Entrepreneurship doesn’t always lead to being a multi-millionaire, but if you play your cards right, it’s no secret that you could be well on your way to generating long-term wealth and income. And being an entrepreneur isn’t always a solo game; you and your partner can go into business together. But sometimes couples have a hard time getting on the same page when it comes to breaking into entrepreneurship, and getting into the right mindset together can be part of the struggle.
On today’s episode of The His & Her Money Show, entrepreneur Lamar Tyler of TrafficSalesAndProfit.com is here to talk with us about launching his businesses, and sharing how he and his wife Ronnie made the shift from corporate income to the total entrepreneur lifestyle. His experiences, tips, and tricks are invaluable tools to anybody thinking about making the change to working for themselves, whether you’re a couple or an individual.
Lamar has always been passionate about entrepreneurship since Day 1. He’d always been restless, never staying in one job for more than a year, and felt his unused ideas were being wasted. Finally, even while he and Ronnie were both working corporate jobs, there were bigger dreams being put into motion. Together they founded BlackAndMarriedWithKids.com in 2007, a blog created to inspire and encourage marriages in the African-American community, and when their online presence blew up, their success gave Lamar the confidence to step into entrepreneurship full-time. It took 10 years, a lot of hard work, and a major work/life balancing act, but now Lamar and Ronnie and working for themselves, and living for themselves, too!
