Building a Business Together

Several years ago (about 4 1/2 years) my husband and I went to dinner with a large group of couples. One of girls hosting the dinner was the Grill Girl. She told us about her side gig of blogging and teaching cooking classes. When we left dinner, my husband looked at me and said that you should try doing that for fun with fashion!


I thought about it and it sounded like a fun way to get my creativity out while working at a law firm 60 hours per week with more than 50% of that time in the court room. I felt like my soul was being drained during the short time that I was working on foreclosures. This is definitely not how I had envisioned my law career. I wanted to help people like I had done in my internships in undergrad. I was doing the exact opposite of helping people, I was helping banks kick people out of their homes. It was the only job that I could find during the recession so it was foreclosure or unemployment for me.

My husband saw an unhappiness in me that he helped push aside by encouraging me to be creative. He helps me be the best form of me. If I had married a less supportive soul, I cannot even imagine the person I would be. We support each other’s dreams and help live the best life possible.


My husband continued to support my dream of working from home and making April Golightly a success by encouraging me to give up practicing law and focus on being a mom and building April Golightly. He supports me daily by making April Golightly a beautiful site, taking my photos, and being a great dad when I am busy working. It might seem like a single effort on my part, but it really takes the 2 of us to make the site successful. April Golightly has been our baby since day one! Harrison is still our first baby and Cami is our number one baby. We have a lot of love to give! Boca Raton Christmas Photography -9212

Do you support your partner? Does your partner support you? Could you be doing a better job?

  1. The best thing to have in life is a supportive spouse. I haven’t really worked in almost 6 years and I can’t tell you how much it means every time I ask my husband if I can do/buy something (which I only do for big and/or luxury things) and he replies “of course you can, you don’t need to ask me.”

  2. A good story, support is very important. Think about what problems your customers can solve with the app. To do this, conduct a survey and listen to all complaints and suggestions. It is better to take a good idea and add it with a unique functionality that only you will have. Contact professionals. There are enough mobile app developers on the market who will not only perform the technical part of the work, but also give practical advice.

  3. Thank you for sharing! If you look at the most successful entrepreneurs, they always have (or had at the first, most difficult stage) husbands or wives who unconditionally believed in them, who supported them in the beginning, went through difficulties with them. There are very few people of the entrepreneurial type at all times. They are brave and determined, confident in themselves and their goals, but they also sometimes need to feel someone’s absolute unconditional confidence in their future success 🙂

  4. Optimization of business processes, in turn, is performed continuously and covers, as a rule, a narrow area at the function level. It is characterized by more moderate risks and requires much less time to conduct. In addition, the re-engineering of business processes, in contrast to the optimization does not consider the existing process as a starting point.

  5. Thanks for sharing! It’s great that you had the support of your husband and it worked out for you. The key is to prioritize. It’s important to approach any problem from the end. Imagine a result, draw a route and start implementing it. This really works and can help you succeed in business.

  6. Support is crucial in a good plot. Consider what problems the app might be able to solve for your customers. Conduct a survey and listen to all complaints and recommendations to accomplish this. It’s preferable to take a good idea and combine it with a one-of-a-kind feature that only you will have. Make contact with experts. There are many mobile app developers on the market who can not only do the technical job but also provide useful advice.
