AmiSight 1/7: Our Spouses Need Some TLC

I recently read a Bloomberg article that speaks to a relatively undiscussed topic in the entrepreneurial community: our relationships with our spouses. Many small business owners barely find enough time to sleep, let alone prioritize their relationships. We're stressed and overwhelmed with the task of running a business and making decisions that can change our employees’ lives. Unfortunately, our partners are usually the recipient of all that built-up tension. Here are seven relationship savers that happily married entrepreneurs recommend so that your business doesn’t consume your marriage:

  1. End-of-day decompression

  2. Mandatory “us” time

  3. Date nights are "non-negotiable."

  4. When your partner is overworked, step up

  5. The little things are the big things

  6. “Hard stop” for meals

  7. Ask for help on work

Thank you for sharing. OBTW your timing is perfect as just this morning I challenged staff to define what they expect of their partners in support of their work.
