This arrangement doesn’t work for everyone, but it does work for us. And that’s what matters!
One of our weaknesses is that, because we are so passionate about what we do, we often put the business first.
You may not relate to that. But how about this one: Some couples struggle for “together time” because they put their kids first.
If we don’t take time to nurture our relationships, the strong foundation will crack and everything will crumble.
