Some great highlights and quotes from this episode:

“Somehow, not even purposely, we found our strengths and just got stuck in. We didn’t even consciously say, ‘that’s yours, that’s mine’ we just somehow naturally resonated towards what our strengths were.” - Gail

“When we made the decision to do what we now do, we both realised from day one that it’s a responsibility and we do what we have to do.” Mark

“Differences of opinion is probably the most difficult thing to deal with when you’re looking at it as a business and leaving the personal issues out of it. All the other stuff is easy.” Mark

“It wasn’t like we just dove in head first with everything. We’ve evolved into it, and that’s because we work well together. We agree on things, and agree to disagree. We evolved gently.” Mark 

“I couldn’t manage our life being any other way than what it is. We’re together all the time, we get to spend quality time together all the time, and that’s special. As we grow, and grow together, things just get easier all the time.” Mark

“I think Business Couples have to have common goals and common interests. You have to both be looking at the same light at the end of the day and know what your direction is.” Mark 

“Too many people are focused on the negatives. At least one person in the relationship needs to be positive and always look at things on the upside… try to balance each other out.” Mark
