“By their nature, empire builders are obsessives who focus relentlessly on their careers. They feel they have a mission to create. And something in life normally has to give. That means a partner must be accommodating: willing to sacrifice almost everything for the business and willing to put up with the ego of their ambitious other half.”
One creates to fulfill a life, sometimes the creation process destroys the very life one hopes to fulfill. A Pam Tillis song explains an entrepreneur’s relationship quite well “If you are coming with me, you need nerves of steel, because I take corners on two wheels”
Life is always on edge for the entrepreneur and spouse!
