Today, Ed and I are talking about one of the biggest stumbling blocks for any business person: Capacity. By that, I mean, the ACTUAL amount of time you have to do something with.
But, after working alongside my husband and seeing hundreds of business people through the PowerHouse and The Business League over the years, it is a problem men can suffer deeply from too. And so, when it comes to a couple’s capacity – throwing kids and the relationship time into the mix as well – things can get exacerbated and a little more complex.
The challenges we will discuss today were triggered by my conversation with Mr. and Mrs. UberKate: Kate Sutton and Adam Simpson who explained how their businesses have grown around what is best for their family. And more so, how they created their own roles and direction based on what they were actually willing to give to the business.
