One of the the areas that I’ve had to work to become a better husband is my level of sensitivity and empathy to the NFO.
The road hasn’t always been easy, but it dawned on me today the process of starting my own business has actually, I think, accelerated the curve for me.
I think the demands on a service business to think about and understand the needs of a client base (and I’m far from perfect in that realm as well) have made “necessity the mother of invention” in a way.
Since the success of my business depends, in part, on developing these skills, it’s helped me in my personal life as well.
Of course, there’s always room for improvement ;-)
