How to Maintain a Healthy Marriage as an Entrepreneur

” A lot of us are building wealth that will rust and rot… You want your marriage and you want your children to thrive. Most business owners take a long time to realize that no matter how well your business does, you won’t feel like you’re thriving individually if your marriage and kids aren’t thriving..”

 — John Crosby

As an entrepreneur, do you find it difficult to balance your marriage, personal, and professional lives?

Entrepreneurship gives you countless responsibilities, pulls you in many different directions, and blurs the line between work life and personal life… especially during the busy season! But that doesn’t mean you can’t be a successful business owner AND have a thriving personal life, including a healthy marriage.

Today, we’re speaking with John Crosby, an author, leadership coach, and Executive Director of Priority Insight, a company equipping and challenging leaders to put God first in life and leadership. As a former pastor and current business mental health coach, John has incredibly valuable insights on navigating marriage and entrepreneurship and creating a healthy, bountiful life.

“When we really look at how we live our lives, it’s as if our life is a subset of our business rather than the business being a subset of our lives.” — John Crosby Click To Tweet

Are you looking for actionable tips to successfully navigate the business challenges you face as a tradesperson along the way? This podcast is definitely for you. 

In this episode we discuss:

  • How to maintain a healthy marriage while owning and growing a business
  • Tips and advice on working with your spouse/partner
  • Creating boundaries between work and home life

John Crosby says, spending 30-60 minutes of daily quality time with your partner/spouse can do wonders not just for your marriage but for your business too.

[28:36-29:30] ”The 30-60 minutes with Jo, that’s just, I’m gonna give her my full, undivided attention every single day for 30-60 minutes. And what I’ve found is… when we go on vacation, we’re starting from a positive place… connection gives rise to connection, the more connected you are, the more you want to connect,” says John Crosby.

[35:41-36:42] John Crosby talks about the 3 Keys to Unlocking Success in Entrepreneurship:

  • Motivation, 
  • Procrastination, and 
  • Prioritization

Why it’s impossible to “balance work life and marriage”

[46:41-47:37] “I don’t use the word balance because the word balance does imply equal amounts of time or equal weight and the reality is most of us in this world are going to spend more time at work, but we know, in terms of importance, our family is more important… It’s more a matter of alignment,” says John.
