Navigating relationships can get tricky for women entrepreneurs, especially if their spouses are building businesses too!

Your relationship doesn’t have to go down the drain as you aim for success. 

eWomenNetwork CEO and Founder Sandra Yancey shares her advice for fellow visionaries on how to keep the fire alive between you and your spouse while hitting those business milestones!

Tune in to this episode: Making Working Together Work with Sandra Yancey

Key points covered in this episode:

✔️ Intentionally shifting your energy from CEO to wife is key. We underestimate the power of a transition ritual. Like how we prepare ourselves to meditate or worship, we need to ready ourselves for the various roles we play.

✔️ Be vocal about your wants and needs. If you’re not in the mood to cook, say it. Don’t expect your spouse to be a mind-reader.

✔️ Respect each other’s sandboxes. It’s best for both of you to ask permission if one of you needs resources from the other’s business. Respect boundaries and practice making clear requests.

✔️ Create structures around meetings. Have a clear agenda and desired outcome and list off-topic ideas and concerns to be discussed in another session. This method works for both business and family meetings! What matters is for everyone to be mentally present.

✔️ The real test of love is how you handle difficult times. You have to learn how to find ways to stick together and work it out. Look back at what has helped you survive, so you can appreciate each other.
