I recently had a discussion with a small business woman who left her husband who was a doctor for a warehouse foreman. Think about that. Now tell me if you are thinking this about the warehouse forman: “He must be packing, a hunk or super fine, or she is probably paying his way? Did that come to your mind?
Here is a secret for you; many professionals are struggling financially these days. They have huge student loans and many feel pressure to appear to live at a certain financial standard. For example, they must have an acceptable home in a classy area or car that’s appropriate to their title.
Guess what? She left this professional because she was tired of balling him out, paying his way and he did not have time to cultivate the relationship. He was in private practice and almost lost everything for them. Additionally, he was never around because he had to pick up additional work to meet payroll and pay office rent.
This warehouse foreman salary was actually just as much than her professional husband brought home because of loans and his goal of saving his medical practice. He had a better credit score too. Now can you believe that?
Here is the deal, professionals need and want love too and this not a put down. My goal is to make sure you are not overlooking individuals because of titles. Titles will NOT keep you warm, company or provide you financial peace of mind. It could provide the reverse.
Today’s Message:Check your requirements to what really matters.
Make sure that you look for a mate that can meet your needs and not your ego. When you think about it, too many with money or titles are just as miserable or their titles is not producing much due to their person al financial struggles. Pick traits that are long lasting and if they happens to be a professional doing well, that will be a plus but not the standard.
