130: Achieving Work-Life Balance In Your Relationship

By Chase & Sarah Kosterlitz

Are you struggling to achieve a healthy work-life balance in your relationship? Do you feel like your partner is focusing more on work and less on you and the relationship? It's easy for our relationships to take a back seat to a busy job or a new business venture. There are only so many hours in a day, and much of the time is spent working. Don't let work ruin your relationship. Listen to today's show to find out the key tools to balance your work life with your romantic life.   In this episode we discuss relationship advice topics that include: How to manage your time between work and your relationship.  Creating weekly agreements to manage expectations and avoid conflicts.  How to be present with your spouse and forget about work while at home.  Setting boundaries on when to talk about work and when to 'keep it at the office'.  The importance of checking in with your partner and letting them know you care about their work, while not letting it overshadow the relationship.  Using shared calendars to help manage time, expectations and work-relationship balance.  Dorcas Cheng-Tozun is an award-winning writer and author of Start, Love, Repeat: How to Stay in Love with Your Entrepreneur in a Crazy Start-up World.
