Build A Business Around Your FamilyIs it just me or are many entrepreneurs SO addicted to the thought of success that they’re willing to trade off their marriage and children in their pursuit?

I used to think that it was necessary to temporarily suspend my role as a husband and father while I got my business to the place I felt it needed to go. When my business got there, I would then have the family time I really wanted.

Why You Must Have A Family Focused Business Now

But what if that time never comes? What if you lose them before you actually get there or what if they lose you before then?

What if you do reach that level of success but your hunger increases for something even more which further delays this magical period of time where your business is good enough to detach and invest back into your family?

I finally got it. I was giving my family everything I never had… except for me.

That changed everything. That’s when I decided it was more valuable to enjoy every moment with them while I build my business than putting them aside for success. Unfortunately, for some, these temporary adjustments have led to permanent loss.

As your grow your business, decide that your family is a vital part of real success.

Build a business that supports your ideal lifestyle rather than creating a life around your business.

    My husband and I have owned our accounting firm for 30 years. So many people say “I could never work with my spouse.” But the point brought up about prioritizing your family is so true. Long ago we made a promise, that once the day is over (for the most part) work talk is off limits. That is time for us. I think because the mindset of us being the most important vs the business being the most important, allows us to have a great relationship both in the office and out of the office. Thanks Alex, for talking about. You are also correct – it helps to be married to a terrific and supportive husband.
