One of the BIGGEST questions I get all the time is “How do you and Eddie work so well together?” Well let me tell you friend, working with your spouse isn’t all it’s made out to be.
From an outsider perspective, it may look like we have the perfect relationship; we own a successful business, we have 3 beautiful daughters and still manage to spend time doing the things that are important to us. However, there is A LOT behind the scenes that you all don’t see.
I’m here to tell you first hand that working with your spouse really TESTS you. Once you add the term “co-worker” to the mix things can get ugly real quick!
Don’t get me wrong, working with Eddie is amazing and he is the best business partner. Loving and sharing a life experience with your soulmate is one of the most amazing, magical experiences. BUT, there are times I want to kill him lol.
It takes SACRIFICE, COMPROMISE, PATIENCE and KINDNESS when working with your spouse.
And to be honest, you don’t understand how crucial those traits are until you're actually working with them. So choose wisely ladies 😂
Since working with Eddie since 2017, we have discovered so much more about each other than ever before.
We LEARNED how to appreciate one another on a much deeper level, how to communicate not only as business partners but as teammates throughout our marriage.
We learned each other’s LOVE LANGUAGE (yes, that’s a VERY REAL thing), but most importantly; we learned how to create the BALANCE between managing our business relationship along with our personal relationship.
And although finding this balance is the TOUGHEST part of working with your spouse, mismanaged expectations plays an even LARGER role in WHY you are frustrated with your partner.
So when working your spouse, keep those expectations in check ✔ and COMMUNICATE, COMMUNICATE, COMMUNICATE!
Communication is the BEST tips I can give you friend!
At the end of the day, no matter how CRAZY he drives me, having his SUPPORT, LOVE and KINDNESS throughout this journey is something I wouldn’t change for the world!

Until then happy Friday friend!
