My Romance Writing Business
is a two-person family business.
Two of us have controlling interest
in it.

That creates challenges
because sometimes we want to go
in different directions.

So we have a designated
third person.
This person is different
for different areas of the business.
He/she is an ‘expert’,
someone we both respect.
We give her/him
the tie-breaking vote
and we abide by that vote.

Steve Roeder,
at Blatt Billiards,
a family-run business,

“The most important thing is respect.
We don’t fight or argue
—we take a vote on everything
and we have a ‘two-man rule,’
so if two men vote one way,
the third must follow
for the benefit of the company.”

Would the two-man rule
work for your small business?
