Speaking with couples in business each week, there are certain factors that continually present as having the BIGGEST influence on their success.
Firstly, their dedication to each other above all else.
Secondly is their ability to communicate — specifically to listen wholeheartedly and then respond in a way that supports the advancement of the conversation.
In today’s conversation with Randeep and Renu Wasal, I learnt that even when you’ve been married a long time — these guys are about to hit 18 years! — enhancing communication still needs to be the number one focus when it comes to blending the boardroom and the bedroom.
Randeep and Renu’s product, Bsociable, really captured my imagination and our conversation gives a deep insight into their vision and the evolution of that platform over the past two years.
This softly-spoken duo showcases perfectly how two VERY different professional backgrounds and skill sets can come together to create a dynamic product.
