Chapter 9 & 10 Readings from “Business Life of Husband & Wife” with Clint and Robyn

Welcome to Episode 125 & 126 of our podcast, where Clint and Robyn share insights from their book “Business Life of Husband & Wife.” In these special episodes, they dive into two crucial chapters that are essential for any couple running a business together.

Chapter 9: Separating Home from Work

In Chapter 9, entitled “Separating Home from Work,” Robyn delves into the importance of knowing when it’s time to work and when it’s time to transition to home for the day. This balance is vital for both the business and the relationship. Clint and Robyn emphasize the need for a clear divide between personal and business relationships, encapsulated in Clint’s rule: between 9:00 am and 5:00 pm, they are not friends—business comes first.

They share five key strategies to help maintain this balance:

  1. We acknowledge Turbulent Times
  2. We apologize for our mistakes
  3. We utilize our commute time to talk
  4. We work when there is work
  5. We learn from the past

Takeaways from Chapter 9 include:

  • Leave your baggage at the door.
  • Be present at home and be present at work.
  • Acknowledge, apologize, utilize, and learn.

Chapter 10: The Lifestyle Adjustment

Clint reads Chapter 10, “The Lifestyle Adjustment,” which provides a glimpse into a typical day in their life. After being in business for over 10 years, Clint and Robyn reflect on how their schedules have evolved and how much has changed, however Robyn still goes to bed at 9:00 pm – that is a constant!  They now use technology and scheduling tools more than ever before.

The chapter highlights the importance of adapting to change and being efficient with time. Despite the increased tasks, they have learned to develop a cohesive schedule and remain open to pivoting, when necessary, as long as it aligns with their business goals.

Takeaways from Chapter 10 include:

  • Learn to develop a cohesive schedule.
  • Always be open to change, ensuring it aligns with your business goals.
  • Do everything with intention.
