Today's Magic up your blog challenge is: "How do you get your spouse on board with your business?"
This makes for a short blog, I think.
One thing about this guy I married, he is always behind me 100%.
30 years ago when I wanted to follow my heart and not was "expected" of me, he encouraged me to work for pennies while I learned the trade of pet grooming. When I wanted to go to trade shows to learn more, he found a way to squeeze the budget so I could do so. When I desired to pursue an elite certification he bought me the whole package for Christmas, then pushed and nudged me to study and test and do the travel needed to complete that dream, quickly.
So it was no surprise that when life recently suggested I leave my secure job and throw caution to the wind to start a new home-based business, he became my personal cheer leader. When I waffled, "Do I cheap out and buy the $300 widget or go for the gusto and buy the $1,000 one?" he was adamant, "Buy the best. I want you go go to work in the morning and have everything just exactly as you want it. I don't want you to have buyers remorse over the tools you use." I embraced his suggestion and am thankful every day.
Early on in our marriage he said, "Isn't it nice to know you always have someone who's got your back?" Nice doesn't quite begin to describe it.
