I recently quit my job and became a full-time entrepreneur! As exciting as it is, I feel super blessed to have the support of my partner. When I first told him that I planned on quitting my job, he was shocked because for him, The Goal Standard was just a hobby and something I did for fulfillment! But it didn’t take long before it was fully on-board, and I’m super happy to have him as a support system throughout this entire journey.
A lot of us are looking forward to full-time entrepreneurship, and having the ‘talk’ with your partner about your dreams is one of the first steps that we should take. Having a supportive partner as a creative or a dreamer is super important, and they honestly don’t get enough credit! That’s why I’m shining a light on their contribution to our success. We’re talking about what it’s like to be the one with the steady income and having to be the backbone and support for a creative who’s forging a new path.
Even if you’re not going into entrepreneurship, but you want to go back to school, taking a lower-paying job, you’ll still get a lot from this episode. Our partners and family members are the ones that are supporting us, and it’s important to see things from their perspective.

A look at what it’s like to be the partner with the steady income and the struggles they face.
What it’s like being in a relationship with a creative
The best way to communicate our goals and dreams, and what we need
How to make sure you’re still working as a team
