By Kira Albin Halpern
Are you and your spouse thinking about starting your own business but concerned about the strain it may put on your relationship and family?

Azriela Jaffe, author of Honey, I Want to Start My Own Business, offers the following indicators to predict how well you and your spouse will endure the challenges of entrepreneurship.
Score your relationship from 1 to 4 for each of the following questions.

    (1) That doesn't describe us at all.
    (2) That somewhat describes us.
    (3) That describes us most of the time.
    (4) That describes us completely.
1 2 3 4
1. We've thoroughly researched the business option we're considering and are prepared to handle the worst-case scenario.
2. We're flexible, creative and willing to make the changes necessary along the way to achieve success.
3. We're able to keep our eyes on the big picture: to maintain perspective when going through rough times.
4. Romance is a daily attitude, not just something we do on Valentine's Day. We understand that it's good for our business, as well as our relationship, to take good care of one another.
5. We share a joint vision when it comes to our personal, family and business goals. We are each willing to sacrifice personally in order to support each other's life dreams.
6. We approach conflict looking for a win/win solution. If we were to experience difficulty resolving differences, we wouldn't hesitate about getting outside support and professional advice well before our relationship hit a breaking point.
7. One or both of us was raised in an entrepreneurial family, so we're accustomed to the erratic income and schedule that comes with it.
