duckabell Posted November 5, 2011 Share Posted November 5, 2011 My husband recently started a business. It's something that he's always wanted to do and the opportunity presented itself -- not particularly in the timing and way we envisioned, but we feel it's right for us to do this now. He's now a freelancer/consultant and is gaining clients with contacts he has in his industry. He hopes to one day offer products along with his services, but right now he will be primarily a service provider. My questions are for those whose husbands have started a business or who co-own a business with their spouse. How do you support them and fulfill all of your other roles as well? How involved are you with the business? Do you help with bookkeeping or in other aspects of the business and if so are you a partner or employee of the business? How do you handle the ups and downs and at times financial insecurity? Is homeschooling easier or harder because of owning your own business? I think those are my questions right now but if anyone had any other insights or advice that would help as well. I'm really excited for my husband and our family at this time and I know he will do well. I just want to make sure that I'm helping him and supporting him even though at times I'm a bit overwhelmed with the whole situation. In the end, I know it will all work out.
