How to Help Your Relationship Survive the Startup Life // BUSINESS 11

Tuesday, October 18th from 6:00 - 8:00 pm


When you're working 24/7 at a startup, it can take a real toll on your love life. This October at GA, couples and family therapist Esther Perel and life coach Ann Mehl will tackle your toughest relationship questions, grappling with the obstacles and anxieties that arise when our quest for secure love conflicts with our pursuit of passion in business.

Topics include: 

  • Partners in life & partners in business: How do you make it work? 
  • When your start-up business is all-consuming, how do you create a healthy separation between your work life and your home life?
  • What are ways working couples can foster resilience to navigate the multiple layers of their relationship?
  • Why do romance and great sex so often fade for couples who claim to love each other as much as ever?
  • How do we negotiate the dual needs for connection and autonomy?
  • How do you rekindle the spark?
  • What are ways you can assure your relationship not only survives, but feels alive?

Come with all your concerns about finding balance, and leave with plenty of actionable tips for maintaining a happy home life while working on your startup.
