Anytime I get to talk about my marriage, I get extremely excited. I’ve married the person who, to me, was made for me. I know there are a lot of people who don’t believe in that concept, but I do. A few things I’ve learned since being married on March 1, 2015, is that the person you marry is crucial to your business' success. Why do I say that? Because the atmosphere at your home controls your attitude. We already have a million and one things that we’re thinking about, and knowing that you're failing as a spouse because you can’t find time can take a toll on you. You’re so engulfed with your business that it can make your significant other bitter if they don’t understand you. Have you ever heard the saying “happy wife happy life”? Exactly. And vice versa, the same applies for husbands who are supporting their ambitious wives or any combination of spouses supporting each other's dreams. But beyond that, think about what it would be like if you married someone who dreaded the entrepreneurship lifestyle? Someone who really didn’t understand how you thought. Think about every time you share a new idea and it being shot down with sarcastic narcissism and with a hint of a “here they go with another idea” look on their face. That’s draining for any entrepreneur. We are full of ideas and excited about almost each and every one of them. If you have a spouse who doesn’t understand that, it can make for a rocky marriage.
