013 Carrie Gunderson: Relationship and Parenting Hacks

In this Episode, Denise and Carrie Discuss:

  • How to create quality of life when married to a hard charging entrepreneur.
  • Why it’s important (and incredibly effective) to have a weekly couples’ meeting and use a meeting agenda like you would do for any important business meeting.
  • Being an excellent parent even as a busy entrepreneur (or spouse of one.)
  • The importance of having a family vision and having one spouse being responsible for holding that vision for the family.
  • How to spend quality time with your family and leave your work at the office.

Key Takeaways:

  • You should have a weekly meeting with your spouse and cover important communication items (like travel schedule, “honey-do list”, how to best support the kids’ activities that week, and more.)
  • Have regular date nights with your spouse like when you were first dating.
  • Involve your children in the weekly meetings.
  • Rate each other in each weekly meeting on how you are doing as a spouse and how you are doing as a parent. It can help keep each other accountable to putting the family as a priority.
