#6. My Wife isn’t Interested. That’s Okay
My wife finds marginal interest in Words Kraft. The subtle complexities and competitions associated with a business don’t really excite her. And that’s okay. As human beings, we have our individual triggers. My wife is a dedicated homemaker. She loves cooking and experimenting with recipes. Which is great if the family has a knack for pampering their taste-buds more than often. And my wife probably is the reason why I can diligently focus on Words Kraft. Without having to worry about anything back at home. Household chores are tiring. Especially when your two years toddler is exceptionally naughty and fidgety. So her lack of direct interest in Words Kraft or its functioning is fine. She might not be a part of the show, but she definitely is a key facilitator.
A business still in its sapling stages need a mammoth amount of dedication and effort. That leaves you with very less leisure time. Especially when you are juggling two very different professions in parallel. A supportive family, therefore, plays a crucial role. The cushioning element is essential. My wife, in particular, is that cushion. Taking care of things so that I could focus. She is strong, responsible and efficient in her role. She could defend you ferociously in street altercations. She could cook a delicious dinner once you return after a hard day at the office. I call that versatility and a handful of people have that.
Yes, there’s no denying the fact that every relationship goes through periods of tractions and strains. We had our share of downtimes too. But, overall things have been better. Much better than many other families.
