I’ve spoken with a number of coaches who have told me that they’re having trouble getting their spouses (or partners) on board with their businesses.
These unsupportive spouses make snide comments, give them a hard time about working, or
do other things to weaken their confidence and make them feel like crap.
While I don’t use a blanket suggestion to “get a divorce,” I do suggest to these coaches to have a good talk with their partner and let them know they won’t tolerate anything that hurts their mindset and motivation (if the partner doesn’t come around then I would pack my bags personally).
My other suggestion to these coaches is to plow ahead and start making money (in my experience, once a spouse sees money rolling into the bank account from coaching, they’re much more likely to be supportive of it).
Rob Goyette agrees with me …
I recently heard Rob say that the best way to convince an unsupportive spouse to get on board with a coaching business is to get money rolling in, and he has the answer for that.
