Have you ever wondered what it would be like to work with your spouse? 

Owning a business is hard enough – then throwing it into your marriage complicates things.

But it is absolutely doable!

And to prove that, joining me today is my husband of 18 years, Chris, along with our amazing friends, Steve and Katesha Weaver.

Steve and Katesha have been together for 17 years. They have owned their current company, The Candle Lab for the past 11 years. They have seven retail stores, 27 licensed franchise stores, and more than 60 employees.

Today’s discussion is dedicated to learning how we all can succeed in this unique work-life partnership. 

In this episode, you will hear:

  • How it’s like jumping from a status quo into the unknown
  • The pros and cons of working with your spouse
  • How to transition smoothly and when to know it’s time to stop scaling your business
  • How to achieve work-life balance and deal with disagreements
  • Some common pitfalls to avoid
  • What to do when your spouse isn’t ready to take a leap yet
  • How to keep going when times are hard
