I often hear people mention they don’t have the support of their spouse when starting a business. I think this is vital if you want your new venture to really thrive.
Support can come in many different styles. Having your spouse onboard, doesn’t mean you check in with them on every little decision, but it does mean you are on the same page with the direction your lives are going.
It means they are, not only OK with, but excited about your new venture, even if they don’t really understand the nuts and bolts of it.
When I quit my job and we started the music school, Claudia was fully onboard. She was fully engaged, and as excited about it as I was. I realize we have a bit of a unique situation because we both truly enjoy thinking and talking business.
This, I am super thankful for! There have been many days where discouragement and frustration get the better of me. However when this happens, she’s right there to pick me up. If we didn’t have this in our relationship, I know we wouldn’t be where we are today.
Question: If you’re married, is your spouse excited about what you’re doing? Leave your response in the comments of the post.
