028: How to get the support you need from your partner (even after a business failure)

Starting a business can be frustrating, exhausting and downright difficult! But what can make it even harder is a lack of support from those closest to you. Taking on a new endeavour like a startup puts emotional and financial strain on families and relationships are tested.

From my own experience and knowledge from working with other parentpreneurs, I know that if you have the backing of your partner it makes entrepreneurship 10 times easier. Equally, without the emotional support of a partner, self-doubt, progress and success can be negatively impacted.

In this episode of the podcast, I will be discussing how to get your partner on-board with your decision to start a business and how to get them to provide continued support as you attempt to grow it. (Even if you’ve previously had a failed attempt!)
