An entrepreneurial spirit can certainly be very attractive. Entrepreneurs think outside of the box, they don’t believe in limitations, they tend to be creative, they believe in themselves, and they have plans for an interesting life. When an entrepreneur is successful, it can mean complete freedom from a prison-like life stuck to a desk and trapped by small, incremental pay raises. For entrepreneurs, the sky is the limit! But, the path to the sky can be very challenging. Saying goodbye to the monotony and limitations of being a lifetime employee rather than being an employer also means saying goodbye to the routine, stability, reliability, and relative calmness of letting someone else take the lead. If you’re a man getting involved with an entrepreneur, know she’ll need a very particular type of support and understanding. So, here is what it really means to support your entrepreneurial partner.
Know she may work on vacations
Don’t become angry when she has to spend an hour on her laptop during vacation. Entrepreneurs are always working. But, it’s exactly her lifestyle that also allows her to travel on a weekday or work from home (and have lunch with you). So accept the ups and downs.
