dedicated you are to your craft and how knowledgeable you are. Your significant other or spouse will be just as happy as you are when your business booms, so let them sign your praise!
