*Marriage and relationships are like a business and I am not talking about the rich and famous who get together for the benefit of their finances but I am talking about maintaining ( 6 ) good practices day in-day out.*

#1 The Interview– When you go on a job interview, the employer ask questions about you and qualifications, just like when you go on a date.  This first date will determine whether there is a second or not…so make a good impression always.
#2 Customer Satisfaction- When you are in business, your customers are the most important for sustaining your business, in a relationship, couples need to know when their needs aren’t being met and what they need to improve on.
#3 Communication- When you are in business, make sure that you are knowledgeable about the products and services you are are selling and where they are coming from, in a relationship, it is important to keep all lines of conversation open to let the partner know where you are in your thoughts and feelings about certain topics.  If something bothers you or is offensive and hurts you let them know.  This allows for each person to get to know where each other’s placement and views come from.

#4 Quotas- With any successful business, there are deadlines, schedules and maintenance needed to keep the business fresh and new, meanwhile, in a relationship, whether you are abstinent or having intercourse regularly, it is very important to have time set aside for Maintenance needed on both ends.  Making plans for date night every week incorporating family events or just some self-reflection time makes for a healthier relationship.  It also gives an opportunity for excitement and adrenaline rush like when you know you are about to go on vacation from work.  Time is precious-use it wisely.
#5 On-boarding of New Recruits- When in business, employees specialties come into play when it comes to a successful operation.  Now, when it comes to relationships-I am not talking about three-somes and freaky stuff-O.M.L.  I am talking about friendships with couples alike.  Making connections with others like yourself and spending time exchanging stories while having a good time, it helps relationships grow.  It is okay to be each other’s best friend at times because being able to laugh with one another is a plus for a healthy union.
#6 The Bottom-line- When you are running a business, there are going to be times of success and failures.  Mistakes made in business can be costly, so you have to get together as a team and figure out what is needed to get back on track.  In relationships, we are all human and make mistakes and as a team we must communicate, apologize and forgive mistakes.  Find out from each other what is needed to do better next time. Open lines of communication keep the relationship and individual changing for the better.  Closing the door, leads to heartache and shutdown.

Family Meetings are a must have….

Yes…everyone it is time for the Parenting Tip for February.
  So me and my family decided to do our monthly family meeting differently…we discovered Zoom. If you have never used Zoom, it is a way to get everyone on the same page without being in the same room.
We tried it…and of course we had some hiccups
Devon Smith -erased the text I sent for the Zoom meeting
Briana Smith– never got the text for Zoom meeting
Brian Smith Jr.- was playing on his screen too much
but Sr. surprised me being the less tech savvy out of all us and showing up first to the meeting👍
 Okay, so after I resent the link and everyone was on board after 10 minutes we got started finally. I will tell you that having a meeting like this is awesome!! We talked about chores…everyone picked a number 1-5 and all the chores were scrambled so they couldn’t get the same one twice. I got whatever was left over…DISHES..ugh.
Anyhow, everyone having a chance to speak their opinions on our topics was easier and the teens appreciated it.
This month we implemented Employee of the Month- At our next meeting, each person writes down a person, other than themselves, who deserves the incentive. Whoever wins gets a prize…stay tuned to find out who wins!!
