What You'll Learn In Today's Episode:

  • Spending more time with family without being on the same page can feel like a curse. It is important to make family time enjoyable and incorporate play to create a bonding experience.
  • A supportive spouse is an entrepreneur’s greatest asset. They provide increased confidence, clarity, and a different perspective that can lead to better decision-making and success.
  • Measuring productivity and treating a spouse like an employee can lead to the loss of their magic and emotional connection. Recognizing and appreciating the emotional components that contribute to a healthy relationship is important.
  • Unhealthy alpha traits, such as Machiavellianism and a focus on annihilating threats, can create a survival mode environment that hinders productivity and growth. Shifting towards a healthy alpha mindset fosters collaboration, creativity, and solution-focused thinking.
  • Breadcrumbs to the muse, such as open drawers or untidy spaces, indicate a relaxed and happy spouse. Recognizing these breadcrumbs can lead to a more enjoyable and fulfilling relationship.

In this episode, Matthew is joined by author and coach, Kelly Clements about the challenges faced by entrepreneurs in maintaining a healthy work-life balance and nurturing their relationships. Kelly shares her personal experiences as an entrepreneur and partner, highlighting the importance of play and shared activities in strengthening relationships. She emphasizes the need for entrepreneurs to view their family as their greatest asset and to avoid treating their spouse as an employee. Kelly also discusses the concept of the unhealthy alpha and provides insights on how to identify and shift away from unhealthy alpha traits, as well as the term breadcrumbs to the muse and how they can enhance relationships.
