Can Divorce Make Entrepreneurs Better Leaders?



A recent article in The Huffington Post offered examples of how some entrepreneurs used their divorce to become better leaders. In this article, we’ll share a few of the stories from that article.

Former Broadway Actor Turned Company Founder

When Tim left his acting career, he founded a sales outsourcing company. The demands of the job were not ones that could be easily left aside, and were definitely having a negative impact on his marriage.

After divorcing his wife of 16 years, he continued to run his company because he could never turn off the constant attention it required.

Today, Tim’s business is running strong. It’s been around for 20 years and employs more than 30 executives.

Founder of Tesla Motors

Elon Musk has been divorced numerous times – including twice since 2010. Rather than wallowing, Musk threw himself into his work. Because he was able to capitalize from the Volkswagen emissions scandal, profits for Tesla are soaring.

Divorce hasn’t soured his interest in love one bit as he continues to try out new relationships.

Shark Tank Star

Lori Greiner of Shark Tank fame used to take care of every aspect of her company “For Your Ease Only.” This horrid work routine quickly exhausted her and put the fear of divorce in her mind.

She reacted by putting her husband, Daniel, on her company’s board. He’s now a vice president within the company, and shares duties with her.

Because they were both so scared about what impact the weight of work may have on their relationship, the two were able to react and make a positive change.
