Doing business with your spouse or partner can be fraught with danger, especially in a start-up, where emotions run high and cash is scarce.

For some, the notion of working with a husband or wife, and spending every minute together building a business, is a desirable scenario.

But for others, it can be a highly stressful experience, which is why it’s important to know what you’re getting yourself in for.

Today, business research group Knowledge@Wharton explores the pros and cons of doing business with your other half.

Elsewhere, HR expert Martin Nally discusses whether now is a good time to hire, while Rebekah Campbell also has some ideas about how start-ups should approach the recruitment process.

And if you haven’t already, don’t forget to enter the 2013 StartupSmart Awards before the submission deadline on February 20.
