Many couples dream of starting their own business when they relocate - it's all part of the exciting vision for a new life. However, once they make the move and set up the business, they come to realise that it brings its fair share of long hours and stress. That leaves very little time to get out and truly enjoy their new life.
Couples tell me: "We were so excited about starting our business. But now we're so busy earning a living that we never get to enjoy it! Life wasn't meant to be this way. We're always arguing and getting caught up in resentment and bickering."
Being thrown together everyday, and possibly having to navigate each other’s different approaches to managing a business can cause a lot of stress. The clash of perspectives and styles often leads to conflicts and challenges that you may have never anticipated.
