entertainment industry coach question 613: My husband isn’t making enough money but I want to be supportive. Help!
Yuck! This one's a doozy...
I'm no marriage counselor, and lord knows relationship coaching is not my forte, what I would say is the best way to be supportive is to communicate with your husband. If he is the sole provider and he's not providing, what does that mean? Can you take on a job? Can he take on a job? How long has he been pursuing this?
What I would advise is that you read my blogs from the beginning ( I know there are 612 of them, you don't have to read them all). Or read my book, so you can have a better understanding about the nature of our industry, the tools he could be using and may not know it, and the mindset of a passionate artist/craftsman/technician.
I think it's amazing that you reached out to me, that you even know about me... your husband is lucky to have a wife who wants him to succeed. Feel free to send me more questions about the industry as they come up for you.
