When you’re growing your business, it’s not a matter of “if”, it’s a matter of “when” you’re going to need to make an investment BEFORE you’ve generated the income to pay for it. Whether you’re just starting out, or even if you’ve been in business a while and you desire to grow to the next level.
And the money has to come from somewhere. It may need to come from your savings, from other disposable income that was earmarked for other things, maybe it has to come out of the immediate profits in your business that you can’t yet take out for yourself or your family, or maybe you even need to borrow it.
And when you’re in a relationship where your money Is pooled, it can sometimes feel like those decisions aren’t yours to make.
And as the wife/partner in your relationship, money decisions that may affect the household and your life together ARE a partnership decision.
However as the CEO of your business – deciding and investing in what your business needs IS your sole decision, and responsibility.
So what do you do when the two worlds collide and you need to make a crucial investment in your business and you’re worried your spouse will not be on board? How do you balance your vows and commitment to your spouse, with your commitment and responsibility to your business?
In today’s episode we dive into how to approach this oh-so-important and delicate conversation without feeling guilty and without asking permission, while ensuring your husband is part of the process.
I share with you the EXACT mindsets, strategies and approaches I use in my own home with my own husband when I’ve needed to make big investments. It’s not always an easy conversation, however by using this approach we always come together on an empowered decision that works for both of us.
I’m also sharing with you some scripts you can use to start these conversations from an empowered place. Believe me, when you know exactly what to say to get the conversation started, it makes such a difference. Make sure to grab them – they really help!
