“You two seem to make a great team.” Jason and I have heard this more than a few times. While we have only been working together in our businesses for a few years, we have made a pretty great team in our marriage for over 19 years so far. Long before I was officially a team member at Blumer CPAs or THRIVEal, I was involved as Jason’s unofficial coach when he needed to work through a decision.

I really enjoy working with my husband, but I get such a mixed reaction from others about whether or not they would want to work with their spouses. When I looked for other articles about couples working together, I also found a mixed set of results. One article basically said the quickest route to divorce is to work with your spouse. Others said that a huge percentage of small businesses are actually run by married couples.

I’m not afraid of dying. As a matter of fact, I’m tired and I could use the rest. I am afraid of dogs, and I’m afraid of swimming in large natural bodies of water. (Thanks for that one, mom. Jaws was a cinematic masterpiece, but maybe not the best film to show your third grader.) Although I’m not afraid of dying, I am acutely aware that time is running out, and I’ve got some $#&% to do.

Jason and I just interviewed Rick Telberg, the uber-cool veteran journalist of the accounting profession. At one point in the interview Rick killed me. He said, “Change is constant. You have to change. You change, or you die. By ‘die’ I mean that these guys simply run out the clock, go out of business, and make room for the next generation.” If that’s death, then I’m terrified of dying Rick Telberg style.
