Handing Marriage Challenges While Your Business Grows with Veronica Cisneros

A Purpose Driven Mom Podcast

Episode 354

Are you a high-achieving woman who struggles to balance your business and marriage? Are you struggling to be understood in your marriage? Do you feel like you’re sacrificing your sleep and personal goals to keep everything together? If so, you’re not alone.

In this episode of the Purpose Driven Mom Show, Cara interviews Veronica Cisneros, a licensed family and marriage therapist who specializes in helping women stay married while running a successful business.

The most valuable lesson from this episode is the importance of open and honest communication with your partner, being confident in who you are and what you want, and setting boundaries.

Veronica shares her experience of transitioning from being a stay-at-home mom to running her own private practice and the impact it had on her marriage. Cara and Veronica talk about the grieving process and the tug-of-war that can happen when a partner is uncomfortable with the changes brought on by a successful business.

They also talked about the high divorce rate among high-achieving women and the importance of having the skills to navigate the transition and have difficult conversations with a partner.
