Married to Reselling

Balancing Family Life With Your Online Business

Updated Edition

Working from home can be
hard – especially on your family

For many resellers, working from home is a dream come true. No more commuting to work in rush-hour traffic. No more horrible bosses not appreciating your work (or worse, taking credit for it all). No more annoying co-workers who suck away your time and energy.

With working from home, you’re finally your own boss. You get to set your own work hours, and for some of you, even work in your pajamas all day.

Stephen & Rebecca Smotherman

What could possibly go wrong? Plenty.

Does any of this look familiar?

  • My spouse thinks I’m wasting my time and that I should get a “real” job.
  • My husband wants to join the business, but how can I train him when I’m already so impatient with him?
  • I know my family should be my main priority, but how do I do that without neglecting my business?
  • How can a single parent find balance with her kids and with working at home?
  • My spouse and I already argue over money issues, won’t business finances make it even worse?
  • My husband doesn’t understand that I need to reinvest my profits. How can I get him to understand?
  • I want to spend more time with my kids. How can I get them involved in the business without making it a liability?
  • My husband wants nothing to do with my reselling business. How can I help him understand?

Is there a solution? 

We’ve all been there in some way or another. There are times at home when you need to be working, but your spouse or kids are demanding your attention. You don’t want to ignore them, but sometimes it could really interfere with the work that needs to get done.

And the opposite is true as well. Sometimes we can get so caught up in the life of a reseller that we begin to neglect the people we love most, who are often in the next room wondering when we’re going to take a break and spend some time with them.

Married to Reselling can help!

Testimonials from Online Sellers Like You:

When I first heard about Married to Reselling, I was a bit perplexed. A relationship book from the Full-Time FBA guy? But once I read the book I think fits really well with his area of expertise which is being a full-time reseller. Having recently transitioned to full-time, many of the concerns I had and the conversations we had as a family are covered in this book. When I first thought being a full-time reseller was a possibility I was a bit afraid to tell my wife. It seemed equivalent to saying I’m leaving the world of software to join the circus. This book is helping me realize when to turn off the reseller and the Facebook and be present with my family.

Brian Vienneau

Married to Reselling is an excellent book.  It covers many important topics for resellers (really any entrepreneur) to discuss with their spouse.  The scenarios in the book are very relatable because Stephen and Rebecca are sharing from their actual experiences.  No matter what your work/life situation is, this book will help you think through important topics and improve communication in your marriage.

Andy & Jane Cassinelli

When you are desperate to leave your J.O.B. – Amazon can be the ticket out. One of the highest hurdles you will climb over is the noise that comes from friends and family. Talking about business means talking about money. Stephen and Rebecca Smotherman share tips and real life examples for dealing with the intense money talks that are bound to happen. This book is a must read for every new Amazon seller.

Debra Conrad from Thrifting

Married to Reselling offers proven advice from two entrepreneurs who understand the challenges of sharing a business and a home at the same time. This insightful book covers everything from budgeting time and money to understanding risk and differing work styles. It even helps Amazon sellers teach their kids about entrepreneurship while helping the entire family work as a team!

Lesley Demond

I love the bonus video series. I have watched all 3 now. You have really given me some things to think about and ideas for new approaches with my family. My husband and I are both working for ourselves. His business is new. So there are and will be challenges. We are both also raising a 3 year old after having raised our children who are in their twenties and thirties. So I am finding myself trying to balance it all. Thanks for sharing.
