What it’s really like to be married to your business partner

Wonder what it’s like to be married to your business partner? In this episode, Jesse and talk about hospitality, summer habits, and what it’s like to combine marriage and business.

Missed previous episodes of The Jo show? You can listen to them here.

Just Open the Door!

Remember that goal I set in 2018 to open our home every single week? It was hard and scary at first, but the more we did it, the more it’s become second nature to use!

Last week alone, we opened up our home all week to host three college girls who are volunteering at we hosted the Girls’ Bible Study for the teen girls at church (I think maybe 20 girls came?), we had multiple teens over, we had two couples over for dinner, and we had a family over for dinner.

And I loved it!

In this week’s episode of The Jo Show, Jesse and I talk more about the lessons we’ve learned on hospitality recently. We also share how it has changed our lives to re-define what true hospitality is.

(Want to hear more encouragement for practicing hospitality, even if it scares you? Be sure to check out the episode devoted to this topic with Jen Schmidt, author of .)

The Habit Trackers We’re Using This Summer

We also dive into the topic of Habit Trackers and how both of us are using them this summer — me for a specific goal and Jesse to help the kids stay on track and be more productive. I share how I’ve been making huge progress toward a goal with just a simple change in my perspective and by putting some accountability in place.

And Jesse shares how the printable habit lists he put together for the kids have made a big difference in encouraging the kids to work hard, play hard, and spend less time on electronics!

What It’s Like to Be Married to Your Business Partner

Instead of an interview, Jesse and I answer a follower’s questions on what it’s really like to work together as a married couple. We discuss decision making, how we handle conflict and disagreement, who decides how the money is spent, how we make decisions on what risks to take, and how we balance being a spender and a saver who are also married and in business together.

Whether you are a couple who works together or you are just curious to hear more of the behind-the-scenes of our business operations or you just want to know how we’ve stayed friends and business partners who are also married, you won’t want to miss this episode!

In This Episode:

[00:51] – So many people have been in and out of our house lately that we joke that we’re past the “Just Open the Door” stage and have moved onto “Just Leave the Door Open” stage!

[07:01] – Have you ever used a habit tracker? I just started using one to better prioritize my time and it’s working! (so far…) 

[13:30] – Jesse has been using a habit tracker with the kids to keep them busy and engaged! They are working toward a big “end of summer” surprise!

[16:26] – Over the next few weeks, Jesse and I will be tackling some of the most-asked questions and topics you all have submitted as podcast episode suggestions.

[17:06] – This week, we’re having a very honest conversation about what it’s like to be married and business partners — and how we make it work all while staying best friends.

[19:32] – How do we make big business decisions — does one person have more say than another? We share more on our roles and how they play out.

[24:09] – What if we don’t agree? We chat about what we do when we don’t agree and agreeing often involves waiting or compromising.

[28:12] – One of us is a spender and the other is a saver (can you guess who is who?) How does this work in our business?

New Kroger Cash Back Program = Earn Money for Things You Buy

Have you heard about the new Kroger Cash Back Program?! I am so excited about this!

Kroger has rolled out a where you can earn money on the items you buy everyday! This program is very similar to Ibotta.

Simply you wish to redeem to your Shopper’s Card before you purchase them. Once you buy the qualifying items, you will earn cash which will show up in your account within a week after purchasing them. You can then cash out your balance to your Shopper’s Card or PayPal account.

If you cash out using Paypal, there is a minimum $20 required to transfer your rewards.

When cashing out to your Shopper’s Card, please note that other members of your household may be able to use your on their next shopping trip. If you do not use the full amount in one shopping trip, you can use it in future shopping trips until you use all of the remaining amount.

Hey guys! MSM Team Member Gretchen here! I signed up for this last week and earned $12 over the weekend just buying things I already had on my shopping list. I was even able to stack coupons and Ibotta with it making these Real Good Frozen Pizzas a $6 moneymaker!! The cash back rewards showed up in my account within 24 hours. My favorite part is that I transferred my cash back rewards to my shopper’s card and was able to use that money to get “free” bodywash and deodorant for my husband today! Woohoo!!

Thanks, !
