What does Valentine’s Day look like for power couples? What do they even get each other?

This is a big dilemma for entrepreneur couples who are looking to celebrate the “heart” holiday. It is very easy for relationships to go on auto-pilot, especially for highly successful people. My wife Elena and I have kept our marriage working for 18 years while simultaneously building our businesses and raising two great kids. Here are a few tips we have used to keep the business and romance thriving.

A Valentine’s Day Gift that Lasts 

You know the traditional gifts for Cupid’s big day aren’t forever. The roses will wilt and you eat the chocolates. All those gestures are great, but they don’t last. However, both of you having a big goal will knock you out of the loop of the everyday grind. 

Big goals DO last. 

A great idea for power couples is to take that time to get on the same page about those huge targets. That will really get the fire going for success-driven partners. Another great thing is that you can do this in your own home.

No need to brave the crowded Valentine’s Day restaurant crowds. 

Power Couples Celebrate Year-Round

Elena and I know that making time for the relationship is important. On the other hand, that time can be hard to come by when you are fulfilling your various roles. To be honest with you, Valentine’s Day doesn’t always happen on February 14th for my wife and me. 

Our commitment to success requires that we take opportunities that fall on “special occasions.” That shows our dedication to the goal and gives us a competitive edge. That’s why we schedule regular time dedicated to our relationship on our terms. During that time, we acknowledge what the other person is doing right and show appreciation. You shouldn’t need a special day to do this nor should it hinder your chances to succeed. 

Valentine’s Day for power couples needs to be continually created and not boxed in to once a year. Average people do a romantic gesture for their partner once a year on a specific day and think they’ve done something. That’s why average relationships fail. You are a power couple. You show up to your relationship 110% while pushing each other to further greatness. 

Be Great Together.

  1. Awesome video and message. It’s important to check in with each other more often and make little improvements. And yes, at the end of the day, I have to improve me first.

  2. Be Great Together.
    With “Together” being the operative word. That is a great reminder to make sure I include my wife in all I do. Sometimes as an entrepreneur life can feel a little lonely, and I am grateful for a wife who loves me and put up with all the crazy adventures. Thank you Grant and Elena for leading the way!

  3. You completed a number of fine points there. I did a search on the topic and found a good number of people will have the same opinion with your blog.
