How To Talk To Your Partner About Your Business When They’re Not an Entrepreneur

Obvious statement alertRunning a business online takes a lot of hard work and sacrifice.

I know, it’s a total “duuuh” statement.

But here’s the thing…

If you have a significant other who doesn’t get it?

Well, it can feel straight up draining trying to navigate conversations with them about your business.

Which is why I wanted to bring Marla Mattenson onto the podcast this week.

Who the eff is Marla you ask?

She’s a relationship coach for entrepreneurs!

Which means she not only gets our crazy world of entrepreneurship, but she’s been helping digital entrepreneurs improve their communication with their partners so they can get on the same page and lead love-filled lives!

So, if you’ve ever felt like you’ve had to justify why you do what you do…

Or explain why you work the hours you do…

Or break down why you’re making certain investments in your business…

Or tried to set boundaries that allow you the space to create…

Then you’ve gotta scroll up and give this a listen!

Because your dreams don’t have to be an area of disconnection in your relationship!

And in this episode Marla is arming you with the strategies you need to make the balance between your business and your love life easier.
