Opening a business with your spouse as a partner is one of the most challenging things I’ve ever done. If not absolutely necessary, I don’t know that I would recommend it to anyone else! My husband and I are very close but so many things about starting our own business nearly brought us to blows. For example, there was a huge argument over the actual name of our business. Once that silly argument was worked out, there was a whole other issue over the http://www.domainnames.com we would purchase to put our website on. My husband just didn’t seem to understand exactly how crucial choosing a website was for the success of our business. After that came the design issues that we butted heads over, then of course, there was staffing. All in all, we are really happy we made the jump to entrepreneurial life but it certainly was not an easy journey! We are still married and still very much in love but this was the hardest thing either of us has ever been through in our lives.
