Captivate + Convert Episode 072: Being An Entrepreneurial Couple

With Steven Cegelski

Quitting your 9-to-5 and launching your own biz can feel pretty scary. Doing it when your partner is ALSO running their own business? Even scarier!

But when it works, being part of a power couple is fabulously fulfilling!

My guest for this episode is Steve Cegelski, serial entrepreneur and owner of the full-service water treatment company Clear Chem. He also happens to be my husband.

Relationships between two self-employed people have their own unique challenges, quirks, and bonuses. This episode is all about navigating entrepreneurial couplehood (I’m looking at you, Beyonce and Jay-Z!).

From sharing workspaces to switching states, corporate structures to consistency, we share our biggest challenges and lasting lessons. Tune in for a behind-the-scenes breakdown of how each of us built our biz — and why entrepreneurial households actually have a leg up on those still working for others!

Hit play and find a new way to work! In this episode, you’ll learn:

  • The back-up plan that allowed Steven to launch a new business venture with less stress
  • How we managed the transition into a dual-entrepreneur household (and how margaritas smoothed the way)
  • Steven’s words of wisdom for new and aspiring entrepreneurs — and why entrepreneurship can actually offer MORE stability than the traditional job market
