If you had asked me about 3 years ago, I would’ve told you that working with your spouse is bound to fail. I was a skeptic to pursuing business with your spouse simply because I had no idea how to begin navigating the idea.
I remember the day that Elias asked me if I would every consider starting a business together and I honestly thought he was joking… Now in the present, I’m glad I took the chance, even if it meant failing a few times before we got it right.

Goals allow us to build our relationship in ways that challenge and strengthen our love. It is the roadblocks and hurdles that really challenge and strengthen us. It is during these moments when your goals and convictions become a list of motivators… Reasons why working 60+ hour weeks, declining an invitation to go out, de-escalating a petty argument, and more challenges are all worth it.

I felt like we got the most value from Day 5:
