Including Your Partner

Hello, my friend and future millionaire. 

You know, as I coach a lot of people, one of the things I started to realize was sometimes with a couple, you’ll see how one person is really excited about it and their spouse, not so much. 

It makes you wonder why that happens. 

Some of it may be because the spouse isn’t as tech savvy, so to speak, but some of it may be because their spouse has talked about doing big business stuff before, even tried numerous things, but it didn’t work out for them. 

That being said, I want this email to address how to tell if your spouse doesn’t feel like they’re on your team quite as much as they should be or, for lack of a better term, maybe they have a negative view of the plan.

One of the things you want to do is sit down and explain to them what you see, why you’re trying to build an online business, and the reason you’re making the adjustments that you’re making.

Back years ago, the first thing I ever did was get involved in the Amway business. 

For this discussion, put aside your opinion of that business, or Mary Kay, or whatever the network marketing business model is. 

Well, I was 22 years old at the time, and I thought I was going to be rich overnight and I told everybody about it, but it didn’t quite work out that way. 

First of all, I wasn’t mature enough to run that kind of business; I didn’t know how to do it. 

Now I could do that sort of thing as I have the appropriate education.

But what it comes down to is this:  maybe the reason your spouse feels that way is because you’ve made some other promises that didn’t quite work out the way you planned.

Here’s how you handle that. 

Be open and honest about everything because, as people are together for a few years and things move forward, you start to get into a comfort level about how your lifestyle and nobody likes unexpected change. 

What you’re doing now to build your online business is going to take some change; It’s going to take some effort. 

So what I want you to do is talk to your spouse about the dream that they want first.

Remember how I had you build a dream board? 

What would your partner like to see happen out of the first money you make? 

For example, do they want to take a thousand dollars and take the family somewhere for a weekend?

By putting their dream in front of them, and explaining that’s why you’re working to build this business,  it should help get them on board with your vision.

Now you can’t drag your feet; You’re going to have to put the work in. 

But if you’re in that situation, I understand what’s going on, and I’ve coached a lot of people that have dealt with that. 

You can overcome it.

You just have to be open with each other and you have to admit the mistakes you made in the past and be able to move forward. 

Everybody gets better every day as long as they’re making a conscious effort to do so. 

And that’s the effort we’re making here; that’s the stuff I’m teaching all of you in “The Million Dollar RoadMap to Wealth email series”
