235: How to Balance Marriage and Business, with Robert and Kay Lee Fukui


What does it look like to partner well in both marriage AND business? In this week’s episode, I’m thrilled to welcome authors and coaches Robert and Kay Lee Fukui as we talk about how to find a healthy balance as married entrepreneurs.


We talk about:

  • How a weekly meeting helps with communication so you stay on the same page
  • Why it’s important to have blocks of time when you don’t talk about work
  • How to place bookends on your workday so business doesn’t take over your relationship
  • How to engage in healthy conflict not only as spouses, but as business partners (and why conflict is a good thing!)


We also talk about some tangible practices Robert and Kay Lee use in their everyday life to stay connected and focus on what truly matters. I got so much out of this conversation, and I know their wisdom and example will inspire you as well!
