Running a business is never just about the business. Being a successful entrepreneur means finding balance between your personal and professional life.

But if you want your relationship to work, you need a partner who energizes you. Someone who helps you become the best version of yourself.

So, how does a real estate investor build a fulfilling family life? How do you successfully navigate marriage, parenthood and business?

On this episode of Financial Freedom with Real Estate Investing, Garrett sits down with me and my wife Vivian to find out what makes our 25-year marriage work.

Vivian and I explain why we struggled with working on the business together and how we set boundaries around work and family time.

Listen in to understand why we decided to homeschool our kids and learn how we set goals as a family to live intentionally, in alignment with our values!
