Do you have an unsupportive spouse?

Since you've decided to become an entrepreneur, you've probably realized how much more challenging your life has become. If you're married, your spouse has probably realized this as well. Maybe your spouse is very supportive. If that's the case, good for you! If not, just know you're not alone.


So, maybe you're one of those who comes home to a disgruntled and critical spouse day after day.


You want to do God's will, and you truly believe this is the next step in your life, but your spouse doesn't see things the same way you do. We get it.


This can take a toll on your marriage. Stats say that entrepreneurs have a higher rate of divorce than the norm.


But hey, you don't want to become a statistic and choose your business over your spouse, right?


This is why this week's episode is so important. In fact, for some of you, it could save your marriage!


Let's face it, if you're an Entrepreneur at heart, it's not easy to be married to you! 


Entrepreneurs can be impulsive, over-excited, or on fire when they have a project in mind.


They may even try many different business ventures or home businesses in their lifetime.


This episode will help you in two ways. We'll help you understand your spouse better, and we'll help you to show your spouse just how great this vision of yours can be!


And, if you're the mompreneur in this marriage and your husband always has something negative to say about your business... you're going to love this episode too!


So, put away the kleenex, your marriage is far from over. It's all going to work out. Hey, we've got your back!


You're welcome.


In this Episode you will:

♦ Learn the top reasons couples fight over this and are unsupportive of one another.

♦ Understand the reasons your spouse may feel insecure about your new business venture.

♦ Learn how to gently lead your spouse towards this vision and plan of yours.

♦ Learn how you, as an entrepreneur, can strengthen your marriage even when you are challenged for time.


Bible Verses:


Genesis 2:22-24 (KJV):

And the rib, which the Lord God had taken from man, made he a woman, and brought her unto the man. And Adam said, This is now bone of my bones, and flesh of my flesh: she shall be called Woman, because she was taken out of Man.Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh.


1 Peter 3:1-2 (NIV)

Wives, in the same way submit yourselves to your own husbands so that, if any of them do not believe the word, they may be won over without words by the behavior of their wives, when they see the purity and reverence of your lives.
