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
