Business mogul, supermodel, and American media personality, Cole Moscatel, runs an empire enterprise with his supermodel wife, Kelsea Moscatel. The power couple built their brand, Snob World, and successfully turned that into a multifaceted empire that has multiple different business sectors and branches. For a lot of men, the thought of working every single day with their wife may cause them to fear how they would separate a work relationship from a romantic relationship, or just an overall sense of pressure having to run a business with their spouse. Cole Moscatel is absolutely one of the best examples you could ever ask for when wondering how to cope with something like that.
Cole Moscatel has been a successful entrepreneur since the age of 12. Since then, he has opened and runs a multitude of different businesses all on his own. When he got married to his wife Kelsea, he married a powerful entrepreneurial woman. It is no wonder the two put their entrepreneurial brilliance together to create a massively successful company. Making the switch from usually handling business on his own to handling a new company with his wife was certainly a new challenge for Cole. But he wouldn’t have it any other way. Below are five tips on how to successfully build an empire with your spouse.
1. Only Go Into Business Together If You Are Both Genuinely Passionate About What You Are Starting.
There is no way you can both successfully build something together if one of you feels less excited about the brand as a whole. If you both feel strongly and genuinely love the business idea, it is bound to flow smoothly. Cole and Kelsea at their core are business people who have a taste for luxury living. Those two components easily led them to create Snob World, a platform that services a multitude of different luxury living opportunities and experiences. Cole’s advice for the first steps of going into business with your spouse is to never go through with it unless you both are equally as passionate and excited about the project.
2. Clarify Each Other’s Roles.
There is absolutely no shame in determining who is in charge of what. Lines should never cross, that’s where the chaos can begin. Know who is in charge of what, and meet in the middle for the teamwork when needed. Cole handles the business aspects and Kelsea handles the creative aspects for some projects, and vice versa depending on which business they are handling. Roles can even be determined on a day by day basis, as long as the communication is strong and clear.
3. Separate Your Work Relationship From Your Romantic Relationship –– For The Most Part.
Let’s make one thing clear –– if you go into business with your spouse, you better not treat them as a different person when working together. However, you must keep things professional. With that being said, when in the office or taking care of business, try not to allow personal emotions to play too big of a role, nor should you take things too personally. Be kind and never treat your partner like something less than a spouse, but you certainly have to remember what each other’s priorities are in that moment –– which is taking care of business.
4. It Is Imperative To Have Work Hours That Begin and That End.
Cole says that he and Kelsea have their work hours begin and end typically at the same time every day and do not discuss business matters during non-work hours, unless necessary. It is crucial to have those moments with family and your wife where you are just being husband and wife, not a business partner and business partner.
5. If It’s What You Love You Will Succeed.
Cole shares that because he and Kelsea actually genuinely love working and building their empire, they truly work together with ease! They get asked all the time how they do it, and they usually simply respond with, “Because we love it!”. How can you be successful if you don’t love doing it?
At the end of the day, Cole and Kelsea love nothing more than succeeding and achieving together. However, you can be sure the two make an extra effort with their romance. Whether it’s a surprise getaway or a weekly date night on the town, they make it work. Cole believes that if you go into business with your wife and you follow the above five tips, you and your spouse are bound to massively succeed.
