It’s a Family Affair

“Life is about growth and exploration, not achieving a fixed state of balance. You have a limited time on earth to experience all you can. Figuring out how to squeeze the most out of your family, work and spiritually in your life’s purpose. Go do it!”Mel Robbins

The Sole Practitioner is their own Boss.

There is no one else to answer to. If married, your spouse will become a “silent partner” in your Practice. Sole Practice is not just a job, but rather a lifestyle. Living the lifestyle of the Sole Architect Practice requires he/she always keep it in perspective in regard to family, friends and clients.

It is advantageous for the Sole Practitioner if the spouse works outside the home. The spouse can provide a Health Care Plan for the family through their employer. The employer provided Health Care Plan will be less expensive than a singular, family plan. By having an employer provided Health Care, the Sole Architect is allowed a certain sense of “Peace of Mind.”

Make the effort to involve your family in your work.

Take the family to visit projects under construction. Buy the children their own hard hats and dress them up with their favorite stickers. The family can provide unique insight into your projects. Personally, my youngest daughter enjoyed the Field Trips so much that she attended Architecture School and is working her way towards licensure. Be open to your family’s views and thoughts about your work. You will be amazed at how they can see things that you may have missed.
