Welcome back to another episode of the We Live to Build podcast.
Often times entrepreneurs choose co-founders to help them build their idea, knowing that this person (or these people) have complementary skill sets.
Some of us even dream of starting a company with our significant other because we assume our goals are aligned and we understand each other better than if it were a friend or stranger.
While everyone can gain something from this episode, it’s really tailored for people who either currently work with their spouse, or are thinking about starting a company with their spouse.
It’s important that you learn how to understand how to make it work, because it’s certainly not easy and can result in a failed business or a failed romantic relationship.
So thanks to Nellie Akalp, CEO and Founder of NetCorp, who started a business with her husband, grew it for 9 years, sold it to a publicly listed company, and then started NetCorp with him a few years later and they still run it together after 11 years, for peeling back the curtain on what it’s like to work with your spouse and how to keep it all from going sideways.
