What It's Like to Run a Business With Your Soulmate
Nicole has a delightful husband and two wonderful children, and I have a place in her life that's not quite either. (Ideally, when we're both dead, I'll be buried at her feet like a dog.) Since we started the site, we talk at least twice a day—about work, about our personal lives, about nothing. The only company rule we've made for ourselves is that if either of us is frustrated with the other, we talk it out; we never complain to someone else.
I feel bigger because of her. Every time she succeeds or experiences joy, I feel like it's happening to me. There's more of me because she exists. If that's not a soul mate, I don't know what is.
