41: How Your Core Values Impact Your Marriage and Business

What is the number one thing that impacts your marriage and business that most people don’t talk about? Your values.

That’s right, they are your true north and the foundation for how you conduct yourself in business and marriage.

We all experience conflict in marriage, but if your value systems are total opposites, you’re going to struggle. 

I don’t think we talk about this enough, which is why this episode is so important. I’m talking about how your values show up in your everyday life and sharing an exercise that you can use to discover your top values as well as those of your spouse and staff.
