Be an entrepreneur

Married to an Entrepreneur

When you’re married to an entrepreneur, hold on for the ride.  Your relationship can be chaotic and mayhem.  Be prepared for the flight of ideas and financial ups and downs.  Your life together will be an adventure.  You must prepare for the inconsistency, distance, mayhem, and chaos.  Otherwise, you need not apply.

Remember Your Spouse

As for the entrepreneur, you need to be sensitive to the needs of your partner.  You need to take time away from the office and not get stuck in the phenomenon of just one more thing.  Don’t get distracted by the many squirrels that you can chase or the shiny object syndrome.  Work-life balance is difficult when you’re in business for yourself.  Trust your partner to bring stability to the relationship and your life.  Together you will have a synergistic effect building your empire.

Your life together can be incredibly vibrant, exciting, and dynamic. However, it can also be lonely and depressing.  If you need help finding balance and reprioritizing life, we can help.  The Fredericksburg Relationship Center can help you rediscover the support, value, and joys of your relationship.  Take our Brief Relationship Risk Assessment survey to see where your relationship stands.
