With today’s guest, we are diving into the behind-the-scenes of bringing your partner into your business. This is something so many of you have asked me about, so Zara Watson-Young is here to share her experience of welcoming her husband into her legal business. We talk everything from letting go of full control to making sure you have your legal ducks in a row (because even with your partner, contracts are key!) If you’ve been wondering about bringing in your partner, this is a must-listen.
Zara Watson-Young knows how frustrating it can be to try and fit your career in a box while marching to the beat of your own drum. That’s exactly what led her to close the door on a thriving corporate legal career in order to pursue what truly encompassed all the skills and ambition in her wheelhouse: serving people like you. Zara has served entrepreneurs since 2017, always driven to empower and equip fellow dreamers with tangible legal tools to scale confidently. Along the way, she co-founded Watson & Young with her husband, Sean. She’s here to walk with you every step of the entrepreneurial path because she has traveled this path, too. Zara knows it’s far less intimidating when you have a partner who knows what’s around the bend!

“At the end of the day, knowing who you are, knowing your strengths, each other’s strengths. You may not be good at client facing tasks but maybe you’re better at the operational side. Just knowing what strengths each person will have and also just remembering that these things are developed over time… You’ll gain clarity over time.”
“The biggest mistake is thinking that you can wait to do legal – to make sure you have all your legal ducks in a row… The legal side is literally the foundation.”
“If it doesn’t align for both of us, I’m not going to proceed… I want both of us to be on the same page.”
