Why should more husbands and wives (or partners in life) team up and create businesses together? For us, it is essential. When you start a brand like this you must go all in to have it be successful. And most entrepreneurs will tell you that it’s hard to think about anything else. So, with both of us in it and always on the same page it makes it much easier to talk about the brand and brainstorm. It makes entrepreneurship a lot less lonely and a lot more fun!

We get the best out of our business when we work together, so being able to move on from an argument quickly is definitely key to staying productive.
