I’m sorry you can’t really change them BUT here are some tips you can use to make sure you are doing your part.
1.)Communicate- If you are thinking about starting a business let your partner know what you need from them and the possible sacrifices. If your schedule is changing, have another conversation. Be prepared and willing to hear their opinion on it. Its okay if the response isn’t always cheerful but make sure to reiterate what the rewards are and how important the benefits are to you.
2.)Keep your word- Being in love with an entrepreneur isn’t the luxury you think it is…well sometimes but not all of the times! Accepting your passion as a segway to what the rest of their life will look like is a HUGE sign of trust. If nothing else KEEP YOUR WORD!
3.)Share the fruit- the truth is you chose to be in a relationship so you chose to share your fruit. I’m not saying run into financial and emotional abuse but understand that most times if you are dating/married to someone who isn’t an entrepreneur I provide some form of stability for you. Whether it be keeping a routine, consistent pay, lacking that emotional rollercoaster you come with sometimes, and let’s not even talk availability. Even if you are too busy to notice, THEY ARE SACRIFICING! Therefore they deserve the reward.
Love is a complex thing and so is business but they both require great character and growth from YOU!
