How Much Of Your Biz Is His Business?

by Cherry Norris on February 17, 2016

One of the most asked questions I receive is just how much about your business do you share with a new man …

Especially if you're a respected CEO or run your own company.

When he asks about work, what do you say?

What does he find if he googles you on line?

And for heaven's sake, what do you do when a man starts pokin' in your biz and you want to keep the romance alive and kickin'?

Today's video gives you a fun, fail-proof tip on how to handle the delicate topic of sharing your biz with a man while keeping the romance aflame.

If your job is impressive or you run your own biz, you don't want to risk turning him into a fan … instead of your man!

Please leave me a comment below and tell me how you respond when a man wants to know about your work.

Thanks so much for tuning in.  Enjoy!

Hi Cherry,

Thanks for the information. Less is more.

Hi cherry – another great video!
I was wondering – if I've been dating a man awhile (6 mo. or more) and he;s been
telling me about his business  at what point can I also get support for what I'm doing.  I would like my man to be proud of me and my accomplishments within a year dating.  Is that possible in the feminine energy or does it mean I'm a masculine woman who needs a beta man?

Cherry,  what great advicem and advice I needed to hear! I needed the reminder that it's not about me proving I'm worthy. It's about me being a supportive listener while he proves his!

Thanks for today's video Cherry.  It was a REAL eye opener.  I have a very successful career, but I just came to the startling conclusion that I try to compete with my dates by one upping them!   My competitive nature, while an excellent asset in the business world, is killing my relationships!!!  I think I'll practice "shutting up" about  my career while I get to know the guys I am meeting online. Thanks again for your help Cherry and keep up the good work!

Love your videos and advice..I have a question about my business..I dont have a job or business I am disabled , so what do I say when he askes what do you do for  a living..awkward silence..I feel like if I shared that with him he to soon he would run for the hills..or judge me because I dont look disabled .What I do share instead is what my passions are and what I would like to do at some time later if i get better.. How soon should i share my disability?

 i feel it is true.                                                                                                 when do you let a msn know your  life 's  personal,        7 make  him a intimate partner /

Is it ok to not give a man my last name?  Once he knows that, he can google and see all about my business.  I guess even then I can do as you say and just answer his questions directly  and then get on to other topics.

You got it, Theresa!

Thanks, Cherry.  It's important to know when not to blow your own whistle….and not so easy when you are identified with your work.  It sounds right, though!


Cherry Norris April 18, 2014 at 3:50 pm

That’s right Ziji!

Cherry, you are so spot on. I have made this mistake many times because I just didn't know what to say. It felt uncomfortable so I knew it wasn't the best thing to be doing, but I didn't know how to handle the situation–until now.
Thank you so much for your Q&A sessions. I love your perspective. It is changing my life and I'm finally having fun!

very challenging to me..
1. i like what i do.. very various, very full and very demanding  and i like to share my successes… i like to get the other his impression and feedback… that should not be part of our discussion at all?
2. and also, do not know why  being respectful kills the romance…
may be do not know how to keep that romance at all…
please help more on both topics!

Cherry, I hate to admit it but I think you are really on to something here.  Thank you so much for having the courage to confront us alpha-women who have so become overachievers for one reason or another.  Yes, we are all single for a reason.  We've forgotten a lot of the basics … like "respecting men" …  Your Friday videos are a delight.  I find them challenging but intriging.

Most of the guys my age are retired.  I plan to work  into the future because it's my only income.  What do you do when you are the one working (in a job you are passionate about)  and the guy you are dating is trying to figure out what he wants to do in retirement.  Is this when older women like myself have to seek out younger men, or only men who are still working?
This is a dilemma.

How does respecting each other kill the romance?


Ginell September 7, 2012 at 4:18 pm

Because as femenine women we're supposed to be cherished for our feelings!
