Curious about working with your significant other?

In this week’s episode, we talk about joining forces and using our powers for the greater good! You’ll get a behind-the-scenes look at what it’s like working with your significant other. We go over where the idea came from to work together, how things started off, how small ideas turned into big changes, and where the journey has taken us so far. Enjoy!

Don’t assume anything — talk about what’s going on!

In this episode:

  • Where the idea to work together came from
  • Why Lisa hesitated at the idea of a partnership
  • How Jesse started working for Elembee as a contractor
  • What we could expect from each other when working together
  • Communicate, communicate, communicate
  • How we started out small to test the waters
  • How Jesse got into video and audio editing and became Lisa’s in-house editor
  • The benefits of distracting each other and the right time to do so
  • The snowball effect

When working with others, discuss expectations up front to avoid resentment.
