As entrepreneurs, we went into business for ourselves so we can create a life we love. We also know that this whole work/life balance debate is a joke. From my work as a relationship expert and entrepreneur who is married with four kids – I can tell you this: work/life balance is the biggest myth perpetuated on women, (and men too for that matter) since I don’t know what. When you read my book: “Not Tonight Dear, I’ve Got a Business to Run!” Enrich Your Marriage While Prospering in Your Business you will learn that entrepreneurial women need to learn to reconcile their work and family responsibilities – not balance them! And my book provides you with a proven system and strategies that show you exactly how to do just that.
Let me give you a sneak preview and some excerpts from my upcoming book – it reveals one of the most important secrets needed for creating success in your business and marriage and family life – and that is the need to create a family plan! Why? When you live with people who are important to you, business decisions are no longer entirely yours to make. What you do for a living, and how you shape your workday, affects all who live with you, or rely on you, each day. News flash: your business is not just about you!
The most common mistake married entrepreneurs make is to rush into business decisions without careful thought and discussion of how their business dreams will involve and affect their family. A family plan is a map as well as a compass for your entrepreneurial adventure. Creating a family plan will not eliminate your romantic vision or throw cold water on your entrepreneurial dream. It will, however, ensure that you are at least traveling with your partner on the same path, in the right general direction. Thoroughly discussing your business dreams and planning with your family will help you choose the entrepreneurial path with the most potential for satisfying your long-term individual, couple, and family goals.
Your family plan involves asking yourself very specific questions designed to launch you and your partner into initial discussions of some of the larger issues related to entrepreneurship and self employment. These questions are a good start toward thinking about your family plan issues. “Not Tonight Dear, I’ve Got a Business to Run!” walks you through a proven system and strategy that begins with these family planning discussions. The book continues to go into more depth that enables you to prepare and create a thorough family plan essential for success in your marriage and family life as you pursue your entrepreneurial business.
