We have the same goals, and living and working together, we’re in the position to make those goals happen together.

This is Company Ink, a new podcast for creative couples! We’re glad you’re here.

Welcome to our first podcast! We’re Lisa and Jesse, and this is our weekly podcast exploring relationships and online business as we work and live together as creative entrepreneurs. In this episode, we’re introducing ourselves and talking about our businesses, relationship, backgrounds, and what you can expect from our podcast. Enjoy!
