The divorce rate for entrepreneurs is 48%. That means that nearly half of all marriages fail when put under the pressure of starting a company.
Building a business from scratch, and bootstrapping it for that matter, is one of the most difficult challenges that you will ever face in business because the risk is real and it's all on the line. Your career, your reputation, your relationships... Everything is at risk because of the high-pressure, high-risk, and high-reward all swirling around at the same time.
As a serial entrepreneur with a steadily growing portfolio of businesses that I oversee and invest in, if I could say there was one crucial element to my success, it's Emilee. I would say, recognizing God's grace on it all, there would be no chance of success without Emilee being who she is and supporting me the way she has.
Today I asked Emilee to join in and share what we've learned, the mistakes we've made, and the protections we put in place at the beginning so that no matter what happened, we remained strong and our marriage survived. I have no doubt that she will be an encouragement and her wisdom will be impactful as you seek to lead your business well.
Main things we'll be talking about:
- The right partner will skyrocket your business
- Setting boundaries in business to protect your marriage
- Bad goals will kill your relationships
