We’ve heard about how a failing business ruins marriage. We’ve also heard from business magazines and elsewhere that having a supportive spouse is the key to achieving success. Now let’s hear it from someone who experienced failure for having an unsupportive relationship and success with a supportive one.

This episode is not about comparing but about achieving more successfully with the right support and encouragement from your partner.

Having a supportive partner is not only about having someone celebrating your success with you when you succeed but also being there every step of the way. 

Tune in for some advice.
