Q: 39 year old female here with a question for you Allana. I have been in love with my business partner since the day we met. He’s single but has always expressed that he only wants to be committed to his business and his career. We have been working side by side for 15 years now and we fight like an old married couple. There was one night where I thought we were gonna cross the line to something more but the phone rang and by the time he got back he was so frustrated from the call he just said “Good Night” and left. Nothing since. I never brought it up again but I always wondered what could have or would have been if that stupid phone hadn’t rang! I will be 40 next month. I don’t want to keep waiting and dreaming of what could be but I don’t want to destroy our working relationship either. Which one do I choose, business or pleasure?
A: My first answer is both, you can have it all! You are living a lie, a 15 year lie, and you are on the crest of the next phase of your life – living fulling, having it all: love and thriving business. The problem is if you keep doing what you are doing, it is going to be another 15 years, you are going to be 55 emailing me again asking what you should do. Let’s stop that cycle.
