I used to be “that guy” that said “I’m married to my business” and “I’ll sleep when I’m dead.”
Unfortunately, as I got older and more mature, I found myself coming up empty handed with this way of thinking.
You can make as much money as you want in business, but what’s all that without a spouse/partner/significant other to enjoy it with?
Personally, I don’t find much satisfaction in loving things that can’t love me back.
In this week’s episode of The Startup Hero Podcast, I talk about the benefits of getting your spouse/partner/significant other involved in your business or working with you to find common ground in your relationship.
When I used to host IMGrind seminars across the United States, one of the most common problems a lot of Startup Entrepreneur’s faced, was lack of spousal/partner support.
Running a startup is hard but it’s even harder when you don’t have a good support system to help you when things get challenging.
While being an Entrepreneur can be very rewarding, it can also be just as much challenging if you don’t address important things such as this.
A good solution I’ve found is by involving my wife. Listen to learn how she used this as her motivation to start her own company and how she just recently left her 9-5 secular job!

I rarely post on blogs. But as a woman, I just wanted to let you and your wife know how inspiring this podcast was!!
And, they say for every one person who comments there’s probably 100 people who think the same thing but who don’t comment. We ladies in the business would love to hear more from your wife. And also it’s also good to hear the perspective of an entrepreneur and his/her interaction with his spouse. A lot of what keeps people down is relationships and this issue is really important. Please do more of these and if you get a chance share this comment with your Wife so she’ll be inspired to blog :).
I’m sure there are women who was just like her and to hear her journey through your words of going from being a single mom to meeting a successful, supportive entrepreneur who also inspires her to pursue her own business is really really exciting. Thanks and God bless.!
