Why Working With Your Sister Is The Best
Have you had the chance to work alongside your sibling? So Fresh Mag's editor-in-chief Vanessa and I are sisters and we've learned so much from this venture already!
You Can Tell It Like It Is
There is no need to beat around the bush. You two have been through more together than anyone. Besides a little kicking and screaming during your childhood, you are actually capable of communicating at a level other pairs can’t. Sugar coating isn’t necessary. With some serious sister love and respect, clarity comes naturally and without the worry of being offensive.
She Actually Gives A Shit
Feeling awful, drained, run down and just having a shitty week? Unlike other business partners your sister knows everything there is to know about whats up in your life and genuinely cares about you feeling better. Getting some much needed down time isn’t an inconvenience but necessity when it comes to wishing the best for one another.
You Braid My Hair, I'll Braid Yours
Sisters working together somehow manage to take the weight of one another's shoulders without it seeming like an inconvenience. You don’t need to worry about the many hurdles in your path because you know, 100 per cent that you have each other's backs regardless of the circumstances.
The Feeling Is Totally Mutual
When coming across unfortunate professional interactions you have the amazing luxury of feeling the same way as your sis. As a result of your upbringing, you are on the same page when it comes to what you believe is ethical and appropriate. When feeling unsettled or perturbed by a not-so-pleasant work-related experience, you know that you have someone on your side.
You Grow More Than You Ever Expected
Yes, you were snotty little kids together, you were often each other’s only playmates and you spent your gruelling high school years trying to sort out who you were side-by-side but working together brings a whole new level to growth. Through hard work, your accomplishments and trials make you a stronger team. The pride, respect and evolution while working together is unlike any other sisterly experience and the pay-off is better than any paycheque!
