Penguin was having a spat with her son at home. They had been arguing over whether or not he could build a porch onto the back of his room to have some more privacy. The trouble was…her son also worked with her at their shared business. While the argument wasn’t a major one she knew that if they let their personal, family argument become a work issue that their business would begin to slip. Penguin decided to sit down with her son one night before they went back to work and speak with him about the problem. They agreed not only on the porch but also on never bringing up family matters at work.
