As a TIMELESS Businessman, you want to honestly answer this question:
What role does your wife play in your business?
As a TIMELESS Businesswoman what role does your husband play in your business?
Right, at the start-up phase they were involved but soon as that phase is over they play little or no role again.
Yes, you have associates who tells you: You tell/discuss too much of your business with your wife/husband; you can’t trust women/men of this generation; that shows you are weak, you need to proof you “The Man”; you let her know too much of what going on; She is “interfering” too much in your business; Why do you have to discuss with her your intention/decision to use the family home as collateral for the facility with the finance house; There are “Strategic” Information you can’t afford to let her know”
And the advice from the “fantastic” advisers are endless.
LISTEN: You can’t go with such advice. You cannot exclude your spouse from your business life. ACCOUNTABILITY is Key, and your spouse is the No 1 person you’d be accountable to after THE CHIEF STRATEGIST.
Truth is: Our relationship with our spouse is unique and is critical to Good Decision Making!
What you need is: Commitment to Effective Communication with each other to make better decision.
Eccelesiates 4:9 Advisory puts it aptly:
” It’s better to have a partner than go it alone. Share the work, share the wealth. And if one falls down, the other helps..”
Your Spouse is there to even out each other’s extremes… LEVERAGE!
