We often hear of the entrepreneur who works 80-100 hour weeks and applaud their relentless work ethic only to look behind the curtain and see they lost their family along the way. Choose to bring your family along with your on your business journey. Share ideas at the dinner table and get feedback.
I cannot tell you how many times my kids put a “kibosh” to a tagline they though did not work as well as I thought hearing it come from my own mouth. Involve your family when you are considering new products or improving old ones. Ask your family to connect with their friends through social media for a quick survey. You want your family to cheer your success and not be envious of it– or worse quietly or loudly wish for your failure.
