Dating is like interviewing possible candidates to be your partner. In the process you are going to learn what you do want and what you don’t want. Having been married and now dating, I have come to the conclusion that entrepreneurs are on a different frequency than many people.
In this episode we will cover:
- Things I am learning from dating.
- Realizing what I want in a partner
- Mindsets and Expectations

Andrea: [00:01:36] Hello there. Welcome back to another episode of the Legalpreneur podcast. I’m having a very interesting take on today’s episode and it’s going to be about dating as an entrepreneur because we all know your girlfriend is single as a Pringle, and I’ve actually had a number of conversations with other entrepreneurs and their dating life, and I’ve actually had conversations with people that are married and entrepreneurs. We’re going to have this conversation today, and I’m really excited because as an entrepreneur that is single, as a Pringle, this is something that I am dealing with. Oh, man. So I want to say, first of all, as an entrepreneur, I truly believe you need somebody on your frequency. I don’t want to say on your level because I don’t want anybody to think like if you’re not an entrepreneur or I’m saying you’re at a lower level or a different level, I think it’s all about frequencies when you are an entrepreneur. You tend to be an achiever, maybe an overachiever, and you want more and more and more, but you also probably need a partner that supports you at the same frequency. We know that I was married and I did not have the partner that was extremely supportive of me and my goals and my dreams. And I think it all comes down to having a different mindset. So if you are dating and you’re an entrepreneur or if you are in a marriage. And you’re an entrepreneur I would love to hear your experience. I would love to hear about your significant other, how they’re supportive of you. If they are supportive, are they an entrepreneur? Are they not like I want to hear from you seriously. Like, please reach out on the gram. Let me know because I want to hear your personal stories. But I’m going to go through I’m going to kind of explain what I’ve been experiencing myself and what I’ve been hearing from other people that I’ve had these conversations with. So what it comes down to for me. So I’ve been dating. Definitely had like the whole situation ship thing for like a year and a half. And he was an entrepreneur. He was very supportive of the entrepreneur lifestyle. He had a very different mindset than my ex husband, which is what I admired. And and I didn’t know how much that would affect things. So, like, he was the only guy I really dated for a year and a half after I left my ex and that since then I’ve been dating more and, and I want to talk about this now because I’m learning more now that I’m dating somebody else or other people. And it really comes down to the mindset. And I think entrepreneurs just have a different mindset. And I mean, I know they do, but for me. When I’m dating. And essentially, I hate to say this, but essentially interviewing for my next partner, that’s what it is.
Andrea: [00:04:56] That’s what dating is, I’ve learned. That there are things that I don’t want in. And that’s what dating is. I know, but. I don’t want the. 9 to 5 limited mindset entrepreneurs truly do have an abundance mindset, and if you are a business owner or an entrepreneur and you don’t have an abundance mindset, maybe that’s something you need to work on for business. Maybe that’s something that’s holding you back because what I’m learning. So with my I don’t even want to call them an X because we were never officially together. But with the last guy I was dating. There was no limit for anything. We both always knew that we could just make more money and we both like if we would go to the Astros game. We knew like, Hey, we’re going to find the best seats available. We’re not going to pay to sit on the second or third level where we want the best of the best. And I think that just speaks volumes for where are you in life? What do you expect? Like, I want to experience the finer things in life and I want somebody who wants that as well. So the new guy that I’m dating. He’s great. He’s very nice. He’s awesome, very sweet. However, he doesn’t have that mindset. He I’ve noticed things. He’s like, Oh, well, that’s a really big bill like. Be careful with this.
Andrea: [00:06:23] I don’t want somebody that like he was not saying it as like watch how you spend your money. It was very much like, wow, that’s a very high bill. I think he almost was like taken aback that I had this bill that was so big. And it’s just little comments like that where I’m like, Wow, he really is limited in his mindset and. I’m only sharing this with. You the listener, because I think in my marriage for a very long time. I didn’t realize that I was in this limited mindset because of my husband. I didn’t realize it because I didn’t know there was anything different. Now that I’m have dated different guys, I’m learning about these different mindsets and who has what mindset. Where does this come from? Where does that come from? So all of this is going to eventually lead up to my ideal partner who has this abundant mindset, who wants this long term relationship, who wants the commitment and everything. But until then, I’m just going to be shopping around and doing a lot of interviews to really narrow down exactly what I want and. If you are out there dating and you’re trying to figure out what you want, like just date around, be in relation with other people, spend time with other people and get to know other people. That way you can learn what you do and don’t want. I think this is so important, especially as an entrepreneur that is building an empire myself.
Andrea: [00:07:57] I do desire to have a partner and I will say one thing as well. Living with my parents has been really nice and my dad has taken great care of me. Not like, Oh Dad, take care of me like I need somebody to take care of me. But feeling his support and feeling like taking care of. While being there at my parent’s house has been amazing for me. And it’s honestly. Helping me learn more about what I want in a partner, because I see the way that my dad takes care of my mom. I’m like, oh my gosh. Like, yes, that’s what I want in a partner. Or That’s not what I want in a partner. That’s not what I want in a relationship. This is what I want in a relationship. So I just wanted to really just come on here and share my experience. As of lately, dating as an entrepreneur and just relationships while being an entrepreneur, you really just need somebody, I think. I mean, for me personally and I just want to share it with you in case it resonates that. We want to feel supported. And for me personally, I’m like, if I’m not going to feel supported, I’d rather just be alone and support myself. Some days I’m just like, Damn, I wish I had somebody to support me. Like, there are some days where I’m like, Gosh, I just wish I had like one person to vent to.
Andrea: [00:09:23] That wasn’t just Kayla, because I know Kayla gets tired of hearing me vent. Poor Kayla. Kayla is going to be so probably lonely and bored when I find my person because I’m not going to have all these crazy stories to tell her. But until then, she’s still going to be entertained with my dating life. I should have like a Dating Life podcast and just talk about the stories that I tell Kayla because it would be one for the books. But anyways, that’s not going to happen right now, so let me know. Reach out. I want to hear about your relationship as an entrepreneur. I would love to hear like, are you single? Have you dated entrepreneurs? Are you with someone? Are they an entrepreneur? Are they not an entrepreneur? Do you feel supported? I would like seriously, I want to hear all about your experiences. Please share them with me and maybe I’ll share some stories on the next podcast about it. All right, you guys, I will see y’all next week or you’ll hear from me next week. On the podcast.
