1 Couplepreneurs in Business: Serial Entrepreneur Melinda Wittstock on Balancing the Love of Business with the Business of Love
Melinda Wittstock is a serial entrepreneur who’s built four businesses to 6, 7 and 8-figure success – and a podcast host of the acclaimed Wings of Inspired Business featuring top female founders. She shares today what inspired her to launch her second podcast about entrepreneurial couples or “couplepreneurs” – and what it takes to succeed together in business, in parenting and in love.
The entrepreneurial journey is like no other.
Exhilarating. Exciting. Testing. Sometimes terrifying. It’s rewarding and it can be devastating. All in the same hour!
Because I know firsthand: To be an entrepreneur is a singular obsession. Even when you’re relaxing … at yoga … meditating … unwinding … there is always a “macro” running in your brain … about closing that deal, getting that funnel to convert, hiring that new employee, developing that new product, hitting your numbers…
So what’s it like to be married … to your business … and each other?
10XTogether is a new podcast about the love of business – and the business of love.
On this first episode host Melinda Wittstock shares her mission – and her own theory about what it takes to succeed together as a “couplepreneur”.
- Show up 100% for each other and play all in
- Avoid blame, judgment and resentment
- Want the other to shine as bright as can be without feeling threatened
- Have a great laugh, even when the s%^# is hitting the fan
- Build a relationship in love and business based on respect
- And so much more!
Each week Melinda will share a new interview with a top performing entrepreneurial couple – who are either in business together or run separate businesses.
