Families and friends can pay a huge price when a loved one chooses to launch a new business. When that decision is made in a vacuum, without input from loved ones, it can lead to destroyed marriages and relationships.

Ephesians 5:25 teaches, “Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ also loved the church and gave Himself up for her.”

There are times you may need to sacrifice your personal ambitions for the sake of your family.
