#30: Married to an Entrepreneur with Mike Gaudet


This week, I’m joined by a really special guest. And it's actually my husband, Mike! 

I wanted to have a conversation about it's like to be partnered with someone who’s an entrepreneur when you’re not and what it takes in a relationship to make this life work. I don’t think enough people are talking about this from the spouse’s point of view. 

There’s always been this misconception that entrepreneurs lead such glamourous lives skipping down beaches and pulling in 6 or 7-figures. The reality is, it's so much more than that. It's really hard work, and it can take a toll on yourself and your family.
