Some highlights from this episode:

“We’re pretty much different in every aspect, with one exception - we’re both visionary thinkers. We look at the future.” - Mike 

“It consumes your life. We’ll be at home at dinner, trying to not talk about business, then within 10-15 minutes something comes up.” Cathy

“We both have the same vision and aspiration for what’s possible.” - Mike

“You’ve got to balance that being accommodating of each others’ strengths and weaknesses and also have patience on things you’re not quite so good at.” - Mike

“It’s not a case of, ‘we’re the boss, do as we say’ - no, we’re under the same rules. If the team have to do it, we both have to do it.” - Mike

“Our hack is understanding where each others’ strengths are, and not trying to force a square peg into a round hole.” - Cathy

“If you’re the owner of the business, you don’t have to try and prove yourself every day. I can sit at the back during meetings and let everyone talk - I don’t need to feel like people need to hear my opinions on everything. I then feel excited when the team come up with the ideas and raise the issues.” - Mike
