I remember when Ruth Bader Ginsburg passed away, reading an article about her in which she spoke about her marriage.
She shared the influence her marriage had on her career and what an important decision that was for her when thinking about her work.
And it made me think about how this is something we often forget about in this online business world of ours.
We talk about marketing, sales, funnels, money, and mindset for growth in business. But you don’t hear a lot about cultivating healthy relationships and the impact they can have on your business, do you?
You don’t always hear things like, I was able to have the energy to focus on building my business while still working a busy 9-5 because my partner stepped in to do the groceries, cooking, and errands.
Or, it was easier to post content consistently and put out a weekly blog at the start because I had support at home to bounce ideas around and a second set of eyes for editing.
Or even, when people talked about me behind my back and it got back to me that they were asking “Why does she think she can do this?”... it was easier to keep showing up in belief because there was someone at home who did know I can do this and was vocal about it every day.
While you don’t need to be married or have everyone around you supporting you to be able to build, grow, and scale a profitable business on your terms (let’s not create that story!!), it definitely helps when you do have that support and healthy-drama-free relationships.
Who you choose to surround yourself with - marriage or not - does impact you, your thoughts, and your business.
This is why I’m such a big believer in taking a holistic coaching approach with my clients when it comes to business and what goes into making money on your terms - because it’s wild to think business income and impact is influenced by business only.
Just like your mindset DIRECTLY affects your strategy, how you take action, and your money-making results, sustainability, and scalability, the quality of the relationships you have - in and out of business - also affect you and in turn how you show up and what you’re available for when it comes to making money on your terms.
Besides, if Ruth considered how her marriage would impact her career (and vice versa), who are we to question it? #queen
