Never be ashamed of having a partner who believes in youDec 22, 2020
Ironically this piece was published on CNBC on February 26, 2020, my birthday, and it felt like the worst present in the world.
The title alone made me feel totally embarrassed:
My partner earned three times my salary—here’s how we made it work
I had no idea that this was an angle they were going to take when I walked into NBC studios in New York City in January [btw that feels like a lifetime ago].
When I saw it, I didn't know what to make of it. While it was technically true at the time, I felt it totally discounted my entrepreneurship journey, and the times before when I had supported his career shifts as well.
But as I thought more about it, I realized I had NOTHING to be ashamed of. I have a husband who has always supported my goals, and had faith [more than I had in myself], that I was going to be successful. I'm so grateful he was willing to give me the time and space to figure out how.
It turns out AJ was right -- this month I surpassed his income for the first time since I went full-time into Crush Your Money Goals.
The moral of the story? They unwittingly gave me this gift of gratitude: never be ashamed of having a partner who believes in you.
