Will Your Relationship Take Care of Itself?

I recently asked our private Whole Life Entrepreneurship group in which area they tended to spend the most time, money, and energy: professional development, personal development, or relationship development.  It seems most of us tend to put a lot into our work and...

Our First Virtual Summit

Wow. Just... wow. I cannot even believe that this is my life! Adam and I both feel so blessed to have had our lives touched by each and every one of the speakers on this summit.  Colin Morgan gave us a glimpse at what it looks like to live our lives with the...

Community Purge

I talk a lot about community.  I write about it in my book, on the blog, and Adam and I focus a lot on it within our WLE methodology.  I wonder though if we could still use some clarification on this very important component of our 3C’s- COMMUNITY.   When I say...

Communication

Early on one of the big things that caused me grief in my family and marriage was communication, or lack thereof. Paul J. Meyer said, “Communication- the human connection- is the key to personal and career success.” It seems like such a simple thing, communication....

Goals

The “cool kids” of this day and age like to post Instagram pictures of what appear to be perfect couples with the caption #relationshipgoals. In reality they’re just fabrications of what they want people to think their actual lives look like. News flash- there’s no...

Values

When we think of values we think of personal standards or principles. I’d love to take it one step further and think of our values as something OF value, because they are just that important. Our values are going to dictate who we are on our way to getting what we...

Vision

One of Adam’s favorite ways to start a conversation with someone is by asking, “What do you want to be when you grow up?” Have you asked yourself this question lately? I’ll be honest. It always throws me off; I hardly know what I’m doing tomorrow. The grown up I...

Vision, Values & Goals

When a family is formed, it is a blending of two sets of everything: personalities, upbringings, experiences, values, traditions, work ethics, role assignments, hopes and dreams.  All of this is combined with differing views on how to make a home, how to raise kids,...

Power Struggles

The deeper Adam and I get into developing the WLE methodology - examining conflicts of our past, and entering new conflicts as we learn to work together on this joint venture - the more I am seeing the POWER STRUGGLES that have woven their way through so many areas of...

Scared

We are at the final piece of this series, but I believe it’s the most important one.    Both the entrepreneur and their life partner feel three common emotions for different reasons.  Together they make up A.S.S.: ALONE, STRESSED, and SCARED. The funny thing is that...

Stressed

The next part of our A.S.S. acronym is S for STRESSED.  The Anderson family is a turbo family.  That means we have about a million things going on at any moment. The kids are really active, Adam tends to have several business ventures spinning at one time, and he and...

What Has Business Cost Me?

What has it cost me as the spouse of a business owner? Well, it’s certainly complicated some things. Today we were at a soccer game for my son. We played against a team who’s coach is the husband of my best friend from college. Actually I’ve known her since the fifth...

So You Think You Know Me

I am not the woman my husband married. And he is not the man I married either. I used to think that when you found THE ONE that they would just “get” you and you’d live happily ever after, forever in sync. In reality, everyone spends the first few years of marriage...

Finances – Keeping it Real

And by keeping it real I mean REAL SIMPLE. I AM NO FINANCE EXPERT! I’m actually pretty terrible with money and most of you would be appalled by my Amazon Prime history. It’s a little embarrassing. I’m not going to give you advice on how to run your finances, because I...

Parenting 101

I am the best mother ever! Just kidding. I have no idea what I’m doing. Neither does Adam. But we made these tiny miniature versions of ourselves and the hospital sent them home with us and never asked for them back! Now, we face the same challenges that all parents...

Bangkok

Wow. What a trip this has been to Bangkok, Thailand! Specifically, I want to touch on my experience with the DCBKK. The Dynamite Circle is a community of business and entrepreneur masterminds and thIis was their annual conference. I was given the opportunity to do a...

Obstacles

It’s easy to assume that relationships work or don’t work based on an input/output system. But, like so many things in life, it just ain’t that easy. Every couple and every family in every corner of the world has it’s own set of problems and each has to deal with...
