Ep. 82 - The Dance Of Doing Business With Your Spouse with Jim and Martha Brangenberg

Working together as husband and wife is not for the faint of heart. Many avoid it altogether. Some are surviving through it and others, like our guest Jim and Martha Brangenberg, are thriving. Not that every couple should work together but every couple can and do it well when they know how to do it. We had a great candid interview with Jim and Martha who both grew up in an entrepreneur family and avoided following the same path (Jim went to seminary) but eventually built several businesses together before settling into their current non-profit iWork4Him . They help business owners and W2 employees find purpose in their work and put on a variety of marriage retreats.
