I'm honored to be featured today on A Practical Wedding, a blog that is "working to build a cultural conversation about what it means to be young(ish) and married right now." A little over a year ago, Jerry and I were kicking around the idea of starting a company together.
Common wisdom these days says that you shouldn't get into business with family, perhaps even more so with a spouse. What if problems in business translate to problems in your relationship? Or vice versa? Jerry and I thought for a while about whether starting a business together was the right idea for us, and ultimately made the decision the same way we usually make decisions together: one part careful thought, one part gut feeling, and ten parts trusting each other.
There's no doubt that we made the right decision. Starting up Restrepo Leather together has been one of the most rewarding things we've done, and it's only just begun.
