Money Matters: Blake & Tracy Talk Finances in Partnership with Work Muse


We’ve partnered with Work Muse in a series about our “accidental job share team” and how our partnership has formed the foundation of GT Therapy Group as well as leading us into an offshoot venture, Relationship Coaching for Business Partners (check out the first collaboration here). We are passionate about the work we do, and this partnership is the glue that holds it all together (including holding us together when one or both of us is getting a little too much life stuff at once).

This week we’re diving into real talk about money, and what we’ve learned about how our relationship with money influences our relationship with each other as well as the health of our business. Pretty much everything we’ve learned can also be applied to how we relate to money in our personal relationships as well, since being in business together is a lot like being in a marriage!

As relationship therapists, it really all comes back to relationships. What we’ve learned about how to relate to money from our earliest experiences in our families, the beliefs & values we have about money, the fears & worries we have about money, what is ok and not ok to talk about when it comes to finances…it’s all part of what has helped us grow, meet our individual and collective needs, and nurture our partnership and our business

Job sharing our therapy practice was the best decision we ever made, one that’s given us an appreciation for job share teams in every sector. Our goal is to support your job share partnership’s health and well being through our personal experience job sharing and counseling partners in life and business. That way, even in the hard areas, like bacon and biscuits, you reap the enormous benefits of job sharing. Read on…

Work Muse  supports job-sharing as a means of achieving work-life balance while having a thriving career; something near and dear to our hearts. Follow all the awesomeness here !

ProTip: Spotlight from Work Muse on Job Sharing with Blake & Tracy

We are thrilled to share a collaboration with the founder of Work Muse, Melissa Nicholson, who has a series of interviews with us on our “accidental job share” of co-owning and co-directing our wonderful group practice here. Our first article highlights the ways we put our work relationship first, so that we can bring our best selves to our partnership, our team, our clients and our families. It’s not always easy, but it’s always richly rewarding. We take time to really check in with each other, we show up for each other, we talk it out, and we know how to have fun while doing hard work:

We owe this to ourselves and each other, as well as our therapists and clients. Good communication = love + directness. We don’t wait to talk until we’re burning in resentment. Little things can slide, but the stuff that gets us in our feels is a signal it’s time to talk. Conflict resolution makes your partnership stronger. -Blake & Tracy
