Dave Hollis was a high-profile exec at Disney, but he left all of that behind to focus on his wife's (Rachel Hollis) budding business. As someone who works with his wife, I was eager to speak to Dave about the challenges they face and what it's like to be in a business where his wife is out front.
Counseling. Do it.
Dave and I are in agreement that just about every couple could use some counseling, but it's definitely true of couples that are also business partners. Not only is your family on the line, but your employees and their families as well. And, if you're putting yourself out there as someone people can learn from, they begin to trust in you and a failure in your spousal relationship can cause a breakdown in the trust with your audience.

At the end of the day, it takes a confident man to support his wife and let her shine without bruising his ego.
