Every year, December is the unofficial business plan month. This month, you may see articles, commercials, etc., that focuses on setting aside time to work on a plan for a specific business.  This year, TripconyMay encourages you to make a plan, but not for your business; make a family plan. This type of plan may consist of a boss, an executive, and staff, with one simple mission: TO BE A TEAM!

First, we have to figure out who’s going to be the boss and the executive.  This should be one or both of the parents. We can call this co-parenting.  Next, we have to figure out the staff and their responsibilities. The staff or in this case, the children, should be responsible for receiving. Receiving what you may ask…your love, your support, your encouragement, your empathy, your respect, and your dedication.

Let’s get back to the mission, the team. A team is a group of individuals working together for a common goal. The goal for this specific plan is to be a family. A team that works together to become a family, that sounds simple, right? Lastly, we have to strategize. As a team, working to achieve the desired result; we have to stick to the mission. So we ask you, what can you add in your plan to get your desired result in order to complete your mission?

Michael J. Fox once said, “Family is not an important thing, it is everything.” Working in the area of family law, we definitely have some ideas that you may use to help your family achieve its mission.  Even if it is going to a soccer game and you are tired from working a 12-hour shift. It could even be helping your child with their homework, cooking, and balancing a checkbook all at the same time. Putting your family first on top of everything is one idea to add to your list, it can even go at the top of your list. Then, you can just work your way down. Remember this is a plan, and your family is your business!
