Is it really even possible to balance business and love?

In a world that wants us to think we can’t have it all, I refuse to believe we have to choose between having money and having a honey. Judging from social media and reality TV, you wouldn’t believe it was possible to be happily married at all. Add running a business to the mix and it sounds like a recipe for disaster.

So we took to the streets to find women who have it all to find out how they manage it all. They were eager to share the secrets that help them balance business and love. Each month, we’re sharing a new perspective from a new wife.

Meet Mrs. CEO: Jessica Taylor Creator of HappilyMarriedWives.com

Do you believe there is a thing called balance when it comes to your role as a wife, mother and entrepreneur?
Absolutely! My family comes first. I live by this model: God. Family. Career. I believe that a lot of families suffer because of this very thing. I am not so desperate chasing success, that I neglect my family.

Do you involve your spouse in your business? If so, how?
I do. Well, I actually sort of kinda dragged him into it [laughs]. He handles the majority of finances making sure that everything runs smoothly and efficiently.

Do you believe you have to take off the boss hat when you come home or is there a place for it in your household?Yes. When I come home, I am just “Mama” and “Babe.” I normally work on things for my business when everyone is sleeping. Does that mean I may lose out on potential business deals, yes. And I am perfectly fine with that. As a mother of a pre-teen daughter, I have to be involved.

Is your spouse a business owner as well? If so, does it help or hurt to have two entrepreneurs in the home?
If you ask him, he will say these are “our” businesses. But I run the businesses.

Share one piece of advice for any woman who wants to follow her dreams and her heart.
I would say to that woman who wants to follow her dreams and her heart, to just do it! If you are going to fail, fail forward! You will never know what could happen if you don’t step out on faith. And above all, stay away from dream killers!!! Never take advice from someone that does not have an entrepreneurial mindset.

    Six months ago,after i lost my previous job , I was lucky to find out about this superb company online that was a life saver for me… They offer online jobs for people to freelance from their homes. Last paycheck after working with themfor threemonths was $12k… Great thing about it was that only requirement for this job is basic typing and connection to the internet… http://korta.nu/NDe

    Way to think outside the box and create your own niche on your own terms.
